UFC Fight Night 51: Bigfoot vs Arlovski 2 Predictions- Kamikaze Overdrive MMA

Scott Johnson

The UFC returns to Brazil for UFC Fight Night 51, featuring a return engage from a 2011 Strikeforce battle pitting former UFC Heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski and former UFC title challenger Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva.

In their first meeting, Silva dominated the fight from start to finish with his striking and the periodic takedown. Andrei was able to avoid getting knocked out for the first time in 3 fights, but a lackluster effort continues his downward slide. Since their meeting, Arlovski has gone on a significant tear, compiling a 7-2-1 record. For Silva, he took a stiff jump in competition post-Arlovski- defeating a number of highly regarded Heavyweights and challenging Cain Velasquez for 265 pound strap.

Also on the main card long time UFC veteran Gleison Tibau faces Polish battler Piotr Hallmann. Tibau has become the ultimate Lightweight gatekeeper. If Hallmann were to get by the Brazilian it would move him into the next echelon of competition. Yuri Alcantara returns to action against Russell Doane and in a battle of Ultimate Fighter Winner’s Leonardo Santos meets the returning Efrain Escudero.
