Ricardo Evangelista Biography

Ricardo Evangelista was born on March 6, 1986, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Influenced by his older brother, Evangelista picked up Jiu-Jitsu practice at the age of 15. It didn’t take long for Evangelista to find interest in the sport, and from his very early stages of training, he dedicated all his attention to BJJ.

His first instructors were Alexandre Barauna and Bruno Cunha who awarded Ricardo his blue and purple belts. Evangelista then changed to the UGF (Universidade Gama Filho) academy in the Northern area of Rio de Janeiro (which later changed its name to GFTeam). There Ricardo Evangelista’s Jiu-Jitsu took a step forward due to the team’s high level of athletes who trained with him day in, day out. This top tier training earned Evangelista his black belt on October 2007, at the age of 21, a rank awarded by Julio Cesar and Marcus Bello.
