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.

First submission loss since 2016
HeavyweightUFC
February 20, 2021
Arlovski lost to Tom Aspinall via submission (rear-naked choke) at 1:09 of Round 2 at UFC Vegas 19 on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Arlovski was able to weather the early storm of Aspinall in Round 1 but couldn't stuff Aspinall's takedown in the early part of the second round, which led to the rear-naked choke finish. Arlovski had not lost via submission since September 2016. It is unknown what Arlovski's status with the UFC will be after this fight.
Taking on Tom Aspinall
HeavyweightUFC
January 5, 2021
Arlovski will face Tom Aspinall in a heavyweight matchup scheduled for Feb. 20.
ANALYSIS
The 41-year-old's form has somewhat surprisingly seen his form take a turn for the better at the tail end of his career. He's won three of his last four matches following a stretch in which he'd won just two of his previous 11. In Aspinall, he'll face a fighter 14 years his junior who's fought just twice under the UFC banner, winning first-round TKO victories both times. Arlovski is likely to enter as a massive underdog for this matchup with his career winding down to a close. The up-and-comer represents a significant jump in quality of opponent compared to his last few fights.
