Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight Champions Andrei Arlovski and Tim Sylvia will go to war for the fourth time in their careers when they hook 'em up at the ONE FC 5 event scheduled for this Friday night (Aug. 31, 2012) at Quezon City's Smart Araneta Coliseum in the Philippines.
And for "The Pitbull," it's payback time.
"He's a dickface, period. What he did, how he acted, it's definitely bullshit. Now it's gonna be revenge. August 31st is revenge day for me, that's it. I want to knock his fucking ass out so bad. Trust me, I will do everything possible to do this."
Arlovski (17-9) was able to finish off Sylvia (31-7) with a first round submission (heel hook) in their initial encounter way back in 2005; however, "The Maniac" roared back to take two straight the following year. The former is 4-4 since departing the Octagon while the latter is 7-3.
