This. This is good. Bigfoot is returning from his drug-induced break from MMA, Arlovski is returning to greatness… I think. He beat Brendan Schaub in a weird fight last month, and realistically, with a win or two in the heavyweight division, AA could be working towards a title shot.
Seriously. Think about that. #2014.
Here’s the Portuguese translation of the announcement from Globo:
The fight will be a rematch of the May 15, 2010 fight when the two faced off at Strikeforce day. On that occasion, the Brazilian won by unanimous decision.
Bigfoot’s suspension for doping, which occurred after the draw with Mark Hunt, will be terminated days before the event in Brasilia, meaning he will be free to fight on the 13th. At 34, the Brazilian has a record of 18 wins, five defeats, and one draw.
The Belarusian Andrei Arlovski is 35 years old and has a record of 22 wins, ten losses and one No Contest. He recently returned to the UFC, where she was champion, after a six years absence, and defeated Brendan Schaub in a controversial decision.
