You can only find him on sherdog with the "i" in his name. Edinaldo.

6'7", He's fought six times in 2011 with a 5-0 record (and one no-contest due to an eye poke).

Looks like he mostly has fought in Brazil against some semi-experienced competition and less exp comp.

UFC might give him another newcomer as well.

HW does need more fighters in it.

I haven't been impressed with any of the low level heavyweights who have fought recently. The division is always in need of new blood.

It's true. The article mentions his name is spelled two different ways. Typing either one into google will get you the sherdog page though.

I went to sherdog first and couldnt find it under Ednaldo, then had to search through all the Oliveira's, which is a lot. ha
