Andrei Arlovski matches up with Devin Cole at World Series of Fighting

Quote:


The inaugural World Series of Fighting event has added some firepower to its growing lineup, signing former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski to compete at the Nov. 3 show in Las Vegas.

"The Pitbull" will square off against recent Strikeforce fighter Devin Cole, the promotion confirmed on Tuesday.

After a rough stretch in which he lost four fights in a row, Arlovski has shown signs of resurrecting his career lately. The 33-year-old won two straight fights by knockout, and then at Aug. 31's ONE FC event in The Philippines, he appeared to make it three straight, knocking out Tim Sylvia with soccer kicks. However, the decision was ruled a no contest because the referee had not given Arlovski permission to kick a downed opponent under the promotion's "open attack rules." That rule has since been done away with.

Arlovski, who won the UFC title in 2005 and defended it twice before losing, is 17-9 with 1 no contest in his career.

Cole has a career mark of 20-9-1. Though he boasts a two-fight win streak in Strikeforce's heavyweight division, he hasn't fought since last December, and according to sources, his contract was not picked up when the promotion was bought by UFC parent company Zuffa.

The World Series of Fighting's first event will emanate from the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino and air on NBC Sports Network at 10:30 p.m. Other fighters scheduled to compete on the still-forming card are Miguel Torres, Gerald Harris and Gregor Gracie.

Can't wait to see Andrei back in the cage. Time to get back to the big leagues.

I don't see the interest in Arlovski in a main event at this stage unless it's somebody from his era. Put him against Rizzo and you would have my attention.

Good to see him back in action so quickly after beating big fat Timmy. Can't wait for him to get a win, lord knows he deserves one right now after being screwed by moronic rules.

I'm hoping he fights Sylvia again. Anyone with a brain knows he knocked Tim the hell out, but I want it made official. That and I rather like seeing Sylvia clowned.

^I thought I was alone in that sentiment.

I want to see Arlovski beat up Timmy again. What a stupid ******* rule it was that screwed him out of a 'W' on his record.
