Does anybody know anything about this guy? Maybe he'll be like Dos Santos and kill Stevens?

I wouldn't bet against him. He's won his last 9 fights, mostly in Brazil but one was in Pancrase. He's a bit of a submission fighter with 6 of his 11 career wins by tapout (4 decisions), maybe not much of a power guy as his only KO/TKO win was actually due to a cut. His most notable teammates in his camp, Gracie Fusion, are Marcio "Pe de Pano" Cruz and Delson "Pe de Chumbo" Heleno, a former IFL standout. He's also quite young, just turned 24 Sunday. Won't kill Stephens but I think he won't need to long to make him tap.

He might be good enough but I don't think that he will. Stephens has been working on his BJJ recently with Hermes Franca and a few others. I think a big KO via slam is in order here.
