He has plenty of different wins on his resumes, with 11 that have been awarded for eight knockouts, one submission, one decision, and one by other. He has nine resulting in first round finishes and one loss by each category.

"Angelo Veneziano" is making his debut in the UFC and has a tough opponent on a big stage. He has also moved around quite a bit over the years, but has primarily found success at the Venator Fighting Championship (4-1).

He has earned a ranking of the 33rd best professional featherweight in Eastern Europe. He has a great opportunity to make a good impression, especially in front of a home crowd.
