Gabriel Figueiró Biography

Gabriel Figueiró was born on March 30, 1994, in Belo Horizonte, the capital city of the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais.

During his pre-teens (12), Gabriel and his family moved to Europe, establishing themselves on the Portuguese capital, Lisbon, where Figueiró started training jiu-jitsu. The interest for grappling started brewing after he watched Royce Gracie’s performances in the early Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) line-ups, and by the age of 17, he decided to join a local Gracie Barra Academy, where he started developing his skills under Diogo Valença’s supervision.

By the time Gabriel reached the blue belt rank, he had his mind set on becoming a professional jiu-jitsu athlete, and after his 19th birthday, he decided to move to São Paulo to train at the Alliance ‘Matriz’ Academy (HQ) on a full-time regimen. Back in his home country, Figueiró became a student of Thomas Lisboa, Michael Langhi and Fábio Gurgel.

As a brown belt, Figueiró started his coaching career at the Alliance HQ Academy, a tribute to how respected his jiu-jitsu qualities were regarded within the team’s leadership. Gabriel’s consistent form, competing in the local and international circuits would lead to his black belt promotion, on June 2019.
