Rodolfo Vieira submits Oskar Piechota at UFC Uruguay.
The two fighters met in a middleweight bout at the UFC Uruguay event from the Antel Arena in Montevideo, Uruguay on ESPN+. After Vieira controlling the pace of the fight with his takedowns in the first two rounds, it became clear that it was just a matter of time.
In the second round, Vieira locks in a textbook arm-triangle and eventually forces the tap.
