Luccas Lira Biography

Luccas Lira was born on January 11, 1998, in the city of João Pessoa, the capital of Brazil’s Paraíba state.

Growing up Lira was always very connected to a sporting lifestyle, going through different sports during different stages of his life. These included basketball, football (soccer), volleyball, beach volleyball, handball, tennis, judo, and swimming.

Although he tried judo for a very brief period, Lira’s first real martial arts experience was through jiu-jitsu at the age of 17, an event that took place at his weightlifting gym, after the proximity with a few BJJ classes (also held at said gym) sparked his curiosity.

Carlos Augusto, also known as Zau, was Lira’s first instructor at team Halavanca and a coach of tremendous importance in Luccas’ continued interest in this sport during the early stages of his development.

As a blue belt, Luccas competed against an athlete named Felipe Porto in Abu Dhabi and the two became good friends. Porto represented Miami’s team, Fight Sports, and it was by his influence that Luccas Lira eventually became a member of the association’s professional squad in the Summer of 2019.

During his time with Fight Sports (2019-2023) Lira earned his purple and brown belts but ended up leaving the team during the Spring of 2023 after a disagreement with the squad’s head coach, Roberto Cyborg. Luccas then joined the Atos team’s Miami affiliate in 2023 and received his black belt from the gym’s head instructor, Leo D’Avila on June 16 that year.
