Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski Headed To ONE: FC

Andrei Arlovski will lock horns with Soa Palelei in the Philippines in August, as the former UFC heavyweight champion competes for ONE: Fighting Championship.

Arlovski and Palelei will be joined by a reported Jens Pulver-Eric Kelly contest on August 31 from Manila. The fights were recently confirmed by James Goyder on his Twitter page.

Arlovski has won each of his last two fights since a rough go in Strikeforce. Palalei is 17-3 in his career and has competed for both the UFC and PRIDE.

ONE: FC is the top fighting promotion in all of Asia. They have continued to grow, signing several top prospects and some of the bigger names from the past.
