Biography
Figueiredo was born in Soure, Pará, Brazil, a small city on the isle of Marajó where buffaloes roam freely. His father was a buffalo herder who practiced luta marajoara, a local folk wrestling style. Deiveson has a younger sister and a brother – Francisco – who also is a professional mixed martial artist signed with the UFC. He moved to Belem to attend high school and started training in capoeira. He started training MMA after he met Iuri Marajo at the age of sixteen.
Fighter Trivia
Figueiredo worked as a bricklayer, hairdresser, and sushi chef before competing in MMA professionally. He purchased a pet water buffalo bull using some of his early MMA purses, which he has named Ferdinand. Following a stint at Team Alpha Male, Deiveson returned to his native Brazil and founded Team Figueiredo gym in Belém.
