UFC 82 Card Finalized, Arlovski Finishes On The Undercard

Andrei Arlovski

UFC 82: Pride of a Champion
March 1, 2008
Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio

As the former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski’s contract with the UFC ends on April 15, without a contract extension, the promotion decided to bury one of the best known fighters in the sport on the under card of UFC 82.

It seems like a bad move by the UFC to not hang on to their branded celebrity fighters such as Randy Couture, Tito Ortiz, Andrei Arlovski and Nick Diaz, but instead pay outside fighters ridiculous about of money to fight in the UFC. (Cro Cop, Lesnar, Shogun, Chonan, Silva).

As a free agent, Arlovski will be able to shop around and become a headliner for one of the major deep waleted promotions like EliteXC, M-1 or HDNet Fights.
