Featherweights Melsik Baghadaryan and TJ Laramie are back in the UFC schedule. The fighters have been matched for UFC’s April 16th card, per an announcement made by the promotion recently.
The fight has joined a card that doesn’t have a confirmed location at the moment.
Laramie and Baghdasaryan were originally scheduled to fight at UFC 268 in November. However, that booking was later scrapped after Laramie suffered an injury.
Baghdasaryan is now meeting Laramie after winning his first two UFC appearances.
Baghdasaryan won his UFC debut in July 2021, stopping Collin Anglin in the second round of a fight. He later fought short-notice opponent Bruno Souza at UFC 268, defeating him via unanimous decision.
Laramie lost his UFC debut last year, getting submitted within a minute by Darrick Minner.
