Former Cage Warriors champ Christian Leroy Duncan gets second UFC test, fights Armen Petrosyan

Former Cage Warriors champion Christian Leroy Duncan has his second UFC fight. He’ll take on Armen Petrosyan.

The middleweight bout is scheduled for the UFC on ESPN 46 card June 17 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. Two people with knowledge of the matchup recently informed MMA Junkie of the booking but asked to remain anonymous because the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.

Duncan (8-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) made his highly-anticipated promotional debut at UFC 286. The bout ended in disappointing fashion after Dusko Todorovic suffered a fight-ending knee injury. Duncan was declared the winner by TKO just 92 seconds into the bout.

Petrosyan (7-2 MMA, 2-1 UFC) most recently competed in October when he defeated AJ Dobson by unanimous decision. The victory came on the heels of a split decision win over Gregory Rodrigues and a unanimous decision loss to Caio Borralho.

With the addition, the UFC on ESPN 46 lineup for June 17 includes:

  • Jared Cannonier vs. Marvin Vettori

  • Joaquim Silva vs. Arman Tsarukyan

  • Raoni Barcelos vs. Miles Johns

  • Alessandro Costa vs. Jimmy Flick
