In his next match, Andrei Arlovski will face a formidable opponent from Brazil.
Michael Arlovski (34-20 MMA, 23-14 UFC) is set to fight in Las Vegas on Oct. 29 against Marcos Rogerio de Lima, who is 19-8-1 MMA and 8-6 UFC.
After Combate first reported the story, Arlovski took to social media to corroborate it.
A four-fight victory streak for Arlovski is the greatest run he’s had for several years. With wins over Jared Vanderaa and Jake Collier, the 43-year-old former UFC heavyweight champion is now 2-0 in 2022.
After losing by unanimous decision to Blagoy Ivanov at UFC 274, De Lima will be looking to avenge that defeat. At UFC Fight Night 197 in November 2021, “Pezao” beat Maurice Greene and submitted veteran Ben Rothwell in 32 seconds.
The UFC’s Oct. 29 program has been expanded to include:
- Edson Barboza vs. Ilia Topuria
- Andrei Arlovski vs. Marcos Rogerio de Lima
