Pedro Munhoz is a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter who currently competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He was born on April 24, 1987, in Curitiba, Brazil. He began training Brazilian jiu-jitsu at age 14 and made his MMA debut in 2009. Since then he has amassed an impressive record of 18 wins and 4 losses. In 2016, he signed with the UFC and has since become one of the best bantamweight fighters in the world.
Throughout his career, Munhoz has fought some of the biggest names in MMA including former UFC Bantamweight Champion Renan Barão and top 10 ranked fighters Raphael Assunção and John Dodson. His most notable win came when he defeated fellow Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt Jimmie Rivera by submission at UFC Fight Night 135; for this achievement he was awarded “Performance of The Night” honors from the promotion.
Munhoz also possesses an impressive ground game; against Frankie Edgar at UFC 245, he displayed excellent defensive grappling to remain safe off his back while using guard pulls to set up sweeps or submissions attempts as well as working diligently for transitions whenever possible. This earned him a unanimous decision victory over former lightweight champion Edgar—a significant step forward for Munhoz’s career as it was only his second win over a ranked opponent inside the octagon after beating Assunção two years prior.
Outside of competition, Munhoz is known for being very humble yet determined to make it to the top echelon of bantamweight contendership within short order; due to this approach many believe that if given enough time Pedro could even challenge current divisional kingpin Petr Yan for gold sometime down the line—a feat which would surely make Brazil proud if achieved!
Overall Pedro Munhoz can be considered one of modern day’s most underrated talents due to his ability blend technical striking with smart defensive grappling under pressure combined with great cardio which allows him keep going strong round after round despite facing tougher opponents than almost anyone else on today’s roster– making him exciting watch every time out no matter who may be standing across from him inside cage!
