    Name: Murilo Bustamante
    Gym: Brazilian Top Team
    Record: 15-8-1
    Accomplishments: UFC Middleweight Championship (2002), Pride Middleweight Grand Prix Runner up (2005)

    Born in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, Murilo Bustamante at a young age had always wished to be a professional surfer along the glistening beautiful shores of Arpoador. He abandoned those dreams to enact on a new one. The world of Judo and Jiu-Jitsu. And from the ages of 10-18 he was tutored by none other than Carlson Gracie himself, where he received his black belt at age 18. At 19 years of age, he grew into boxing gloves where he would train rigorously.

    Murilo would go on and win numerous national grappling titles such as, ADCC World Submission Wrestling Championships and CBJJ World Championship. He began his career of MMA/NHB in 1991 where he would fight Marcelo Mendes at Desafio-Jiu-Jitsu vs. Luta Livre. He won by TKO. He would enter a one night 8 man tournament at Martial Arts Reality Superfighting in 1996 where he would go to the finals to face off against monstrous Tom Erikson, Bustamante would be outweighed by 80 pounds but the match ended after 40 minutes to a draw. From there he entered the UFC, where he would face off against Dave Menne for the UFC Middleweight Title. He would win by TKO and win the UFc Middleweight Championship, a title he successfully defends against Matt Lindland by submission choke. Murilo would vacate the UFC title however to enter Pride FC under the persuasion of Antonio Rodrigo Nougeria and the higher rate of pay. Murilo would find moderate success and even fought for the Pride Middleweight title but lose to Dan Henderson by split decision in an IOpen Weight Grand Prix in 2005. Murilo would retire from MMA in 2012...against Dave Menne, which would be his last match where he wins by UD.

    Today Murilo Bustamante can be found teaching his new students at Brazilian Top Team in Rio de Janeiro. Considered one of the top trainers in the world in BJJ. Murilo will be remembered as one of the pioneers of BJJ and one of the most daring fighters in the world against bigger men.

    I have a suggestion that you can take or leave: with these, tell us a little about what they're doing now.

    And also, something about how old they are and how old they were when they competed would be decent information too.

    Just thoughts, I'm enjoying reading these.

    Not always the most exciting fighter to watch,but hes definitley tough. Kind of like the demian maia of his day. He gave rampage all he could handle,despite being a MW.

    I will always remember him as one of the most unlucky fighters. He could not catch a break with the judges or refs

    Done, it's always good to get feedback if something's missing the reader wishes to know more of. And thank you.

    I first saw him in his pride days which was kind of the end of his time on top...i always wished he fought more,but i guess he was part time cos he was teaching,and kinda winding down his career. In Pride though it was a place for guys who just wanted to fight here and there like that. He stepped in on short notice against rampage,cos Arona got injured...and made a fight out of it!

    He was middle aged when he entered Pride, and remember he vacated the UFC title for Pride....after beating two of the best middleweights in the world in Dave Menne and Matt Lindland. Even Murilo knew back then about the low pay the fighters received.
