Jadyson "Little Wanderlei" Costa - Fighter Profile

Jadyson “Little Wanderlei” Costa began his martial arts career with Karate, Boxing and Muay Thai... MMA was the natural progression. Costa was dubbed “Little Wanderlei” because his fighting style resembled that of Wanderlei Silva.

Jadyson Costa describes his first MMA fights as “street” fights, with no rules and no gloves. Costa soon progressed to the big stage and has fought in organisations across the globe, including the legendary Japanese promotion – Pride. Costa has also trained with some of the biggest names in MMA, including Wanderlei Silva and Mauricio Shogun Rua.

After a series of losses, Jadyson Costa moved to South Africa to fight and teach. The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt soon found a home in the EFC and showcased his incredible grappling skills to win his first two fights via submission. This earned Little Wanderlei a welterweight title shot against Dallas Jakobi at EFC 13.
