Former UFC world champion Andrei Arlovski is set to take on a surging contender this fall.
Multiple people with knowledge of the promotion’s plans confirmed to MMA Fighting that Arlovski will take on Tanner Boser at the UFC’s event on Oct. 3. As of now, a location has yet to be announced for the card.
TSN was first to report the booking.
Arlovski looks to stay on the winning track following his unanimous decision victory over Philipe Lins at UFC Jacksonville in May. Following a four-fight stretch without getting his hand raised, “The Pitbull” was able to defeat Ben Rothwell at UFC San Antonio in July 2019 before suffering a first-round knockout at the hands of Jairzinho Rozenstruik at UFC 244.
