Recent addition to the Xtreme Couture team, Jiu-Jitsu ace Vinicius “Vinny” Magalhaes will be taking on wrestling standout Ryan Bader this Saturday night in the light heavyweight final of this season’s Ultimate Fighter tournament. Vinny earned his spot in the final with submission wins over housemates Jules Bruchez and Krzysztof Soszynski.
Since filming wrapped, he has been putting in long hours here at Xtreme Couture training alongside the likes of Forrest Griffin, Wanderlei Silva, and Mike Whitehead to round out his skillset with drastically improved striking and wrestling to complement his already world-class jiu-jitsu.
With the hard work behind him, Vinny is looking to ride the momentum of his current win streak to a dominant victory. He will have the full support of his new team behind him on Saturday night.
