Caio Borralho’s Proven Success Strategy

Caio Borralho has a simple philosophy. “I don’t like to waste my energy thinking too much about the future,” he spills to His eyes are on the present, the fight that looms ahead. He’s determined to prove he’s a UFC star in the making.

This Saturday, he’s set to face Paul Craig at UFC 301. The venue? Farmasi Arena in Rio de Janeiro. Borralho’s record? Impressive, with no losses in his last 15 fights. It’s been nearly nine years since he tasted defeat. He credits his success to a mix of persistence, discipline, and knowledge.

Oh, and teamwork. Borralho isn’t going solo. He’s backed by a robust team from The Fighting Nerds camp in Sao Paulo. “We have doctors, physical therapists, and trainers,” he says. Their collective effort? It’s what powers his performances.

Borralho’s UFC journey has been stellar. He’s a Dana White’s Contender Series alum, with victories over notable fighters. Each win, especially the one against Michal Oleksiejczuk, which bagged him a $50,000 bonus, has been a step forward. “The bonus changed my life,” he admits, revealing it helped him secure a home in Brazil.

Next up is Craig, a formidable opponent with a knack for submissions. Borralho respects Craig’s skills but is unfazed. “He’s dangerous, especially on the mat,” Borralho acknowledges. Yet, he’s confident. His strategy? Keep the fight standing, aim for a knockout.

Borralho’s mantra for the camp has been clear. “I’ll knock out Paul Craig,” he declares. His goal is to ascend the rankings, eyeing the Top 10, then the Top 5. This fight, he believes, is crucial for his career trajectory.

Despite the increasing stakes, Borralho’s approach remains unchanged. He treats every fight as if it’s his last, his toughest. So far, this mindset has served him well. “I’m quite happy with my ascension in the sport and in the UFC,” he concludes, ready for whatever comes next.
