Murilo Santana’s Biography

Murilo Santana was born in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil on the 13th of April 1983. He started training with Mario Yamasaki (the famous UFC referee) in Sao Paulo, earning his black belt training with Yamasaki. When Mario moved to the United States to open an academy (and later referee MMA events) Santana decided to move to the Equipe Barbosa, a team led by Marcos Barbosa where Murilo already had many personal friends.

Under the Barbosa banner, Murilo’s Jiu Jitsu flourished, going through his best period as a competitor. In 2015 Murilo moved to the United States, more specifically New York, where he helped kickstart the Unity BJJ academy.
