UFC Fight Night Arlovski vs. Bigfoot II went down in Brasilia Brazil tonight and didn’t disappoint. The main event saw former UFC Champion and as of the last few years MMA journeyman Andrei Arlovski beat Antonio Bigfoot Silva by resounding knockout in the first round of the event.
Arlovski looked on point, and went after Bigfoot like a, wait for it, PITBULL, recapturing some of the old glory he had as a younger UFC fighter and King of the Heavyweight division way back when.
As it stands, Arlovski, who is ranked #14 heavyweight in the world, has now beaten Antonio Silva, who himself was ranked #4. Where does that put these guys, and what’s next for either fighter? Does Arlovski earn a shot at JDS or do you guys think he should be the one to send former Pride and Strikeforce dud Alistair Overeem into MMA retirement for good?
Bigfoot has had his ups and downs over the years, but just in my opinion, with TRT being banned and his medical condition getting worse with age, I would say one more fight to show he can still do it off the chemicals, and if not, time to hang it up.
Overall it was a great event and you might still be able to catch the replay on tv or on BT sport 1 live stream.
