Rodolfo Vieira reportedly signs with the UFC

The former ADCC champ and 5-0 MMA fighter Rodolfo Vieira is reportedly set to make his UFC debut.

With four submission wins and one knockout, Vieira is surely looking to make a splash in his octagon debut at UFC Fight Night 156 in Uruguay. Vieira will be fighting Oskar Piechota, who has a bit more experience with a record of 11-1-1.

Vieira has been active as recently as last week, tapping the Russian Vitaliy Nemchinov at ACA 96.

Piechota is coming off a devastating loss wherein he was put to sleep by Gerald Meerschaert at the TUF 27 finale. With over a year off, Piechota will look to prove he still has what it takes to step inside the octagon.

UFC Fight Night 156 takes place on August 10 at the Antel Arena in Montevideo, Uruguay.
