Andre Petroski


Late replacement at UFC 267
October 18, 2021
Petroski will step in on short notice to take on Hu Yaozong in a presumed middleweight matchup at UFC 267 on Oct. 30, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Petroski looked strong in his August UFC debut against Michael Gilmore, picking up the third-round stoppage to move to 6-2-0 as a professional. He'll now draw a 26-year-old Chinese prospect who last saw UFC action in 2018 as a heavyweight. Petroski will give up three inches in height but also sports a one-inch reach advantage on paper. There are truly a wide range of potential outcomes here, but one item of note is that Petroski has yet to get the judges involved in any of his professional or exhibition fights.
