Andrei Arlovski to Adrenaline MMA?


Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski is expected to announce his future fight plans at a press conference today in Los Angeles, Calif., according to several published reports.

There's speculation that the Chicago-based fighter will reveal that he has signed on with either Affliction or Adrenaline MMA and take on Ben Rothwell at the "Banned" event set for the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., on July 19.

Perhaps Adrenaline MMA gave us all the scoop before the big announcement -- "The Pitbull" is listed on the fighter roster on the Web site. It might not mean he's signed an exclusive deal, but it could mean something (Fedor Emelianenko is also listed and he's fighting Sylvia on July 19; however, it's unlikely that he is considered and Adrenaline MMA fighter).

Regardless, expect a formal announcement one way or the other shortly.
