Leonardo Santos Fighter Statistics

Pro MMA Record: 18-6-1

Santos was born on February 5, 1980 in Rio de Janeiro. His brother is MMA fighter Wagnney Fabiano. He started training Jiu Jitsu when he was 5 years old under the legendary trainer Wendell Alexander (Co-Founder of Nova Uniao) in Vila da penha (Rio de Janeiro) at the Mello Tenis Club. Although Santos as a kid had other interests (mainly soccer) and didn’t enjoy training all that much but he felt obliged to train as his older cousin and brother were avid Jiu Jitsu practitioners. With time Santos started enjoying the benefits of Jiu Jitsu and also started enjoying the BJJ routine, success in BJJ Comps came with this new found love for the martial art.
