Originally from Brasília, Brazil, Inocente first began training in striking at the age of four, coached by his father, and then began training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu at the age of seven. Inocente would go on to have accomplished careers in professional boxing and kickboxing, winning various titles; Inocente is a former five-time Brazilian Kickboxing Champion, a three-time Pan-American Champion, and a three-time South American Champion, among other titles.
Mixed martial arts careerEdit
Inocente made his professional MMA debut in 2005 and fought seven bouts in five years, two of them being for Shooto. There he defeated Vitor Miranda and one month later Gustavo Moia, to become the Shooto South American Heavyweight (220 lb) Champion. In 2011, with a record of 5-2, Inocente signed with Strikeforce.
Ultimate Fighting ChampionshipEdit
After the demise of Strikeforce, Inocente signed with the UFC.
Inocente was expected to face Shane del Rosario in a Heavyweight bout on December 28, 2013 at UFC 168. However, both participants pulled out of the bout citing injuries. Inocente's knee injury was exacerbated when he was re-injured by Alistair Overeem during training; a move that resulted in Overeem being asked to leave the Blackzillians. Reportedly, Inocente was sparring with Overeem and, despite having a broken hand, was getting the better of the exchanges until Overeem took Inocente down, causing the injury to Inocente's knee.
After over two years away from active competition due to injuries, Inocente made his UFC debut at The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale on July 6, 2014 against Derrick Lewis. He lost the fight via KO in the first round.
Inocente then dropped to Light Heavyweight and faced Australian Anthony Perosh at UFC Fight Night 55 on 8 November 2014. He lost the fight via submission in the first round and later dismissed from the promotion.
Glory World SeriesEdit
Controversy at Glory 43 New YorkEdit
He scored controversial decision upset of Benjamin Adegbuyi in the main event of Glory 43: New York, after appearing to lose two of the three rounds they had fought. The result was met with boos from the crowd, venting fury on Twitter shortly afterwards.
