Andrei Arlovski draws Tai Tuivasa at UFC 225 *POLL*

A heavyweight bout between former UFC champion Andrei Arlovski and unbeaten prospect Tai Tuivasa is the latest addition to June’s UFC 225 lineup.

UFC officials today announced the bout between Arlovski (27-15 MMA, 16-9 UFC) and Tuivasa (7-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC).

UFC 225 takes place June 9 at United Center in Chicago. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Arlovski, an honorable mention in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA heavyweight rankings, is coming off a significant victory for his career. He beat Stefan Struve by unanimous decision at UFC 222 earlier this month, tying Frank Mir for the all-time wins record in UFC heavyweight competition. Moreover, “The Pitbull” pushed his winning streak to two, further removing himself from a five-fight losing skid, which had some some in the industry calling for his retirement.

Looking to show Arlovski there’s a new caliber of heavyweight will be Tuivasa, who is off to a hot start in his UFC career. The charismatic Australian has won both of his UFC fights by first-round knockout, including a finish of Cyril Asker at UFC 221 in February. After the win, “Bam Bam” drank beer from a shoe, putting him in MMA lore.

The latest UFC 225 card includes:

Champ Robert Whittaker vs. Yoel Romero – for middleweight title
Carla Esparza vs. Claudia Gadelha
Joseph Benavidez vs. Sergio Pettis
Curtis Blaydes vs. Alistair Overeem
Rashad Evans vs. Anthony Smith
Rashad Coulter vs. Allen Crowder
Andrei Arlovski vs. Tai Tuivasa
CM Punk vs. TBA

TBA could be anyone, Conor, GSP, or even you elderly neighbour: obviously TBA has got this match's favoured status in the fight against CM Punk.

Looks pretty quick for a fat boy.  If Arlovski can weather the storm, I think he will be able to pick some shots once this kid starts to fade.  If there is a second round, that's where Tuivasa will drop.
