Andrei Arlovski and Tim Sylvia Meet for the Fourth Time at One FC 5

Quote:
Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski is slated to make his One FC debut at the promotion’s “Pride of a Nation” event on Aug. 31 in the Philippines.

It will come against a different opponent than originally expected, however. Arlovski was expected to square off with Sao Palelei at One FC 5, but a recent shifting of gears now has him facing fellow former UFC champion Tim Sylvia, according to MMAWeekly.com sources.

Arlovski (17-9) has had a rough go of it since exiting the UFC in 2008. He started off by winning back-to-back bouts, but then embarked on a four-fight skid that left him searching. He has since rebounded with two recent victories before signing with One FC.

Arlovski was originally set to face Palelei, but the Australian tweeted that he would no longer be facing Arlovski because One FC wanted him to sign a five-fight contract and he refused.

In enters Tim Sylvia.

Sylvia (31-7) was recently in talks to face Daniel Cormier, but that fell apart when Strikeforce decided to put Cormier against another former UFC heavyweight champion in Frank Mir.

Now, Sylvia will head overseas for a fourth fight with Arlovski. Sylvia lost their first bout, but won back-to-back fights against the Belarusian at UFC 59 and UFC 61.

Sylvia is currently in the midst of a three-fight winning streak and has won seven of his last eight bouts.

Arlovski and Sylvia will fight on the One FC 5: Pride of a Nation fight card on Aug. 31 in Quezon City, Philippines.

I'm afraid Timmeh is taking this. It was only a 1,5 year ago when Sylvia got destroyed by the animal, the beast in Abe Wagner though.

I see it already. If he beats Timber...then he might get asked back to the UFC. You know if you think about it...if Andrei had a chin he would be one helluve fighter to watch. He's one of the few HWs who throws combinations next to JDS. Most just throw one or two shots like Kongo, Hunt, even Mirko in his later years unless he's going for the kill, and pretty much the rest of em.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Was a massive AA fan, still am 1 but over the years it got more frustrating watching him he didnt seem to correct the mistakes he made before and it was harder to view his fights or find out when.. il def be watching this though, if AA comes in with chesthair/longhair/fangs it will be a repeat of the first bout!!!, and the beast would have returned (most probably not)

I'm actually excited for this fight.

Two guys who aren't realistically doing anything for MMA at this point or in the future fighting for the 4th time, they have a history, and I'd love to see another KO.

If Andrei Arlovski had a solid chin, there is no doubt in my mind that he would be a top-five Heavyweight.

I'm actually very interested in this fight, hopefully we'll see Arlovski come out on top.

But theres history to this fight!! lol has there been a semi high profile + fight thats reached 4? cant remember what Tito and Shamrock got to.

Aswell as his chin i think he has hideous timing issues or concentration, or confidence or hunger or whatever.. who knows hes a prime athlete and looked scary good when he went on a streak. Glad to know im not the only 1 looking forward to this.
