'Tied' by Paulo, Jackson is one of those responsible for the dissemination of mixed martial arts in the 2000s. Throughout his career in the sport, the North American nurtured a great rivalry with the legendary Wanderlei Silva, having faced the Brazilian on four occasions, with two victories for each side.

Focused on regaining his status as a title challenger, Borrachinha is preparing for his second challenge in 2024. In February, after a hiatus of more than a year in his career, the Minas Gerais native experienced a battle with Robert whittaker and ended up being beaten by the former middleweight champion in the judges' decision.
