Former UFC Champion Andrei Arlovski Signs With Strikeforce

New, 6 comments

From his official website:

As promised I wanted to tell you all first hand, I have a multi-fight deal for the next 16 months with Strikeforce and I cannot wait to get into the ring and show the world what I have been working on the last few months!

Sherdog is reporting that Arlovski will face off against Antonio "Big Foot" Silva on May 15th in St. Louis.  Arlovski hasn't fought since getting knocked out in quick fashion against Brett Rogers last June.  Silva is coming off a close decision loss to Fabricio Werdum in November.  Can Arlovski make some noise in the Strikeforce division, or are his better days behind him at 31 years of age?  Just a reminder, he was giving Fedor Emelianenko all he could handle before he had a brain fart and thought he was a lightweight as he went for a flying knee and got knocked out.
