1140 KHTK Sacramento radio
Tim Sylvia beat Andrei Arlovski just a few weeks ago in Anaheim at UFC 59 to win the UFC Championship. Sylvia won’t have much time to celebrate as he will need to get right back to training as he is scheduled to face Arlovski for a third time in July.
UFC President Dana White told 1140 KHTK Sacramento radio on “The Carmichael Dave Show” that the two will fight for a third time in July as the main event at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on July 8th for the UFC Heavyweight title.
White said that Sylvia requested that Andrei get an immediate rematch to put the fluke allegations to rest. Sylvia knocked out Arlovski in the first round a couple of weeks ago and will now fight Andrei for a third time, just three months later.
Sylvia has won four fights in a row and sports a 21-2 record, while Arlovski who had won six fights in a row before his loss three weeks ago is now 10-4.
