He carries the ring name “The Bulldozer” and trains at the unique Shaved Bears MMA fight club. Boser started fighting in the UFC in October 2019 and he was put up against Daniel Spits in UFC on ESPN 6 in October 2019. Impressive on his debut, he pushed spits to a full three rounds and earned the nods of all the judges. Losing his next fight against Ciryl Gane, he took a fight in June 2020 in UFC on ESPN 12 and he was put inside the same cage as Philipe Lins. He won that fight impressively and knocked out his opponent in the first round with a heavy punch.

He goes by the nickname “Bebezao” and he polishes his fighting skills at the HWB _ Heavyweight Brothers MMA. Pessoa is coming in with a 10-1 professional fighting record with six victories coming from a way of knockout. Prior to making it to the UFC roster, Pessoa came from different MMA organizations such as LFA, Shooto Brazil, DC Fighters, New Corpore Extreme and Full Fight. Losing in the first round in his UFC debut in August 2019, it took him only two months to get inside the cage once again. In UFC Fight Night 162, he went up against Jeff Hughes and pushed him to the limit and earned his first win in the UFC via unanimous decision.
