Isaque Bahiense, the driving force behind the Dream Art team, is embarking on a new journey in mixed martial arts (MMA)!
He’ll also be shifting his focus to no-gi grappling from now on.
Bahiense, an accomplished gi competitor and IBJJF World Champion (2018), plans to make the 2024 Jiu-Jitsu World Championship his final bout for a title in gi competition.
Post-2024, he will dedicate his training to no-gi only, aiming for new heights – such as becoming a UFC champion.
Bahiense announced his decision via social media:
I started at Nova Uniao Bangu in 2007 and with that I followed the team’s entire success story in MMA.
At the time I had this ambition and after I moved to São Paulo I ended up losing that desire a little.
In recent years this has been reigniting, in 2024 I will do my last Jiu Jitsu World Championship and then I will dedicate myself to fighting no gi and becoming UFC champion.

Despite approaching 28, a relatively late age for such a transition, Bahiense’s robust foundation in both gi and no-gi grappling positions him well for success in MMA.
What do you think? How well will Bahiense do in mixed martial arts?
