Fernando Kallas


Multitask and versatile journalist based in Spain, with experience working from int'l correspondent in the Middle East to sports announcer in Brazil.

I am one of the official UFC play-by-play commentators in Brazil and the host of Radio PVT Brazil's first MMA radio show, at the Portal do Vale Tudo, with my partners Marcelo Alonso and Gleidson Venga.

As a sports journalist I covered international events like the UEFA Champions League (including the 2005 Final), ATP Tennis, UFC and World Judo Championships.

I'm a big fan of Soccer, American Football and Martial Arts and I try to go to as many La Liga, UEFA Champions and Europa Leagues matches as I can.

If we are talking about soccer, my favorite teams are Botafogo FR (Brazil) and Atletico de Madrid (Spain), but I'm also a big fan of the San Francisco 49ers when it comes to American Football.

I'm a proud practitioner of Martial Arts since 5 years old, doing Judo for 10 years, Taekwondo for 5 and being part of the Carlson Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu School tree in Rio de Janeiro.
