Rodolfo Vieira vs Cody Brundage 4/29/2023 Predictions, Picks and Odds

It is expected that Brundage will use a sprawl-and-brawl strategy to avoid engaging with Vieira on the floor, but his performance against Michal Oleksiejczuk showed that he struggled when fighting from his back. Given that Vieira is a world-class black belt and Brundage lacks polish, Vieira is likely to come out on top in this match.
