Paulo borrachinha arrived in the UFC in 2017 and subsequently beat Garreth McLellan, Oluwale Bangbose, John hendricks, Uriah Hall, all by knockout, and Yoel romero. The triumph over the Cuban was the former middleweight challenger's last over an athlete ranked in the organization.


Afterwards, Borrachinha became an athlete who was rarely present in the octagon and suffered two consecutive defeats, to Israel adesanya, worth the middleweight and Marvin vettori. In August 2022, in UFC 278, Paulo scared the former champion Luke Rockhold in the unanimous decision of the judges. All the athletes defeated by the Brazilian since 2017 no longer have a contract with Ultimate.

No UFC 298, last February, Borrachinha was defeated by the former champion Robert whittaker in the judges' decision.
