Good Vito Earns Pro Card

The competition took place over the weekend and was full of elite competition. Good Vito stood out above the rest using his incredible physique. This is what made him a social media sensation over the course of his career.

In the final round, Ugolnikov was able to defeat Gustavo Bico, the champion in a lower weight class, to win the overall title and earn his Pro Card.
