Main Card

Brunno Ferreira

Brunno Ferreira (9-0) will make his debut in the UFC after having a successful stint in the independent scene. The fighter known as “The Hulk” has strung up nine consecutive wins and has yet to make a decision victory. All of his fights ended by knockout or submission, including the one-round demolition of Leon Aliu in the Dana White’s Contender Series in September. The 30-year-old will come into the octagon with a chip on his shoulder as he seeks to maintain that unbeaten record against one of the promotion’s top up and comers in Rodriguez.

Gregory Rodrigues

Known in the MMA circles as “RoboCop,” Rodrigues (13-4, 4-1 UFC) looks to secure his third straight win in the octagon and fifth in six fights. His last two fights ended early with him earning the wins via knockout over Julian Marquez in June and Chidi Njokuani in September. Gregory Rodrigues has power in his hands, as evidenced by eight KO wins in his career. He is also capable of pulling off submissions with three wins via tap out. The 30-year-old, 6-foot-3 fighter is relatively tall in his division and is one of the most interesting prospects in the middleweight class.

Ferreira vs Rodrigues Betting Picks

Sports picks and parlays give Rodrigues the underdog tag in this fight despite having the greater experience in the UFC. On the other hand, the debuting Ferreira has emerged as the favorite in this matchup due to his splendid performances in his previous bouts. Six of his fights ended by knockout and three coming via submission. Rodrigues, on the other hand, is no pushover as his last two fights ended by KO. Rodrigues needs to use his veteran smarts to outwit Ferreira, who is making his first fight in the UFC. A win for either fighter will give them opportunities to fight against top-caliber opponents in the middleweight class in the future. Both fighters have striking power in their hands so expect a fast bout between them with one winning either by knockout or submission.
