This fight will show how good Vitor Petrino is. He must combine the new things he has learned to bring victory back to Brazil with confidence.
Bukauskas knows how to avoid the danger of a punch because he moves actively. However, Petrino is so explosive with his punches that he closes the distance quickly, making it hard for Bukauskas to hit.

If Petrino doesn't find success standing, he will use his new wrestling and grappling skills to find his way to victory here.
The market overreacts when an MMA fighter has only won in the UFC cage. However, the artificial intelligence model still believes value can be extracted from the current betting line.
Currently, betting companies are offering odds of 1.43 for Vitor Petrino to win this fight. With a 74% probability of winning, our bet is worth 6%, so there is value in betting.
The other option is to wait for the odds to go up, but this is only likely to happen when the fight starts and then take the higher value from this UFC fight.
Vitor Petrino (9-0):
Vitor Petrino has a background in Capoeira, Taekwondo, and Muay Thai. At 26 years old, he is still a young fighter and has not yet reached his athletic peak. He had his first professional MMA fight in 2019 and hasn't looked back since.
Every time we see him in the UFC cage, he adds a new offensive arsenal to his MMA game. The hard-hitting knockout specialist showed this in his last fights against Anton Turkal and Marcin Prachnio, revealing his improving wrestling and grappling skills.
He won these two fights on points and in the 3rd round. With this development, we certainly have yet to see his best performance.
Explosive athleticism and strength. An athlete who develops very quickly.
His activity can slow down considerably in fights that require wrestling and/or grappling. Sometimes, he uses more strength than technique.
Modestas Bukauskas (15-5):
Bukauskas has a background in kickboxing, which led him to win the Cage Warriors title. By being very active on the outside and circling away from his opponent, he often avoids severe strikes.
He already has 6 UFC fights and “veteran” status, but after a triumphant debut in which he lost three fights in a row, he has taken a bit of a detour. He then returned to Cage Warriors, winning two fights before returning to the UFC.
Since then, he has won 2 fights under his new UFC contract against Tyson Pedro and Zac Pauga.
He is only 29 years old, so he has a lot of potential to perform at the top level, but he needs to keep improving, so it's hard for me to see him reaching the top.
Good and active movement, strong cardio fitness.
He often reacts poorly to hits and has difficulty transitioning to attack.
