In Ngannou, you have one of the fastest rising fighters in the UFC’s heavyweight division, as the Frenchman has already moved into the #10 ranking spot. That’s because Ngannou has won four straight fights, since he joined the UFC in December, 2015.
Arlovski, of course, needs no introduction to old school fans. But, the former champ has lost three straight bouts and has fallen to #7, after working his way back into the title shot mix.
Recently the UFC posted a “Road to the Octagon” segment for the bout, which you can catch below. UFC on FOX 23 will take place in Denver, Colorado.
