Ulpiano moved from Brazil to Los Angeles with 100$ in his pocket, moved to United States to fight MMA. Later he ended up opening up one of the First Gracie Barra Gyms in 2007 in Santa Ana, California. In 2010 he moved to Houston Texas and started his very successful Gracie Barra Westchase Gym. It was great to catch up with him and talk about his journey, living the American Dream and much more. Enjoy!
