The fighter has yet to go to trial for his action, but if he is convicted of international drug trafficking, then he could receive anywhere from four to ten years in prison.

This is not the first time the fighter has been in trouble, as Ramos was involved in a riot at a soccer stadium in 2009. The fighter would be booted out of a gym ran by Mauricio and Murilo Rua for his actions, but he changed his ways and was invited back to the gym a year later.

Ramos currently sports a 10-3-0 record as a professional MMA fighter, with his last fight being a first round submission win over Wesley Oliveira at Aspera Fighting Championships 35 in April 2016. The fighter has also spent some time competing in other promotions like the Brazilian Fighting League and M-1 Challenge as well.
