With his entrance into the UFC came a change of life for him and his family. He began traveling the world for fights and seminars, sometimes for weeks at a time. Currently Dos Anjos is living in Southern California with his wife Cristiane and their two sons, Gustavo and Rafael Filho.
He is surrounded by big names who are responsible for his performance, including Rafael Cordeiro, Roberto “Gordo” Correa, Philipe Della Monica, Jacob Harman and Nick Curson. Also, he has the support of Evolve MMA in Singapore, where he goes once a year to train with the best muay thai fighters in the world.
Very dedicated, Dos Anjos trains six days a week at Kings MMA, always looking to improve his game. Rafael is a family man and a committed Christian. He does his best to follow God in each step he takes, and dedicates his life and future to Jesus Christ.
24/7-365: I daydream about fitness. What can I do differently? What will tomorrow’s workout look like? Where can I be innovative?

Tomorrow: Strength training has changed my life this past year. Tomorrow I want to be able to help others find success in the gym.
My Max: Protein is extremely important to aid in recovery from workouts. I need an exceptional amount of protein for a gal. I love that Promax bars have substantial protein, but they taste like a candy bar. They are perfect with my afternoon tea from India!
My Bar: Around workouts and for sweet treats I will always be loyal to my lover Nutty Butter Crisp. For mid-day protein needs with fewer carbs, Honey Peanut LS!
