Main Card

Rodolfo Vieira

Rodolfo Vieira is known inside the MMA cage as “The Black Belt Hunter” and he is a fighter that came from Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. He stands at five-foot-eleven and trains at the Fusion X-Cel fight team. Vieira is now 31 years old and has been comfortable fighting at the middleweight division for his entire career. He has only lost once in eight professional MMA matches and six of those wins came from submissions. After winning back-to-back wins since entering the UFC roster, Vieira lost his first professional career match in UFC 258 against Anthony Hernandez. That match ended with guillotine choke submission in the second round.

Dustin Stoltzfus

Dustin Stoltzfus is just about to enter his 30s at 29 years old and his hometown is located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in the United States. He gets to represent the Frankers Fight Team in his matches. Stoltzfus is five-foot-eleven and has been competing in the middleweight division. His current professional MMA record is 13-2 and those wins are divided into five submissions, five decisions, two knockouts, and on DQ. After being discovered in Dana White’s Contender Series, Stoltzfus debuted in the UFC just this November 2020. He had a rude awakening in the UFC losing to Kyle Daukaus via unanimous decision and it snapped his 10-fight winning streak.
