Pedro Munhoz Wiki Update Wiki

Pedro Munhoz is a Brazilian bantamweight fighter currently signed to the UFC. He is a black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and trains out of Team Black House and Kings MMA in Los Angeles, California. He has fought for Resurrection Fighting Alliance where he held the bantamweight title. He has a notable win over Jeff Curran. He has a Bachelors degree in Physical Education. Of his ten career wins, seven have been finishes including six submissions.

Munhoz found a love for martial arts after watching Royce Gracie fight when he was young. He took up Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and has since attained a black belt as well as being a two time Brazilian National No-Gi champion. He began his professional MMA career in 2009 with a second round win by submission to strikes. He would win two more fights in his native Brazil before moving to the US in 2010. Over the next year, he would pick up another three wins to improve his overall record to 6-0. After taking over a year off from competition, he would be signed by RFA in late 2012. After picking up two first round submission wins, Munhoz would be given a shot at the vacant RFA bantamweight title. He would be paired up with UFC veteran, Jeff Curran, at RFA 9 and was able to win the title with a split decision. He would defend the title one time, against Billy Daniels at RFA 12 and he would win by submission in just 41 seconds.

In early 2014, Pedro was picked up by the UFC as a late replacement against Raphael Assuncao at UFC 170. Throughout the fight, he was able to keep up with the long time UFC veteran, but ultimately, Assuncao's superior striking and cardio would prevail resulting in a unanimous decision loss for Munhoz. He would get back on track though and win his next two fights for the UFC finishing Matt Hobar by TKO and Jerrod Sanders by Guillotine choke.
