    :eek3:


    Tim Sylvia beat Andrei Arlovski just a few weeks ago in Anaheim at UFC 59 to win the UFC Championship. Sylvia won't have much time to celebrate as he will need to get right back to training as he is scheduled to face Arlovski for a third time in July. UFC President Dana White told a Sacramento radio station that the two will fight for a third time in July as the main event at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on July 8th for the UFC Heavyweight title.


    White said that Sylvia requested that Andrei get an immediate rematch to put the fluke allegations to rest. Sylvia knocked out Arlovski in the first round a couple of weeks ago and will now fight Andrei for a third time, just three months later.

    Sylvia has won four fights in a row and sports a 21-2 record, while Arlovski who had won six fights in a row before his loss three weeks ago is now 10-4.

    Good news, I wasn't sure how long I could wait with that ogre as champ for a rematch. I won't be as confident as I was for an AA win, and I'm hoping Arlovski won't be either.

    Hell no, his win over Arlovski was a fluke - he was about to get KTFO. In July Arlovski claims what is rightfully his.

    It was a short, exciting match and no one got injured. It is a great move.

    Same here.
     
  19. Sylvia wants to beat him while he's got the momentum. AA may not have enough time to fix his game :mamoru:

    don't stand toe to toe and exchange punches. buentello even caught AA in their exchange, but AA just made better contact

    i say go for a single and take it to the ground where AA excels and Sylvia is a wet fish

    should be good fight, AA wont go in thinking he is so unbeatable therfore maybe he will quit simply looking for the highlight KO and defend himself for a second or two

    Too soon for me. I was hoping Sylvia would at least beat up a few cans. Same with Arlovsky. Their records could have used it.
