Mixed martial arts careerEdit

Jungle FightEdit

With the departure of Marcelo Guimarães, who was champion of the middleweight division in Jungle Fight, the organization decided to hold a tournament to crown a new champion. He fought against Eder Baiano Jones. Alcântara won via split decision and advanced in the tournament, then faced Ederson Cristian Macedo and won via armbar submission. At Jungle Fight 47, he was crowned champion by defeating Itamar Rosa winning via TKO.

Ultimate Fighting ChampionshipEdit

Alcântara made his UFC debut replacing Roger Hollett to face Wagner Prado in a light heavyweight bout on January 19, 2013 at UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Bisping.[3] He won the bout via kneebar submission in the second round and earned Submission of the Night honors.[4][5]

Alcântara was expected to make his welterweight debut against Jason High at UFC on Fuel TV 10.[6][7] However, High was pulled from the bout in late April in favor of a matchup on the same card against Erick Silva after Silva's original opponent was scratched from the event.[8] Alcântara instead faced promotional newcomer Leandro Silva.[8] He won the fight via unanimous decision.[9]

Alcântara faced promotional newcomer Igor Araújo on October 9, 2013 at UFC Fight Night 29.[10] Araújo defeated Alcântara via unanimous decision.[11]

Alcântara faced promotional newcomer Albert Tumenov on February 15, 2014 at UFC Fight Night 36.[12] He won the fight via split decision.[13]

Alcântara was expected to face Santiago Ponzinibbio on July 5, 2014 at UFC 175.[14] However, Ponzinibbio pulled out of the bout citing a knee injury[15] and was replaced by Kenny Robertson.[16] Alcântara lost the fight via unanimous decision.[17]

Alcântara moved back up to middleweight to face Richardson Moreira on January 31, 2014 at UFC 183.[18] He won the fight by split decision.[19]

Alcântara faced Kevin Casey on July 15, 2015 at UFC Fight Night 71.[20] He lost the fight by unanimous decision, and was subsequently released from the promotion.[21]
