Carvalho has been an up-and-coming fighter in Bellator. He still has a lot to prove, but he has shown signs of a promising career. If he can manage to win against Pitbull, this would greatly benefit his resume and confidence.

He has been able to fight well on the ground, but his stand up is a little weak compared to a knockout artist.
