Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski Returning to the Octagon
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 04.24.2014



Per the Twitter account of UFC President Dana White, former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski has re-signed with the company. You can check out White's tweet below.




MMAjunkie reports that per a source close to negotiations, Arlovski was released from his contract with World Series of Fighting. He's reportedly being targeted for a UFC 174 fight against Brendan Schaub.

Arlovski, a former UFC heavyweight champion, last fought in the Octagon over six years ago in March 2008. He defeated Jake O'Brien by knockout in the second round. After leaving the UFC, he went on to knock out both Roy Nelson and Ben Rothwell, two fighters currently signed to UFC's heavyweight roster. From 2009 to 2011, Arlovski went on a significant slump. He lost four fights in a row, three of which were by knockout. In his last eight fights, he's 6-1 with 1 fight being ruled a No Contest after using a kick to Tim Sylvia while he was on the ground in their ONE FC bout. The use of soccer kicks was legal; however, Arlovski was not cleared by the referee to use the kick.
