Davi Cabral Biography

Davi Cabral was born on March 19, 1999, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he grew up.

Martial arts entered Cabral’s life during kindergarten, the time when the young Carioca started practicing judo. Continuing his path in combat sports, Davi joined Muay Thai at the age of 11, which he trained for a few years, up until he discovered jiu-jitsu by the end of 2010.

The appeal for grappling derived from Davi’s love for mixed martial arts, particularly exacerbated after he watched the famous triangle choke finish used by Anderson Silva against Chael Sonnen at UFC 117. The famous middleweight title fight and the ground skills displayed by Silva led Davi to a jiu-jitsu academy. The workgroup there was led by Everaldo Penco and Bruno Granola.

During the early stages of his career, Cabral started taking the sport more seriously, turning into a full-time athlete as a 17-year-old blue belt.

Cabral climbed the early belt ranks of the sport guided by Penco, who coached Davi up until his blue belt. He later continued his development with Grandola, and Júlio César Pereira, the leader of GF Team, who awarded Davi his purple, brown, and black belts – the latter in October 2020.
