Mario Reis Biography

Mario Reis was born in 1979, being raised in Porto Alegre, Brazil, in the Gaúcho region of the country.

Not much is publically known about Reis’ childhood years, what is common knowledge is that Reis started his jiu-jitsu tuition with the legendary Zé Mario Sperry – the co-founder of Brazilian Top Team, with whom he reached the blue and purple belt ranks. During his rise through the grappling belts, Mario became widely recognized as one of the biggest prospects in the sport.

At a later stage, Mario met and befriended another local jiu-jitsu talent in Fabricio Werdum. The pair became very close and with their friendship tightening, Reis decided to move to Werdum’s (Winner-Behring) where his instruction was picked up by coach Sylvio Behring. Reis was promoted to black belt by the Behring in 2003 winning the IBJJF World Championships and the CBJJO World Cup that year in the black belt division, the two most important titles in the sport at the time. He then became the first black belt to achieve this feat. While conquering the double, Mario Reis also managed to submit two BJJ legends in the process, Fredson Paixao and Alexandre “Soca”.

It was in 2006 that Mario Reis first came to Europe to deliver a few seminars in Spain and Holand, helped by his good friend Fabricio Werdum who helped him establish the right contacts. He has since settled a few schools in the old continent, namely in England and in Spain.

Mario Reis returned to Brazilian Top Team, but in July 2006 he settled at Gracie Barra, a union that was promoted by Mario’s sponsor. It was also in 2006 that Mario Reis was scouted by Price Fighting Championships promoters to be a part of the MMA organization’s roster, though the invitation was denied by Mario who preferred to keep his focus on Jiu Jitsu. More recently, Mario Reis moved to the Alliance team.
