Davi Ramos said yes to debuting in the UFC on one weeks notice proving his bravery is only equaled to his work ethic.
Sadly he lost a unanimous decision to Sergio Moraes back in March. However he’s adamant to prove what he can do with an adequate fight camp. The upcoming UFC card in Sao Paulo Brazil looks good to him but he still hasn’t gotten official word from the promotion.
“I’m waiting for the confirmation of my next fight, waiting for the contract,” Ramos told MMA Fighting. “I believe (my next UFC fight) will be close (to the ADCC), so my coaches decided that it’s better to turn my focus back to MMA. I really wanted to compete at the ADCC, but I have to respect my coaches.”
Ramos told MMAFighting – he didn’t even train for his UFC debut since he was on vacation for two weeks before the fight, and used the few days leading up to UFC Fight Night 106 to cut weight.
“The lesson I learned with that fight is that I have to respect my coaches when following a strategy that that’s not the same I usually use,” Ramos said. “I wanted to submit him, but I had to hold back because I didn’t train for that fight. I worked out twice to cut 15 pounds on short notice, so I couldn’t train. The lesson I learned is that I can also trust in my striking as much as I trust in my jiu-jitsu.”

Even though Ramos will be missing ADCC he opted to appear at Berkut Jiu Jitsu scheduled for Setpember 9th in Rio de Janeiro
“My focus right now is the UFC, but I’m a jiu-jitsu fighter,” he said. “If I stop training jiu-jitsu, my jiu-jitsu will drop. I don’t want to let that happen, so that’s why I stay active and training at the highest level.”
