Turman was born and grew up in Curitiba, Brazil. He initially started training Muay Thai to lose weight, but seeing names like Anderson Silva and Jon Jones at UFC that Wellington found, he needed to migrate to MMA.
Mixed martial arts careerEdit
The premiere in the amateur category took place at 17 years of age. With five wins in five fights in the amateur cartel, Turman turned 18 and decided to start his professional career.
Ultimate Fighting ChampionshipEdit
Turman was scheduled to face Sean Strickland on October 31, 2020, at UFC Fight Night 181. However, on September 29, Turman pulled out due to COVID-19 sequelae that rendered him unable to train after his two-week quarantine ended on September 24, 2020.
Turman faced UFC newcomer Bruno Silva on June 19, 2021 at UFC on ESPN 25. Turman managed to secure multiple takedowns and took Silva's back, but ultimately lost the fight via knockout late in round one.
