Ricardo Evangelista Biography

Ricardo Evangelista was born on the 6th of April, 1986 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He started practising Jiu Jitsu when he was 13 years old due to his brother’s influence, who convinced Ricardo to attend his first class. It didn’t take long for Evangelista to find interest in the sport, and from his very early teens he started dedicating 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 competitors training alongside every day. The Grappling Fight Team was led taught by both Julio Cesar and Marcus Bello, these two coaches awarded Evangelista his black belt at the age of 22.
