Julio Cesar is a guy flying under the radar and has a total of 28 fights dating back to 2011. Granted his record might look heavily padded but the guy stays active and doesn't seem to be managed properly as far as getting big fights. He has some quality wins though esp. over Vitor Miranda who trains at Nogueira. If he can get a couple more wins this year I see him being highly marketable with that 28-0 record with a 85% kill ratio. Someone get that man a high profile fight to fast track him to the ufc.
you clearly havent gone through neves' record and checked who he's beat

id be shocked if he wins in bellator

This^, it seems many fans, often newer fans get obsessed with having a pretty undefeated record. In reality it's quality of opponent not quantity of wins that matters. Travis Fulton had something like a 50 fight win streak and Fulton is less than mediocre.

Sure it's possible he becomes the next Renan Barao but it's also possible he gets beat as soon as he steps up like tons of other fighters.

Wont be shocked if he wins cause he is a good prospect but his record is filled with padding, his last fight he fought a guy who made his pro debut.

So 27-0 vs 0-0 fighter, thats nuts.

But his record or his padded record doesnt mean he doesnt have skill and wont be a top fighter.

I think since Bellator isnt throwing him in a tournament they will take it easy with him and build him up.

Give him a 5-2 sort of guy imo.

Any news on his debut?
