Andrei Arlovski will lock horns with Marcin Tybura in a heavyweight bout at UFC Fight Night 111, promotion officials announced Tuesday.
Four other bouts were also confirmed for June 17 card: Takanori Gomi vs. Jon Tuck at lightweight; Yuta Sasaki vs. Justin Scoggins at flyweight; Russell Doane vs. Kwan Ho Kwak at bantamweight and Cyril Asker vs. Walt Harris at heavyweight. UFC Fight Night 111 takes place at Kallang Indoor Stadium in Singapore. Broadcast plans for the event have not yet been announced, and the card does not yet have a headliner.
A former heavyweight champion, Arlovski will be looking to rebound from the second four-fight losing streak of his professional career. “The Pit Bull” is winless since 2016, having been finished by the likes of Stipe Miocic, Alistair Overeem, Josh Barnett and Francis Ngannou in succession. Prior to that, the Jackson-Wink MMA representative had tasted defeat just once in 12 bouts from August 2011 to September 2015.
Tybura, a longtime veteran of the Russia-based M-1 Challenge promotion, debuted in the Octagon with a unanimous decision loss to Timothy Johnson at UFC Fight Night 86. Since then, the 31-year-old Pole has scored back-to-back KO/TKO triumphs over Viktor Pesta and Luis Henrique Barbosa de Oliveira.
