Rodolfo Vieira vs. Armen Petrosyan off UFC Sao Paulo

Rodolfo Vieira and Armen Petrosyan won’t be fighting in Brazil on Saturday.

Prior to the beginning of the main card broadcast of UFC Sao Paulo, it was announced that Petrosyan has been forced out of his scheduled middleweight bout with Vieira due to an illness. The nature of Petrosyan’s illness is not known, nor was it stated if the bout will be rescheduled for a later date.

A 165-pound catchweight bout between Elves Brener and Kaynan Kruschewsky originally scheduled to close out the preliminaries now kicks off the main card.

Vieira entered Saturday’s event with a 4-2 record inside the octagon, looking to get a win streak going after a submission of Cody Brundage this past April. The Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace has secured eight of his nine career wins by way of submission.

Petrosyan sports a 3-1 UFC record and is coming off of back-to-back decision wins over Christian Leroy Duncan and AJ Dobson.
