Draws Boser in October
HeavyweightUFC
August 2, 2020
Arlovski will take on Tanner Boser in a heavyweight matchup at a yet-to-be-determined location October 3, Aaron Bronsteter of TSN.ca reports.
ANALYSIS
Arlovski has won two of his last three fights at the age of 41, last defeating Philipe Lins in May. Boser has a win over Lins as well, finishing him in the first round back on June 27. Arlovski will have slight height and reach advantages, but considering he doesn't pose much of a knockout threat at this stage of his career, look for Boser to enter as a betting favorite.

Defeats debuting Philipe Lins
HeavyweightUFC
May 13, 2020
Arlovski defeated Philipe Lins via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Wednesday in Jacksonville.
ANALYSIS
Arlovski looked fairly strong on the heels of a 29-second knockout loss at the hands of Jair Rozenstruik last November. It was by no means a dominant effort for "The Pit Bull," but he stayed active and didn't make any major mistakes. His chin -- which has been a cause of concern over the past several years -- held up in the early going before Lins began to fade. Arlovski is well past his prime at age 41, and the results will almost certainly be negative if the UFC decides to push him against high-end competition, but his 18 victories at heavyweight are the most in company history. Arlovski has alternated wins and losses in his past four fights.
Fight with Lins pushed to May 13
HeavyweightUFC
April 27, 2020
Arlovski (28-19-0, 2 NC) is now scheduled to face Philipe Lins (14-3-0) in a heavyweight fight May 13 at the UFC Fight Night event in Jacksonville, Raphael Marinho of Combate.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The Arlovski-Lins bout was initially set to take place May 2 at UFC Oklahoma City, but that event has since been postponed due to concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. The UFC instead intends to hold at least three consecutive cards in Jacksonville, with the May 13 event coming after UFC 249 on May 9. The 41-year-old Arlovski most recently fought in November at UFC 244, losing to Jair Rozenstruik in the first round.

Arlovski will take on Philipe Lins at UFC Oklahoma City on May 2, Alexander K. Lee of MMAfighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Arlovski will be making his first appearance of 2020. He went 1-2 in fights last year, posting a unanimous decision win over Ben Rothwell and a pair of losses to Augusto Sakai and Jairzinho Rozenstruik.
Not competitive at UFC 244
HeavyweightUFC
November 2, 2019
Arlovski lost to Jairzinho Rozenstruik via KO (punch) at 0:29 of Round 1 at UFC 244 on Saturday in New York City.
ANALYSIS
There isn't much to say here. Arlovski has been a shell of his former self for years and his chin has long since evaporated. Going up against a hard-hitting power puncher like Rozenstruik is a worse-case scenario for Arlovski these days and he didn't even last 30 seconds. "The Pit Bull" has fought six times since June 2018. His record is 1-4 (1NC).
Set to face Rozenstruik on Nov. 2
HeavyweightUFC
September 11, 2019
Arlovski will face Jairzinho Rozenstruik in a heavyweight matchup at UFC 244 on Nov. 2, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The former UFC heavyweight champion is the latest addition to join UFC 244 in New York, and will bring a recognizable veteran to one of the company's biggest annual fight cards. He brings a slight bit of momentum into the cage, as he defeated Ben Rothwell via unanimous decision back in July, which snapped a four-fight winless streak. He'll now draw a fighter in Rozenstruik who is 2-0 under the UFC banner, but hasn't faced any noteworthy competition. The two measure up similarly from a physical standpoint, but Arlovski is nearly a decade younger (not a good thing). He's essentially serving as a litmus test to see whether the prospect is ready for a step up in competition.
