After spending many years training under Carlson Gracie, Amaury was gracious as Carlson moved to the United States to manage the career of Vitor Belfort. Many of Carlson Gracie's students were left without an instructor so they joined together to form the famous Brazilian Top Team. Amaury decided on taking a different journey as he joined up with one of Carlson Gracie's close friends Master Osvaldo Alves. Amaury had extremely high regards for Master Osvaldo as Amaury was competing at an extremely high level.

In 1995 Amaury had his debut fight for Desafio, an international Vale Tudo event. Amaury had 3 fights in the evening, winning his first two fights by making his opponents tap by way of punches. Amaury would lose in the final as he was knocked out by Mestre Hulk only 23 seconds into the first round. In May of 1996 Amaury made his Ultimate Fighting Championship debut at the 9th event of their organisation. Amaury would face the formidable Don Frye, after 9 minutes of entertaining action Don Frye won the fight with a TKO.
