“The Black Belt Hunter” Rodolfo Vieira | 5-0 | 6’1 185 lbs. | Age 29 | Reach 74” | Orthodox Stance | Fighting Out of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Rodolfo Vieira debuts at UFC Uruguay on August 10th, arguably the most accomplished Jiu-Jitsu player to enter MMA since Roger Gracie. “The Black Belt Hunter” is a five-time IBJJF World Champion and has an ADCC Submission Wrestling Gold Medal to boot.
Vieira transitioned to full combat in 2017 and looks like a natural already just two years into striking. The 185’er from Rio de Janeiro started his career at light heavyweight and secured three straight finishes, two submissions and a TKO via ground and pound.
Fighting as recently as two months ago, Vieira kept up his 100% finishing rate with a thoroughly impressive first-round rear-naked choke over highly touted prospect Vitaly Nemchinov (then 10-0).
“The Black Belt Hunter” now trains out of Fusion X-Cel, another Florida camp gaining attention for their results. With training partner “Jacare” Souza helping to prepare Vieira for his UFC debut this Saturday, the 29-year-old fights Oskar Piechota (11-1-1) at UFC Uruguay!
