Andrei Arlovski returns at UFC Fight Night 120 against Brazilian prospect Junior Albini

Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski will be back in action when he takes on rising prospect Junior Albini at UFC Fight Night 120 on Nov. 11 live on FOX Sports 1 from inside Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Va., per a recent announcement by the promotion.

Arlovski, 38, is currently riding a career-worst five-fight losing streak, including a recent decision loss to Marcin Tybura back in June. The UFC veteran last tasted an Octagon victory when he defeated Frank Mir via unanimous decision at UFC 191. If Arlovski isn’t able to get past a youngster like Albini he may be the next name on the UFC chopping block.

Albini, 26, made a huge promotional debut when he knocked out veteran heavyweight Timothy Johnson in just three minutes at UFC on FOX 25 this past July. The up-and-coming Brazilian is on a 10-fight win streak, including eight finishes, and could make a huge divisional splash if he can overthrow a proven vet like “Pit Bull.”

UFC Fight Night 120 will be headlined by a lightweight showdown between divisional staple Dustin Poirier and former 155-pound champion Anthony Pettis, and also feature a welterweight clash pitting UFC veteran Diego Sanchez against fan favorite Matt Brown.

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

In what can only been seen as another nakedly obvious attempt to make the odds for this ridiculous McGregor fight even closer than they are, Mayweather stated that he is partying all through fight week until next Monday.

Come hang out with me tonight at “GIRL COLLECTION” and ask me anything you want, live & in person! Starting tonight Thursday August 17th all the way through Monday Aug. 28th I’ll be at the one and only “GIRL COLLECTION” meeting & greeting my fans!

“That’s right… I’m partying the entire week before my fight all the way through to next Monday following my fight ONLY AT “GIRL COLLECTION!!!! Bring you friends & meet me there! #FightWeek – @FloydMayweather


Insomnia

Francis NGannou is angry. I would not want to be someone Francis NGannou is angry at. Suffering through the rigors, privations, and hard knocks of a training camp makes you mean for a fight. Right when he was peaking out the intensity, he found out his opponent, former heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos, has been pulled from the bout due to a USADA violation. I would be angry too.

The UFC roster has swelled lately

If you want your rap video featured in Midnight Mania, hit me up on Twitter. I actually enjoyed this for some reason. Both fighters’ trash talk lines fit seamlessly into a rap video.

I could probably use one of these

This egregious matchup shouldn’t be sanctioned, and those around Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva should convince him to find another career. He’s taken way too much damage late in his career.


Slips, Rips, and Knockout Clips

It’s Friday, so there are a lot of knockouts today. Enjoy them!

This is a crazy bicycle kick. Not sure I’ve ever seen that one land before.

Great left hook

No, that’s not quite the Silva-Fryklund elbow. More like a Matt Brown elbow. Still pretty cool though

Nothing like a little rain in the cage

Roy Jones Jr. in his prime was fighter unique in his skill set and approach to boxing

You have to love old school heavyweights

Ramon Dekkers was a brutality machine in the ring

I believe in body punches

This was a surprising upset for ONE

Nguyen had to escape from several bad positions to land the above knockout

Another angle

Nice right hand
