UFC 270 Rodolfo Vieira vs. Wellington Turman Betting Information
Rodolfo Vieira came into the UFC with some hype as an undefeated fighter with a record of 5-0. ‘The Black Belt Hunter made quite an impression winning his first two bouts in the organization against Oskar Piechota and Saparbek Safarov. His first professional career loss was at the hands of Anthony Hernandez in UFC 258 and that bout ended in a guillotine choke submission. Six months later, he stepped back inside the octagon and took on Dustin Stoltzfus in UFC on ESPN 26. This Brazilian fighter from Fusion X-Cel bounced back with a submission win at the 1:54 mark of the third round.
Wellington struggled when he entered the UFC back in July 2019. Since then, the 25-year-old fighter has lost thrice in five matches. After losing back-to-back against Andrew Sanchez and Bruno Silva, Turman was able to secure his second win in the UFC but it was an unconvincing split decision against Sam Alvey in UFC on ESPN 30. This fighter comes into this match with a 17-5 record and prior to entering the UFC, most of his matches happened at Imortal FC. He has been having a hard time translating his dominance in other MMA organizations to the UFC and he looks to get his rhythm when he battles Rodolfo Vieira.
