He joined the UFC in 2014 and as of today, he stands at the 12th rank of the lightweight division rankings.

In a post that he released on social media, Ferreira said, “Hey guys man what a night last night was.. if you guys saw my fight I was fighting my fight me and my coach’s plan. How we planned it, was exactly how everything was going. But 3 weeks ago I hurt my rib in training but didn’t want to pull out from my fight, it wasn’t an option”

“I am suffering from a broken rib,” reveals Diego Ferreira
