Former heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski will attempt to end a five-fight losing streak when he faces Junior Albini at UFC Fight Night 120.
Promotion officials announced the pairing on Friday evening. UFC Fight Night 120 takes place at the Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Va., on Nov. 11 and is headlined by a lightweight clash between Anthony Pettis and Dustin Poirier. The card will be televised on Fox Sports 1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.
Arlovski hasn’t tasted victory since September 2015, when he garnered a unanimous decision over Frank Mir at UFC 191. The 38-year-old Belarusian has been finished in four of the five bouts during his current skid. Most recently, however, he dropped a three-round verdict to Marcin Tybura at UFC Fight Night 111 on June 17.
The 26-year-old Albini kicked off his promotional tenure with a first-round technical knockout victory over Timothy Johnson at UFC on Fox 25. The Brazilian is currently riding a 10-fight winning streak and owns a 14-2 professional mark overall.
