Growing up in Brazil, Daniel trained Jiu-Jitsu under his cousin Carlinhos Gracie at the family’s academy in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro. The academy later moved to Barra, Rio de Janeiro where the tough training continued. Daniel received his Black Belt from Carlinhos at the age of twenty-three. While Daniel was just a Yellow Belt, he began competing in various city and state Jiu-Jitsu tournaments in 1982. Beginning in 1994, Daniel competed in the Brazilian Nationals and in the Mundials. His submission grappling career includes two events in 2003 and in 2005.

Back in the 1997 both Renzo and Rickson Gracie traveled to fight in Japan. Their fights were so popular, that soon the Gracie Family was invited back to fight in various PRIDE events - Shock Wave, Bushido, Inoki Bom Ba Ye - the Gracie family were on some of the best PRIDE cards. Beginning in 2002, Daniel fought in four PRIDE events as a Heavyweight, winning three times. Facing Takashi Sugiura, Shinsuke Nakamura, Kazuhiro Nakamura and Wataru Sakata - Daniel fought against some of Japan’s top competitors, each time in an arena with well over 60,000 fans.

Haim Gozali, a Renzo Gracie Black Belt, produced the first Mixed Martial Arts event in Israel. Haim put together a great card of PRIDE and UFC veterans and invited Daniel to step into the cage and test his skills. Daniel fought in the inaugural IFC Israel Fighting Championship in Tel Aviv, Israel. He won by Rear Naked Choke over his opponent Martin Wojcik.

In the United States, Daniel has fought in some of Mixed Martial Arts great promotions - the Gracie Fight Championship, an event designed by Relson Gracie, the International Fight League as a Pitbull, an event where top teams pitted their best fighters against one another, and in Bellator in the premier Light Heavyweight tournament. His competitors included Wes Sims, fighting him twice to settle a grudge once in the GFC and once in the IFL, and Allan Goes in the IFL, Tim Carpenter and Duane Bastress in Light Heavyweight Tournament Bellator. Daniel has now taken his skills from the mat, the cage and ring and is creating champions in the UFC and CFFC. Click here to see more pics of Daniel’s MMA fighters.
