Matheus Costa Biography

Matheus Costa was born on January 27, 1994, in Niterói, a municipality of the state of Rio de Janeiro in the southeast region of Brazil. He started learning how to grapple at the age of 8 through judo, a sport he practiced for 2 years.

Matheus’ early teens coincided with a time when the (now defunct) Japanese mixed martial arts promotion Pride Fc was at the peak of its popularity. Influenced by the good performances of jiu-jitsu athletes such as Rodrigo Minotauro and Ricardo Arona inside the ring, Matheus set his sights on BJJ. Although his parents tried to veto Matheus’ decision – believing jiu-jitsu was too violent for their son, Costa managed to convince them to accept his decision in exchange for higher grades at school.

Instructor Guto Vicente was Matheus’ first instructor, himself a direct student of two historic Niterói figures – Luis Carlos and Master Barradas (RIP). Vicente graded Costa through all belts, including his black belt, Which Matheus received on June 17, 2015.

The decision to become a jiu-jitsu pro-athlete occurred as a brown belt, but working with a smaller team made it harder for Costa to reach his full potential. Understanding this issue, and with his instructor’s approval, Matheus decided to join GF Team on June 2016.
