Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski is an accomplished Sambo practitioner, making him a dangerous fighter when the fight hits the ground (just ask "dick face"). Similarly, Frank Mir is a decorated Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt with a penchant for breaking bones.
Just like a bag of potato chips.
That said, something about their co-main event brouhaha, which takes place at the UFC 191: "Johnson vs. Dodson 2" pay-per-view (PPV) event this Sat. night (Sept. 5, 2015) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, leads me to believe this long overdue showdown will play out entirely on the feet.
The fact they have four combined knockouts over the last 12 months may have something to do with it.
Speaking of which, the promotion recently released a pair of free fight videos highlighting what both heavyweight monsters are capable of. First up is "The Pitbull," who took a bite out of friend and teammate Travis Browne in their UFC 187 war back in May.
As for Mir, his destruction of both Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva (UFC Fight Night 61) and Todd Duffee (UFC Fight Night 71) were fun, but I think Dana White and Co. love sticking it to "The Maine-iac," and so we get this arm-snapping gem from UFC 48.
