The UFC’s return to Singapore will include fights involving Andrei Arlovski and Takanori Gomi.


The UFC kicked off Tuesday with a slew of fight announcements for its Saturday, June 17th event in Singapore. Two of the bigger names confirmed for the event are former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski and former PRIDE lightweight champion Takanori Gomi. Arlovski will be facing Poland’s Marcin Tybura, while Gomi will take on Jon Tuck.

Arlovski (25-14, 1 NC) has lost four straight bouts, including a 92-second thrashing vs. Francis Ngannou at UFC on FOX 23 in Denver. His other defeats during this run have come against Josh Barnett (who became the first man to submit Arlovski), Alistair Overeem, and current champion Stipe Miocic. The last time Arlovski won a fight was by unanimous decision vs. Frank Mir at UFC 191, which gave him an unlikely six-fight winning streak. Tybura (15-2) had a disappointing UFC debut, losing to Timothy Johnson by decision last May in Zagreb, Croatia. Since then, Tybura has scored back-to-back stoppage wins, knocking out Viktor Pesta with a head kick in August, then TKOing Luiz Henrique at UFC 209.

For some reason i was thinking Gomi was done. He'll be gone with a loss to Tuck.
