Felipe Pena “Preguiça”

Felipe Pena, also known as Felipe “Preguiça”, is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt from the Gracie Barra academy in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and a black belt under Marcelo Azevedo. Regarded as one of the biggest prospects in the sport while in the lower belt divisions, Felipe Pena confirmed he was one of the top jiu jitsu competitors of his time with wins at tournaments such as Copa Podio, Brazilian Nationals and the World Championships at black belt. On May 2015 “Preguiça” tested positive for banned substance in USADA’s post tournament check-up for the world championship of 2014; as a result Felipe was suspended from any IBJJF tournament for the period of 1 year and stripped of his world title. Felipe Pena is also the younger brother of another grappling figure, Augusto “Tio Chico” Carsalade.

Felipe Pena “Preguiça” Biography

Felipe Pena was born on the 19th of October in the city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil. He started training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at the age of 14, strongly influenced by his brother Augusto Vieira, also known as “Tio Chico” (Uncle Fester). Preguiça’s first coach was Mauro Gerald, who was responsible for the kids BJJ program at Gracie Barra Belo Horizonte, however, once Felipe Pena reached blue belt level, Marcelo “Uirapuru” and Sérgio Benini became his mentors.

Ever since Felipe Preguiça started training with the adults team at the academy, he decided that he wanted to follow the career of a Jiu Jitsu competitor. Through hard work, dedication and his natural talent  Felipe quickly started making his mark in Jiu Jitsu, winning important tournaments at purple belt and brown belt, before earning his black belt from the hands of Master Draculino and Marcelo Azevedo (Uirapuru). Felipe has also found inspiration in his BJJ style in another product of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu academy of Gracie Barra at Belo Horizonte, Mr Romulo Barral.

On May 2015 Felipe Pena was caught by USADA’s post 2014 World Championship urine test with a banned substance. Pena complied with the USADA’s ruling helping assess what was at the origin of the failed drug test, which seemed to lie in a doctor prescribed gel which contained the aforementioned banner chemical. As a result Felipe was suspended from any IBJJF tournament for the period of 1 year (minimum sentence) and stripped of his world title.
