Hired by Ultimate in 2020, Kape only managed to debut in the organization the following year, after seeing the duels with Rogerio Bonorin e Alexandre pantoja be cancelled. After four fights, with two wins and two losses, the Angolan saw five more of his commitments postponed and stepped into the Octagon only twice between 2022 and 2023.


In the current season, “Starboy” has already been cast against Matheus Nicolau on two occasions, in January and April, and both fell due to problems on his part (failure to weigh in and now injury). It is worth remembering that not all the cancellations were the Angolan's fault, but it is worth noting that luck has not accompanied his time in the largest MMA organization in the world.
