A huge heavyweight rematch was scheduled for UFC on ESPN 4 this upcoming July.
Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski (27-18) will be facing Ben Rothwell (36-11) on July 22 in San Antonio, US. The pair last fought at “Affliction – Banned” back in 2008 when the 40-years-old Belarusian won via KO in the third round.

The European is in the midst of a four-fight run without a victory in the Octagon. Tai Tuivasa and Shamil Abdurakhimov defeated him in 2018 via UD, then Walt Harris beat him via SD, but the fight was later overturned to “No Contest” because Harris flagged for PED and this past April “The Pitbull” lost to Augusto Sakai via SD.

“Big Ben” is also on a losing streak. The 37-years-old American lost his previous two bouts against Junior dos Santos in 2016 and Bulgaria’s Blagoy Ivanov in 2019 via Unanimous Decisions.
