UFC Vegas 29: Wellington Turman vs Bruno Silva

Turman is 1-2 in his UFC run thus far and has already faced some stiff competition in the promotion. He was KO’ed in his last fight by Andrew Sanchez and displayed some defensive inadequacies that cost him dearly in the contest. He’ll want to get right back on track with a win over a newcomer who has a dangerous profile.

Wellington Turman is a fundamentalist on the ground and in the striking department. He prefers to keep things simple and often finds success over the course of 15 minutes. Almost half of his pro wins have come via submission and he’s well equipped with RNC’s submission as well as Guillotine’s.

Bruno Silva comes into the UFC riding a 4 fight win streak and he is more experienced than Turman as a professional. He’s bounced around several organizations, racking up an impressive 19-6 record on route to the UFC. With four straight KO/TKO wins to his name, the Brazilian will be confident that the odds are heavily in his favor.
