Elizeu “Capoeira” Zaleski Dos Santos | 19-5 | 5’11 170 lbs. | Age 32 | Reach 73” | Orthodox Stance |
Elizeu Zaleski Dos Santos is a Welterweight with a background in Capoeira from Francisco Beltrao, Parana, Brazil. He’s 5-1 in the UFC with five straight wins and three fight of the night bonuses. He loves to brawl and scored a “Knockout of the Year” candidate in his most recent fight against Sean Strickland in 2018.
Dos Santos has always been a finisher, winning 15 of his 19 pro fights by a KO or submission. Considering his willingness to brawl, it’s amazing he’s never been finished in his entire career. He lost in his first UFC fight to then 14-0 Nicholas Dalby but has bounced back perfectly to win his last five. He’ll put his streak on the line this Saturday, 9/22, against UFC newcomer Luigi Vendramini (7-0) at UFC Fight Night: Santos vs. Anders.
