Alexandre "Xandinho" Izidro (born February 18, 1979 in Niterói) is a Brazilian mixed martial artist. He started to train in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at age 14 and got his black belt at age 20. He is a member of Brazilian Top Team and competes in the Lightweight division. He is a former Cage Warriors Lightweight World Champion.
Student of Ze Marcello, one of Murilo Bustamante's black belts, the Niteroi native Alexandre "Xandinho" Izidro entered the Mixed Martial Arts world almost accidentally. He debuted at in 2003 at Shooto Brazil 2 and then trained hard to get a unanimous decision over a kickboxing champion at Shooto Brazil 3.
With little experience in Mixed Martial Arts, Xandinho did not have many opportunities of fighting in Brazil again, so he took advantage of an opportunity to move to UK. Sharing his time between teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and fighting Mixed Martial Arts, Xandinho became the Cage Warriors World Lightweight champion.
Three years later, in 2007, he moved again, this time to Hong Kong, where he splits his time teaching his students at BTT HK (Brazilian Top Team) and training for his next Mixed Martial Arts fights. Xandinho is a member of the famous Brazilian Top Team http://www.braziliantopteam.com.
