UFC Fight Night 138. Prior, he also lost via decision to former
welterweight championship contender Darren Till.
So far, the only victory of “Abacus” under the UFC banner came when

Vendramini (8-1) has yet to score his first UFC victory. “The
Italian Stallion” made his promotional debut when he stepped up to
