Two-time Costa Rican Brazilian jiu-jitsu National Champion Ariel Sexton grew up in Costa Rica, and was an extremely athletic child who first began training in BJJ back in 2001.
He soon fell in love with martial arts, and decided to quit his job to become a full-time professional martial artist. Sexton went on to earn his BJJ black belt under the famed Renzo Gracie, and established himself as the best mixed martial artist Costa Rica has ever produced.
After great success competing aroud South America, Sexton broadened his horizons to Asia, and defeated Malaysian superstar Peter Davis at the MIMMA Season 1 Finale in 2013. This caught the attention of ONE Championship, and since joining the organization’s stacked lightweight roster, the man they call “Tarzan” has defeated standouts the likes of Eddie Ng and Roger Huerta to establish himself as a top talent to watch.
