Former UFC Heavyweight Champions Tim Sylvia and Andrei Arlovski are apparently in talks for a fourth meeting, this time under the ProElite banner on Nov. 5, 2011, in Moline, Illinois.

Cage Potato brought word of the possible match-up earlier today.

The original Sylvia vs. Arlovski trilogy took place under the UFC banner back in 2005-06, with "The Maine-iac" getting a 2-1 advantage. Unfortunately the third (and what at the time was believed to be the final) meeting of the two was a five-round snoozefest that Sylvia won on points.

I did literally fall asleep in the third fight and woke up and it was still going on.

I'm pumped!

Arlovski should dominate. Sylvia is a doughy mess if his last few fights are anything to go off!

Im in agreeance with Twenty on this one. Tht third fight was abysmal and I have no interest in a fourth or either's career at this point.
