Carlos Holanda “Esquisito” Biography

Carlos Holanda Vieira was born in Manaus, State of Amazonas – Brazil. He entered Faustino Neto, AKA “Pina” BJJ academy in 2000, joining one of the toughest gyms in the state with fighters such as Bibiano Fernandes and Dawglish Sousa.

He quickly established himself as one of the best competitors there, and started training more in Rio de Janeiro at both the Gracie Barra gym and the Osvaldo Alves academy (Pina’s master). Osvaldo was a big influence in the evolution of “Esquisito” putting tremendous belief in him, a belief that gradually converted into titles.

In 2009 Carlos Holanda joined a different team, Checkmat. He had been good friends with Lucas Leite for a while (who is one of Checkmat’s main athletes) and decided to join the team. The change was beneficial for Vieira Holanda as he went on to ad another trophy to his curriculum almost immediately, the prestigious Rio Open.

In 2009, Esquisito was also one of the loudest voices against the 50-50 guard, heavily criticising the use of it and Guilherme Mendes (one of his biggest rivals in the Pluma weight division).
