Mahamed Aly Biography

Mahamed Aly was born on the 11th of January 1994 in Rio de Janeiro – Brazil, being raised in Duque de Caxias where he lived the first 9 years of his life.

Aly’s father, who named him after the legendary boxer “Muhammad Ali”, was murdered when Mahamed was 9 years old. This tragic event led the family to relocate to an uncle’s house in Jacarepaguá, and later Gardenia Azul. All regions within Greater Rio de Janeiro.

Mahamed became a fan of mixed martial arts (MMA) in his teens and decided to start training kickboxing when he was around 15 years of age. After a few months of training, he tried some MMA sparring and ended up being triangle choked with ease by his training partner on the ground. Aly was surprised by how effortless the jiu-jitsu movements looked and decided to add grappling to his routine, choosing Eduardo Brigadeiro‘s academy for that effect.

Throughout the course of 1.5 to 2 years, Aly focussed on jiu-jitsu, earning his blue belt, but as his aspirations had always leaned towards becoming a professional MMA fighter, he opted to switch camps, moving on to Team Nogueira, where he could focus on this goal.

During 2012 Mahamed focussed on his MMA, training jiu-jitsu solely with punches and geared towards fighting in the cage. His focus had him leaving his mother’s accommodations, moving into Team Nogueira’s fighter house.

Being 98kg (216lbs) Aly trained with many of the bigger guys at the gym, most of which were professional athletes. Although Mahamed lobbied for a debut in the cage, coaches Antônio Rodrigo “Minotauro” and Rogério Nogueira held him back due to his age (17).

Late in 2012 Team Nogueira’s BJJ coach Everaldo Penco, convinced Mahamed to enter a jiu-jitsu tournament, a competition he won with ease, earning his purple from the Nogueira brothers and instructor Penco after the event. The win and the promotion sparked Aly’s interest in jiu-jitsu and in 2013 geared his focus back towards BJJ.

Mahamed Aly met Lloyd Irvin during his jiu-jitsu tour while traveling the world competing at the Abu Dhabi World Pro and IBJJF World Championship (2013). Irvin saw great talent in Aly extending an invitation for him to come and train with his team in Maryland, USA. At that time Mahamed was still attached to his Rio de Janeiro roots and refused the offer.

In 2014 Mahamed did the same tour, traveling from Abu Dhabi to California – USA before the World Championship. This time around he stayed at Lloyd Irvin’s camp as his friend Erberth Santos was already settled there. Aly enjoyed the stay and ended up winning the world title.

On his return to Rio de Janeiro, coach Everaldo awarded Mahamed Aly his brown belt. Shortly after he returned to the US (and TLI) ahead of the No-Gi World Championship and the IBJJF New York Pro.

During 2015, while traveling in between camps, Mahamed had a tremendous campaign, winning the majority of important tournaments available in BJJ’s calendar. These achievements led to Mahamed Aly’s black belt, awarded in September 2015 by Lloyd Irvin.
