Claudio Mattos Biography

Claudio Mattos was born on the 16th of July 1981 in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. He started training Jiu Jitsu when he was 16 years old influenced by his older brother who always loved the fighting game and was an avid competitor. As a starting point, Claudio was lucky enough to have chosen one of the best in the business to instruct him, Vinicius Magalhaes. His Master Vinicius Magalhaes, also known as Draculino, was a huge asset in Claudio’s growth as a fighter, instructor and as a human being, instilling in Claudio not only the techniques that he displays on the mat, but also the high morals in which he dictates his life.

Claudio started teaching as a purple belt, as an assistant instructor of Master Magalhaes, a trade that he continued throughout his life. Today he is the main instructor of the Rio Sport Centre in Belo Horizonte. In September 2004 as a Brown Belt, Caloquinha premiered in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) against Igor Pitbull, he completely dominated that fight and finished with a Katagatame (Arm Triangle), he went on to fight a few months later in the beginning of 2005, Claudio went back to the rings this time to face the veteran Andre “Dida” Amado, the tough challenge against the former Chute Boxe standout would end in a draw.

By the end of 2005 Caloquinha received the long awaited Black Belt from the hands of his master Vinicius Draculino. He ventured again in the world of mixed martial arts at the end of 2006 and fought Thomas Hytten, he ended losing that fight due to a cut. He has since dedicated himself to Jiu Jitsu having very busy years in 2008 and 2009.

In 2010, Claudio Caloquinha won the Brazilian Trials and booked his place in the finals of the World Pro Cup championship in Abu Dhabi, he reached the final tapping everyone in his path, but was stopped in the final by a sweep from Durinho Burns. His fantastic start of 2010 continued as he won the SP Cup submitting everyone on his way and receiving as a prize an “All Expenses Payed” trip to the World Jiu Jitsu Championships.
