Jonas “Shiva” Bilharinho

31 | 5’11″ | Rio de Janeiro, Brazil | 9-1-1 | 8 Finishes | 7 KO/TKOs, 1 Submission (RNC) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 55-13-1 | Best Win – Mario Israel (9-0)

In 2016, Jonas Bilharinho was one of the best prospects out of Brazil, but suffered a disappointing loss to Valdines Silva. Following that loss, Bilharinho took a layoff of a little over two years. He came back in October of 2019 and scored a highlight-reel flying knee knockout. He fought last season on the Contender Series getting his opportunity. Although he scored a highlight-reel wheel kick knockout the fight was lackluster. Bilharinho didn’t get the contract but arguably should’ve.

Bilharinho is an absolute sniper with an incredible sixth-sense-like ability to finish the fight. He’s a master of the range being able to control the distance. Bilharinho throws laser straight punches and a very quick left kick to the body. He just throws a lot of snapping kicks and long punches to commit on bigger strikes. Bilharinho is very technical and still explosive when he wants to be. Dana should take another look.
