Starting of my quick look at the first time UFC fighters who are debuting at #UFCBrooklyn with Vinicius Alves Moreira:

Age 29
6'4"
205lbs
Moreira (9-1) earned his way to the Octagon by Triangling John Allan Arte (12-5) in Brazil's DWTNCS.

He's a submission guy with 8 of his wins coming via taps. His defeated opponents had a combined record of 52-28 65% with 6 first round submissions. Impressive!
Here he is early in his career.

Moreira is a currently a 2-1 underdog for good reason. He's in against a very explosive striking prospect who's got a fair amount of hype behind him. A few things working in ' Moreira's favor:
- Moreira has faced good competition up to this point in his career and been very successful, even overcoming adversity at times.
- If he can survive the early aggression of Menifield he'll have a great chance to cinch up a choke later in the fight as fatigue sets in.
On the other hand:
- Menifield is certainly the best fighter Moreira has faced. He's skilled and physically imposing.
- Moreira must get this fight to the ground before taking heavy damage. Few submission specialists in today's MMA are good at that, especially early on.
Most MMA bettors think this fight won't go the distance... and favors Moreira if he can survive round 1. Could be an excellent opportunity for an ITD prop bet.
