LAS VEGAS – Embellished grappling world champion Rodolfo Vieira had a sense he was going to win by submission in his return to the octagon.

Vieira (10-2 MMA, 5-2 UFC) bought his hand raised Saturday on the primary card of UFC Fight Night 236 on the UFC Apex in Las Vegas after he submitted Armen Petrosyan (8-3 MMA, 3-2 UFC) with an arm-triangle choke in the first round of their middleweight contest – one thing he noticed coming.

“I’m feeling nice with this victory, with another end,” Vieira instructed reporters on the UFC Struggle Evening 236 post-fight press convention. “I knew that he was a high-level striker, however he had a whole lot of (holes) in his floor sport. I knew if I put him down, I might end him.”

Not a lot stunned Vieira when it got here right down to face Petrosyan. Nonetheless, the calf kicks Petrosyan threw did throw a small wrench into the combat.

“I wasn’t anticipating the calf kicks,” Vieira mentioned. “He harm me. I believe he hit me like three or 4 instances. On the time, once I was preventing, I didn’t really feel something, however now I’m hurting. Nevertheless it doesn’t matter. After the kicks, I took him down, and I completed him, and that’s what issues to me.”
