Andrei Arlovski and Jens PulverOne FC returns for its fifth event on Aug. 31 in the Philippines for “Pride of a Nation.” A month and a half out from the show and fights for the event are starting to leak out.

MMAWeekly.com sources on Monday revealed that former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski would square off with Sao Palelei as part of One FC 5, as well as a bout featuring former UFC lightweight champion Jens Pulver facing Eric Kelly.

Arlovski (17-9) has had a difficult time gaining traction since he left the UFC in 2008. He won his first two bouts out of the gate, but then fell into a four-fight skid that saw him lose all three fights under his Strikeforce tenure.

He has bounced back recently winning back-to-back bouts over Ray Lopez and Travis Fulton under the resurrected ProElite banner.

Palelei (17-3) is also a UFC veteran, but had only one fight in the Octagon before he was sent packing off of a loss. He returned to Australia and is currently on a seven-fight winning streak, most recently defeating Bob Sapp in May.

Having contemplated retirement when he exited the WEC, Pulver (26-16-1) has instead weathered on, going 4-3 since he left the Zuffa family. He’ll face a tough test in Kelly, who is 7-0 as a professional mixed martial artist, including two under the One FC banner and five fights in the Philippines.

One FC 5 is also expected to feature the promotional debuts of former Dream champions Shinya Aoki and Bibiano Fernandes, who both recently signed with the promotion.
