“We were just talking about Arlovski. We want to sign him. It’s our intention to sign him. But I don’t know. We’re, well, I don’t know. We want to. Whether we will or not, I have no idea. We like Andrei and I know the fans like Andrei. I hope we can do something.”

– UFC President Dana White provides the latest update via Yahoo!Sports.com on the status of former heavyweight champion, Andrei Arlovski. “The Pitbull” is currently a free agent, but it has been reported that the UFC currently holds the first right of refusal on any offers that he receives from other promotions. That might not mean much with MMA upstarts like Affliction throwing around fight purses in excess of $1 million to big name fighters. In fact, there’s a rumor floating around that Arlovski and Ben Rothwell could mix it up on the debut show slated for July 19. That’s just a big bad rumor for now … time will tell.

Hmm, something does not add up because Rothwell stated that he would be fighting Arlovski in Affliction.

Yeah, I too also heard Arlovski is fighting Rothwell at the Affliction show. Not sure what is going on there. I want Arlovski in the UFC but if he doesn't stay its not the end of the world. If Arlovski is on the Affliction card I think I might get it. That card is turning out to be one heck of a card.

Just wondering if anyone has a link confirming this cuz yea not gonna believe it until I see it. Too much speculation not enough facts for me but this is probably going to happen I just don't want to put some carriage in front of the horse or whatever that saying is.

he signed behind dana's back yeah right!!!!!!
dana needs to sign him, 3 fight deal, what ever right now it is hard to say but the fact is the ufc needs andre more than andre needs to ufc
plus he is a fan favorite, and would put butts in the seats
no more prelim crap, get him another fight
than he gets winner of mir vs big nog
he has the longest winning streak in the heavyweight division

Rothwell posted on Sherdog on Monday. It's as close as a confirmation as there is at this point.
