Dante Liberato

Dante Liberato

Dante Liberato was born on September 16th 1998 in Clovis, New Mexico. As a military brat, he was fortunate to have the opportunity to live in many military communities across our country which introduced him to combat arms training and lead him to gain an appreciation for martial arts and competitive sports. He began training in Tae-Kwon-Do when he was in second grade and earned his Black Belt a few years later. Around the same time that he received his belt, he and his father watched the first UFC match between Anderson “The Spider” Silva and Chael Sonnen. Dante immediately fell in love with Mixed Martial Arts and decided at that time that he wanted nothing more than to be a UFC fighter. Dante has been training in boxing, and wrestling since middle school and then picked up Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in High School. He is blessed to have a great coaching staff and wrestling program at Pine Creek High School where he has had an opportunity to compete and learn from the best staff and wrestlers in the State of Colorado. In Colorado Springs he is thrilled to be a member of Prime Jiu Jitsu Center, Underground and Pariah MMA. In the last 18 months, with the training and support of these great teams, Dante have been very lucky to participate in the World Open where he took first in his absolute division and 3rd in the men’s absolute division. He also competed at the National Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Championships where he took first, the NAGA Utah where he placed first in the expert division and lastly he won a Bronze Medal at the International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation Pan-Ams, which put him in the top three of the Americas. Dante is a young Born Primitive athlete, but we are excited to see where his strength and determination for success lands him. “Someone once told me not to bite off more than I could chew. I told them I’d rather choke on greatness then nibble on average.”
