ONE FC 5 results: Andrei Arlovski vs Tim Sylvia ends in 'no contest' after illegal kicks from 'The Pitbull'

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski wanted to exact revenge on "dickface" at the ONE FC 5: "Pride of a Nation" event earlier today (Aug. 31, 2012) at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Manila, Philippines.

He got his revenge, but it cost him the fight.

That's because "The Pitbull" kicked Tim Sylvia while "The Maine-iac" was down and floundering about the canvas, after he was dropped by two big right hands. Kicks to a downed opponent are legal under the ONE FC rules, so why did the fight get stopped?

You have to first wait for the referee's permission.

Arlovski instead went in a little too aggressively and fired off a few of his feet. One appeared to land on the shoulder area while the other clearly tagged the head. Action was halted and the Belarusian thought he was the winner; however, he was instead slapped with a yellow card and Sylvia was given five minutes to recover.

He couldn't.

As a result, we have no contest and no conclusion to this ongoing feud, so don't be surprised to see them try again under the ONE FC banner later this year.
