Ferreira made his promotional debut against Vladimir Matyushenko on November 13, 2010 at UFC 122, losing via first round TKO.
Ferreira was expected to face Rousimar Palhares on March 3, 2011 at UFC Live: Sanchez vs. Kampmann. However on January 18, Ferreira was dismissed from Chute Boxe, his home training camp, for a "lack of commitment." Less than an hour later, it was reported that the fight had been cancelled due to Ferreira losing family and friends in the Brazilian floods, resulting in him being in "no condition to train or fight." Palhares faced David Branch.
Ferreira/Palhares was expected to take place on August 27, 2011 at UFC 134. However, Ferreira was released from the organization and replaced by Dan Miller.
