Rodolfo Vieira Has Dropped 33lbs For His MMA Bout w/ Alexander Neufang

BJJ and ADCC World champion Rodolfo Vieira has an incoming MMA fight this weekend at Absolut Championship Berkut in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The black belt of GFTeam will be on the card of the ACB MMA 82, scheduled for Friday, March 9, in São Paulo. His opponent will be German-Serbian BJJ black belt Alexander Neufang, who has five MMA fights in his career, with three wins and two defeats. Rodolfo has a unbeaten record of two wins, both by submission (RNC and arm triangle). The Neufang fight will be his first time fighting as a middleweight, since in his two previous the Brazilian fought as a light heavyweight.


“The preparation was great,” said Rodolfo in conversation with GRACIEMAG. “I’m feeling good, I’ve trained a lot and I’m prepared to fight. The worst part was cutting the last few pounds, but I’m already 84.5kg. I can not believe I got that weight! ”

Rodolfo posted this picture on instagram. This is the lightest we’ve ever seen him:

This was Rodolfo at 94 kgs 1 month ago. He usually walks around 100kgs:
