I keep breaking records! Most wins in @bellatormma history, most wins in Bellator title fights! I now also have the record for most Bellator fights, and already held the ones for most KO and most submission wins in the division. Thanks to my family, my team @pitbullbrothers, @patrickypitbull, @manosantanakarateig, @_gasparzinhomma, @cptamericas, @valdinesilva, @thiagotourao, @jorgeguimaraes, @helofaro, @podiumnutri, @nelsonbahia, @denilsonmauriciofisio, @roberto_freitas_fisioterapeuta and everyone else who's been helping me daily. I was very happy for once again having my wife and kid living my dream with me and watching me cageside. Thank you God for the opportunity. And having the homage to Ayrton Senna in my shorts and banner, and hearing his Theme of Victory after the win made this experience even more amazing. Thank you for the fight @matadorsanchez, you were one of the toughest guys I've ever faced and made this title defense very worth it. On to the next challenges! 馃嚙馃嚪Continuo quebrando recordes! Mais vit贸rias na hist贸ria do Bellator, mais vit贸rias em disputas de cintur茫o no Bellator! Sou agora tamb茅m recordista de lutas, al茅m de j谩 ter o recorde de nocautes e finaliza莽玫es na categoria.

Homenagear Ayrton Senna no meu short e banner e escutar o Tema da Vit贸ria ap贸s o resultado fez essa experi锚ncia ainda mais incr铆vel. Obrigado @matadorsanchez, voc锚 foi um dos lutadores mais duros que eu j谩 enfrentei e valorizou muito essa defesa de cintur茫o.
