10 Light Heavyweight Prospects the UFC Should Sign in 2022

Rodolfo “Trator” Bellato

25 | 6’3″ | Sorocaba, Sao Paulo, Brazil | 7-1 | 100% finish rate | 4 KO/TKOs, 3 Submission’s (RNC, Armbar, Kneebar) | Combined Opponents’ Record: 12-7 | Best Win – Carlos Eduardo (5-1) 

A member of Team Nogueira, Rodolfo Bellato made a strong impression in his LFA debut last July. Bellato has been a training partner of the Nogueira brothers for a number of years and has cornered them in the UFC before. His only loss came in 2019 and that was to Vitor Petrino who is mentioned on this list above.

Along with competing in various jiu-jitsu competitions, with many medals won, he’s also competed in kickboxing — most notably for WGP. Being well-versed in all areas Bellato is primarily a jiu-jitsu guy that will smash your face in with brutal ground and pound. A huge submission threat as well, as all three of his subs are by a different type of lock.
