One more for the record books! Most wins in @bellatormma, most title wins, most consecutive title defenses in the division. I said it before this fight, I’m just getting started. It was an even better night to do so after seeing my friend and teammate @leandrohigomma get a great win earlier. The only way from here is up! Thank you to everyone that has helped me get this win. @patrickypitbull @cptamericas @evertonboxe @manosantanakarateig @thiagotourao @podiumnutri @valdinesilva @_gasparzinhomma @teresasilvafreire @davifreireofficial @macleiluta @dr.buenonovais and everyone else at @pitbullbrothers.
