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 – commonly 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, though once Felipe Pena reached the blue belt level his tuition was taken over by Marcelo “Uirapuru” and Sérgio Benini.

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.

USADA 2014 IBJJF Ban

On May 2015 it was announced that Felipe Pena had been caught by USADA’s post 2014 IBJJF World Championship urine test for banned substances. Pena complied with the USADA’s ruling, helping the investigation assess the origin of the banned substance, which pointed to a gel that had been prescribed by his doctor. The gel which contained a banned 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.
