Vieira has racked up an impressive array of BJJ accolades during his grappling career, ranging from multiple IBJJF World titles, Abu Dhabi championships and ADCC gold in 2015. Joining American Top Team in 2015 to transition into MMA, “The Black Belt Hunter” has a record of 5-0 since his first professional fight in 2017.
