One FC's has added star power to their next event, inking fights that include former UFC champions Andrei Arlovski and Jens Pulver, respectively.

Arlovski will face Australian Soa Palelei, while Pulver is set to scrap with Eric Kelly.

Palelei announced his fight on Twitter.

The onetime UFC veteran has mostly fought in his home country over the last few years, amassing a seven-fight win streak since his last defeat. Palelei (17-3) has been defeated only a single time since his sole UFC bout, which came in 2007 when he lost to Eddie Sanchez. Since then, he's 9-1 with his only defeat coming at the hands of current Strikeforce champion Daniel Cormier.

Arlovski (17-9) has won two straight, with back-to-back knockouts over Travis Fulton and Ray Lopez respectively, while fighting for the ProElite promotion.

Multiple outlets have reported the Pulver-Kelly scrap, which the promotion has yet to officially confirm.

He hasn't been the same since the Fedor fight Though I missed the Lopez and Fulton fights, were they any good?

^^If you enjoy Arlovski beating people then yes.

Soa Palelei is on a seven win streak with all coming via (t)KO's... This does not look good for Arlovski.

Pulver should have hung it up years ago, I admire that he still has the passion but mannnnnn.

Andrei's chin is at risk, but Andrei won't have to land many shots before Soa stops fighting either.

i've seen soa's last few fights, although the one against bobb sapp counts for nothing he really has been on a roll lately and he looks dangerous, completely different to his lone fight in the ufc.
