On 5-fight skid, ex-champ Andrei Arlovski set for UFC Fight Night 120 bout vs. Junior Albini


A heavyweight bout between former UFC champion Andrei Arlovski and Junior Albini is the latest addition to November’s UFC Fight Night 120 lineup.

UFC officials today announced the bout between Arlovski (25-15 MMA, 14-9 UFC) and Albini (14-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC).

UFC Fight Night 120 takes place Nov. 11 at Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Va. The event airs on FS1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass, though the bout order hasn’t been finalized.

Arlovski, an honorable mention in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA heavyweight rankings, will attempt to snap a five-fight losing skid in the upcoming fight. Although the majority of his defeats in that stretch have come against the likes of Stipe Miocic, Alistair Overeem, Josh Barnett and Francis Ngannou, the former UFC titleholder is coming off a unanimous decision loss to a lesser-known foe in Marcin Tybura at UFC Fight Night 111 in June.

Albini, meanwhile, will get a chance to add a marquee name to his resume in just his second octagon appearance. The 26-year-old Brazilian made his UFC debut in July, earning a first-round TKO against Timothy Johnson at UFC on FOX 25.

The latest UFC Fight Night 120 card now includes:

  • Anthony Pettis vs. Dustin Poirier
  • Matt Brown vs. Diego Sanchez
  • Nina Ansaroff vs. Angela Hill
  • Cezar Ferreira vs. Nate Marquardt
  • Karl Roberson vs. Darren Stewart
  • Jake Collier vs. Marcel Fortuna
  • Junior Albini vs. Andrei Arlovski
