ProElite 2: Pedro Rizzo Out of Nov. 5 Main Event Against Tim Sylvia

Tim SylviaProElite 2, ProElite’s second event since relaunching in August, takes place on November 5 in Moline, Illinois, but lost its original main event after an arm injury recently forced Pedro Rizzo out of his scheduled matchup against fellow UFC veteran Tim Sylvia.

UPDATE: Sylvia will reportedly face little-known German Andreas Kraniotakes (12-4), who has earned stoppages in all twelve of his wins while fighting primarily in his native country.

Heavyweights are also slated to meet in the co-main event, asAndrei Arlovski looks to build on his August win that snapped a four-fight win streak when he meets journeyman Travis Fulton.

Before the matchups were announced, it was rumored that Sylvia and Arlovski could meet for a fourth time in the main event following their trilogy in the UFC, which Sylvia came back to win 2-1.

An eight-man tournament featuring heavyweight prospects is also expected to take place at the event.
