Heavyweight Rematch Set to Headline UFC Ultimate Fight Night 51 in Brazil


What happens when a Pitbull faces a Big Foot?

For a second time.

The pair’s rematch will headline UFC Fight Night 51 in Brazil on September 13th.

The Former UFC Heavyweight Champion, Andrei Arlovski (22-10) faced off against the Former UFC Heavyweight Number 1 contender, and Former Cage Rage, Cage Warriors and Elite XC Heavyweight Champion, Antonio Silva (18-5) before.

Bigfoot outpointed and dominated to win a unanimous decision in what was primarily a boxing match at Strikeforce: Heavy Atillery.

But that was 4 years ago.

Since then Bigfoot has gone 4-3-1 and most recently put on one of the most exciting heavyweight bouts ever to be seen against hard hitting, Mark Hunt.

Arlovski has gone 7-2-1 and most recently returned to the octagon and won a mundane split decision against TUF 10 runner-up, Brendan Schaub.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
