Victor Hugo

 

Victor Hugo initially made his name by winning a number of prestigious titles before achieving his black belt.  He completed the IBJJF Grand Slam  by winning the European Open, Brazilian National, Pan American and World Championship in both his weight class and the absolute division in 2019 as a brown belt.

Born in Forteleza, Victor Hugo would participate in a number of sporting activities like soccer and swimming, but he would never find his passion in any of these activities due to the belief that he wasn't athletically gifted enough to push those activities to a high level.  In his early teenage years, he would abandon his participation in sports altogether.

In an effort to keep his son active, Victor's father encouraged him to begin training BJJ with him.  Reluctant at first, Victor would appreciate the fact that Brazilian Jiu Jitsu did not require any particular athletic gifts for a practitioner to be successful.  Victor Hugo realized that one's development was much more controlled through consistent class attendance and hours on the mat.  Physical talent was not going to make someone successful alone.

After less than 5 years of training, Victor Hugo was able to secure multiple Brazilian National titles.  As a purple belt in 2016, Victor would make his first trip to the US to compete in the IBJJF World Championships.  It was there that he would win his weight division and the Absolute division as a purple belt.  Purple belt is considered one of the most difficult belts to secure the world title in.

It was during this trip that Victor Hugo would be introduced to the Ribeiro Brothers, Saulo and Xande.  The brothers would offer him the opportunity to train at the University of Jiu Jitsu in San Diego which he would take in September of 2016.  Under the Ribeiro flag, Victor Hugo would secure 6 world titles with four of them in Gi and 2 in No Gi.  Saulo Ribeiro would award Victor Hugo his black belt in 2019.

 

How Old Is Victor Hugo?

Victor Hugo was born in Fortaleza, the capital of the northeastern Brazilian state of Ceará on May 1, 1997.  He is currently 24 years of age.  He has been training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for approximately 10 years, having started when he was 14 at the urging of his father.  By the time he was 19, as a purple belt, he was already beginning to achieve his collection of BJJ competition titles.

 

Victor Hugo Family (BJJ and Otherwise)

Victor Hugo became involved in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu thanks to the encouragement of his father.  Though he was reluctant at first, he eventually realized that through hard work and dedication he could achieve his competition and life goals.

It was through a mutual friend that he was introduced to two BJJ black belt luminaries who would welcome Victor into their family.  Saulo and Xande Ribeiro are the most decorated brothers in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.  With twelve world titles between them and many, many other victories--the brothers welcomed a young purple belt named Victor Hugo into their family in 2016 when he moved to the United States to train at the University of Jiu Jitsu in San Diego full time.

Training under the Ribeiro flag has been extremely influential to Victor's development.  Besides the hard training at the University, Victor also has access to a very special American teammate, namely Rafael Lovato Jr.  With multiple world titles to his name, this undefeated MMA fighter and Bellator Middleweight champion has become a staple in the training of the young, developing Victor Hugo who has only scratched his full potential.
