Coming from a sporting family, Renato Velame studied BJJ at a very young age and it no surprise he became BJJ World Champion at the age of 20 in 2003. Since then, his arsenal of skills has grown by leaps and bounds. He is now also adept at boxing, wresting and kickboxing.
Renato gains inspiration from the Ragnar Lodbrok, the Danish and Swedish Viking hero and ruler in Viking Age Old Norse poetry and sagas, and his impressive MMA record is testament to that. His fight against Taras Grytskiv will be an unpredictable one as both of them are evenly matched, which makes for interesting viewing.
