Fighter Bio


Márcio Ribeirio Da Cruz (born April 24, 1978) is a Brazilian mixed martial arts fighter and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner trained by Marco Ruas. His nickname (Pé de Pano) literally means "cloth [or, towel] foot" in the Portuguese language, possibly alluding to the difficulty of catching him in a leg or ankle lock due to his flexibility. He has fought in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, defeating former champion Frank Mir by TKO at UFC 57. He also holds a win over Keigo Kunihara at UFC 55, and a controversial split decision loss to Jeff Monson at UFC 59. He lost to Andrei Arlovski at UFC 66 in December of 2006 by first round knockout.
