After suffering devastating first-round losses to both Fedor Emelianenko and Brett Rogers earlier this year, Andrei Arlovski is looking to make a comeback. The former UFC heavyweight champion is hoping to return to action at either the Strikeforce: Evolution event on December 19th, or at the Dynamite!! 2009 event on New Year’s Eve in Japan.
Fanhouse is reporting that Arlovski’s management team has been in discussion with both organizations, and that the Belorussian fighter is training to fight on one of the cards.
Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker stated during Saturday’s post-fight press conference that two heavyweight signings will be announced within the next ten days. There is no word as of yet as to whether Arlovski is one of the heavyweights that Coker was referring to.
