Vinny Magalhaes has been on the limelight for some time now. After moving to the US from his native Brazil, Vinny exploded in popularity with his appearance in The Ultimate Fighter program. His great performances up until the setback in the finals of TUF against Ryan Bader. Vinny was highly regarded by many, including UFC Kingmaker Dana White as having the best BJJ for MMA.
