UFC Fight Night is set to get going this weekend from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, April 29 at 7 p.m. ET. There is a 11-bout main card highlighted by a bantamweight fight between Yadong Song and Ricky Simon. Also notable on the main card is a heavyweight fight between Rodolfo Vieria and Cody Brundage.

Vieria (8-2) is an orthodox fighter out of Brazil, who is coming off an unanimous decision loss to Chris Curtis last June. He is a submission first competitor, as 7 of his 8 wins have come by that method. Standing at 6’0” with a 73” reach and a striking accuracy of 54%, Vieria is a lofty favorite to win at -240.

Brundage (8-3) is looking to bounce back following a loss by way of first-round KO to Michal Oleksiejczuk last December. Brundage started his UFC tenure earning two first-round stoppage wins over Dalcha Lungiambula and Tresean Gore. He stands at 6’1” with a 72” reach along with a 52% striking accuracy. His average fight time is 5:38 and he enters this bout as a +200 underdog.

Splits: 84% of handle, 29% of bets on Brundage

In a contrasting matchup of grappler versus striker, this one will certainly have fight fans on the edge of their seats. Brundage has cooled down of late, but if he sneaks in a lead punch or two he is bound to score a knockout. However, Vieria by submission (-115) seems like the likely outcome, he is too good of a wrestler.
