Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski will look to win three in a row for the first time in over five years when he tangles with rising slugger Tom Aspinall at the promotion’s upcoming mixed martial arts (MMA) event on Feb. 20.

Arlovski (30-19, 2 NC), 41, who made his Octagon debut roughly 20 years back, is coming off consecutive decision wins over Philipe Lins and Tanner Boser, the latter of which came at UFC on ESPN 17 last November.

As for Aspinall (9-2), he’s only been in the promotion since last July but has already racked up back-to-back knockout victories over Jake Collier and Alan Baudot. The 27 year-old Englishman has yet to go to a decision in 11 pro fights.

The Feb. 20 fight card will be headlined by the titanic tilt between Curtis Blaydes and Derrick Lewis. Elsewhere on the card, Carlos Condit and Matt Brown (finally) go to war in welterweight action.
