Improves to 3-1 in past four fights
HeavyweightUFC
October 16, 2021
Arlovski defeated Carlos Felipe via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Arlovski continues to chug along, somehow posting a 3-1 mark in his past four fights despite the fact he will be turning 43 years of age in early-February. The days of Arlovski overwhelming his opposition on the feet are long gone, but the UFC has been exceedingly careful regarding who they have matched him up against, and it's led to positive results. He and Felipe fought to virtually even terms the entirety of the bout. Arlovski struggles whenever he is forced to move his feet and get his head off the center line, but Felipe didn't make him do that on a consistent basis. There's an overwhelming likelihood Arlovski's next four fights won't go anywhere near as well as his prior four, but the fact he is still with the company and having success is a minor miracle considering his advanced age and he fact he posted a 1-4 (1NC) record during a six-fight streak from June 2018 to November 2019.

Grinds past Chase Sherman
HeavyweightUFC
April 17, 2021
Arlovski defeated Chase Sherman via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It's rarely pretty, but the 42-year-old Arlovski now has 20 UFC victories under his belt. This one certainly didn't come easy, as "The Pit Bull" had to survive an early onslaught from Sherman. Arlovski's success these days is entirely tied to the fact of whether or not his chin holds up. He doesn't move anywhere near as well as he used to, although he is still capable of stringing together some combinations if his opponent is foolish enough to engage him in a pure kickboxing match. Arlovski moves above the .500 mark (4-3) dating back to April 2019, which is pretty amazing considering his advanced age and how many fights he has been in over the years.
