UFC 270 Tony Gravely vs. Saimon Oliveira Betting Information
Tony Gravely earned his shot to be part of the UFC roster when he won over Ray Rodriguez in Dana White’s Contender Series with a third-round knockout. His debut fight in the UFC happened in January 2020 and it was a disappointing performance leading to a submission loss over Brett Johns. Since then, he was able to bounce back by taking wins over Geraldo de Freitas Jr. and Anthony Birchak. Gravely suffered another setback as he lost to Nathan Menesses via knockout just this September 2021.

His current professional record is at 18-3 and he is a 30-year-old bantamweight fighter who stands at five-foot-eight. He has a contrasting style as he usually goes for the submission in his MMA matches. 11 of his 18 wins came from submissions while he also can throw hands having five knockout victories in his MMA career.
