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 Belém to attend high school and started training in capoeira. He started training MMA after he met Iuri "Marajó" Alcântara at the age of sixteen.
Fighter Trivia
