Taura MMA signs BJJ aces Leo Leite, Fabio ‘Kamikase’ Alano

Taura MMA has signed two more BJJ stars: Leo Leite and Fábio ‘Kamikase’ Alano. At the Brazilian organization, they will join a list of grappling legends that already has fighters such as Sergio Moraes and Rousimar ‘Toquinho’ Palhares.

Leite (10-2) is one of the most decorated Brazilian fighters in BJJ and Judo history, having won two world championships for International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation, including a win in the 1999 final over BJJ legend Zé Mário Sperry. The 42-year-old also was a member of the Brazilian Olympic judo team in 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games.

Alano, in turn, won IBJJF world championships in 2014 and 2016, as a blue belt, and in 2016, as a purple belt. He also took the crown in Brazilian, Pan-american and European tournaments. The 28-year-old became known to the general public in 2019, when he was selected for reality-show Big Brother. However, three days before the start of the TV show, Fábio was eliminated for having a current sponsorship contract.

Also, Taura MMA has signed two more former UFC fighters: welterweight Wendell Oliveira (31-14), who faced Santiago Ponzinibbio and Darren Till inside the octagon and won seven of his eleven bouts since he left the promotion; and Carlos Huachín, who choose Taura to get back on track. The Peruvian 24-year-old will fight as a bantamweight and wants to be a contender to the belt currently owned by Douglas ‘He-Man’ (12-1).

Taura also inked a deal with lightweight Gladstone ‘Toninho Fúria’ Santos (35-11), bantamweight Herbeth ‘Índio’ (11-1), middleweight Nayib Lopez (10-0), and light heavyweight Rodolfo Bellato (6-1).
