Thiago Santos made his MMA debut in October 2010. For two years he fought in Brazil, before moving to the UFC. By the time he moved to the UFC, Santos had a record of 8 wins and just 1 defeat in his MMA career. His only loss was against top-ranked UFC welterweight Vicente Luque (back in Brazil).

Santos made his UFC debut on the 3rd of August, 2013 at UFC 163. He fought Cezar Ferreira and lost the fight due to submission in the very first round. He bounced back with a win over Ronny Markes, but suffered a defeat once again, this time at the hands of Uriah Hall at UFC 175.

Following this, Santos went on a four-fight unbeaten run before another two-fight skid pegged him back. Another four-fight winning streak followed before he faced a loss again.

On the 18th of September, Santos moved to the light-heavyweight division and started off with a win over Eryk Anders. He quickly rose through the ranks, and got himself a title shot against Jon Jones at UFC 239 in July 2019. A narrow split decision loss ruined Santos’ chances of getting his hands on the LHW title. He has never won a fight since then, with his current MMA record – 21 wins and 9 losses.
