Rodolfo Vieira vs. Armen Petrosyan rebooked for Feb. 10 UFC event

UFC middleweights Rodolfo Vieira and Armen Petrosyan will finally face off Feb. 10 in Las Vegas, multiple people with knowledge of the situation confirmed to MMA Fighting.

The UFC Vegas card will be headlined by Jack Hermansson vs. Joe Pyfer at the UFC APEX.

Vieira and Petrosyan were originally slated to meet at UFC Sao Paulo on Nov. 4, but the Russian-Armenian athlete was pulled from the card during the event in Brazil after feeling ill.

Petrosyan (8-2) has won three of four under the UFC banner and looks for his third straight victory after a pair of decisions over AJ Dobson and Christian Leroy Duncan. His sole defeat came in a decision to Caio Borralho in July 2022.

Vieira (9-2) has bounced between wins and losses since his 2-0 start in the organization. The jiu-jitsu legend collected two $50,000 performance bonus in most recent two wins, the latest being a second-round submission over Cody Brundage in April.
