Arlovski (25-12) is on the hunt for a win, as the former champ is coming off consecutive losses to Alistair Overeem and Stipe Miocic. Prior to the defeats, however, Arlovski had won six in a row and was knocking on the title shot door.
Mr. Barnett (34-8) is also looking to get back on track, as the former champ was submitted by Ben Rothwell in his last outing. Barnett has gone 2-2 now since returning to the UFC in 2013.
Recently the UFC released a “Battle Lines” episode regarding this Saturday’s scrap, which you can watch below.
