Bigfoot vs. Arlovski Possible For UFC Fight Night 51

A heavyweight face off pinning former UFC champion, Andrei Arlovski against Antonio “Big Foot” Silva was revealed today as a possible fight for the UFC Fight Night 51 card set for September 13th in Brasilia, Brazil.

According to sources verbal agreements are in place for both fighters. A UFC official could not immediately confirm the bout.

Arlovski returned to the UFC for the first time in more than six years in June and took a somewhat controversial split decision from Brendan Schaub at UFC 174, giving him three wins in a row and five of his past six. Silva most recently fought this past December in a “Fight of the Year” candidate against Mark Hunt at UFC Fight Night 33 in Australia. The fight ended in a majority draw, but was overturned to a no-contest after Silva tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone and was suspended by the UFC for nine months.
