Mixed martial arts career

In 2009 Carvalho-Gomes defeated Film actor and PRIDE Fighting Championships veteran Jean-François Lénogue to win the WFC Middleweight Championship after Lénogue was put in a rear naked choke and refused to tap, later falling unconscious from the submission.

In 2010, Bruno had a fight against the middleweight champion for Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki, Portuguese fighter Vitor Nobrega, a fight where both men would fight about their respective belts. Bruno won the fight successfully but in a last minute decision from Nobregas management, they decided not to bring their belt.

Bruno was scheduled to fight Robert Jocz on November 27, but due to Jocz withdrawal, Tomasz Kondraciuk replaced him instead.

Bruno had his first Superior Challenge fight against former The Ultimate Fighter competitor Kyacey Uscola in a bout Bruno won after Uscola verbally instructed the referee to stop the fight after being put in a kimura.
