Former UFC heavyweight Champion and current No.8 ranked Andrei “The Pitbull” Arlovski (25-14-0, 1NC, fighting out of Chicago Illinois) has claimed his spot on the Singapore fight card. Arlovski, a product of the famed Jackson-Wink MMA Academy and a veteran of the heavyweight division, has met and defeated almost every name of note on the heavyweight roster. He will now face off against the surging Polish prodigy Marcin “Tybur” Tybura” (15-2-0, fighting out of Warszawa, Poland) who is coming off back to back knock out wins in his last two UFC outings.

Japanese MMA legend, Takanori “The Fireball Kid” Gomi, ( 35-12-0,1NC, fighting out of Tokyo, Japan) will fight for the first time in Singapore. A fan favorite from his stint in Japan’s PRIDE FC, Gomi is known for his heavy punches and endurance. He will be taking on the well rounded American, Jon “Super Saiyan” Tuck (9-4-0, fighting out of Hagatna Guam, USA), who won his first Performance of the Night bonus in the Philippines when he submitted Korea’s Tae Hyun Bang.

A flyweight scrap will see Japan’s talented “Ulka” Sasaki (19-4-2, fighting out of Shizuoka, Japan), an unusually long and tall flyweight, clash with UFC veteran Justin Scoggins (11-3-0, fighting out of Spartanburg South Carolina, USA) in what will be an exciting technical matchup.

A former Korean regional Champion and UFC prospect “Handsome” Kwan Ho Kwak (9-1-0, fighting out of Seoul, South Korea) looks to win glory for his home country with a win over Hawaiian striker Russell Doane (14-7-0, fighting out of Honolulu Hawaii, USA).

Heavyweight standouts Cyril “Silverback” Asker (8-2-0, fighting out of Avignon, France) and Walt “The Big Ticket” Harris (9-5-0, fighting out of Birmingham Alabama, USA) will also throw down in what will surely be a heavy hitting war as the two vie to make their debut in the UFC’s heavyweight rankings.
