Thiago Santos is a Brazilian mixed martial artist who competes in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). He currently holds an impressive record of 21-7 and also has multiple championships under his belt.

Santos began training at the age of 15 and made his professional debut in 2006. In 2009, he joined the Jungle Fight promotion after competing on The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 2. During his time with Jungle Fight, he claimed two championship titles while competing as a light heavyweight and middleweight.

In 2013, Santos signed with UFC and since then has gone 9-5 with the organization. He fought primarily as a light heavyweight but was later dropped to middleweight where he proved himself to be one of the top contenders in that division. In 2019, Thiago would face then champion Israel Adesanya for the title of undisputed Middleweight champion – though ultimately losing by decision – it was still an incredible performance from Thiago despite him coming up short on winning gold that night..

Thiago is known for his aggressive approach to fighting which often sees him put together highlight reel worthy finishes throughout fights due to both powerful strikes along with high level jiu-jitsu credentials which have been seen when taking opponents back down before locking in submissions or raining down heavy ground and pound pressure until stoppages occur; this makes for some exciting performances whenever ‘Marreta’ steps into the octagon! He’s also known for having a great conditioning which allows him to go five full rounds if required without any gas tank difficulties whatsoever – making it very hard for opponents too outlast him during longer fights!

Outside of fighting , Thiago loves playing soccer, spending time outdoors with friends & family, watching movies & is even developing interest​s​ ​in​ music production​​ . This can be seen through his involvement within organizations such as GERAÇÃO MMA​​ ​which does an amazing job helping young people become role models through sports among other activities like teaching them about& stressing upon building self respect & discipline as well!

Overall Thiago Santos is certainly one extraordinary individual who continues to keep pushing himself each day striving towards greatness within combat sports ranks all while aiming higher outside ​of​ it
