VFD SPORTS ANNOUNCES SIGNING OF THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER CHAMPION DIEGO BRANDAO

May 11, 2012

VFD Sports announced the addition of the newest member to their athlete roster, The Ultimate Fighter season 14 winner Diego Brandao.  The featherweight fighter is one of the most promising young guns in the UFC and he is looking to build off of his TUF success when he fights in UFC 146 in Las Vegas on May 26th.

 

Going from The Ultimate Fighter champion to UFC champion is a tough path to take, but it's been done multiple times in the past and Brandao is looking to follow in these footsteps.  The Brazilian is known for wearing his heart on his sleeve, as he is one of the most emotional fighters in the UFC.  He uses this to his advantage as he has the power to deliver devastating knockouts as well as the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu experience to submit anyone.

 

VFD Sports partners John Fosco & Elie Deshe issued the following statement: "We are very excited to welcome Diego Brandao to our team.  We feel that he will be the next champion at 145 pounds and will be a mainstay of the UFC for years to come."

 

Brandao is currently training at Jackson-Winkeljohn MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico with many other VFD Sports athletes, such as Clay Guida, Donald Cerrone, Travis Browne, Leonard Garcia, and Bart Palaszewski.
