The resurgent ProElite has inked Nov. 5 for its next major event, and two ex-UFC heavyweight champions have taken co-headlining fights.

Five-time champ Tim Sylvia (29-7) meets Pedro Rizzo (19-9) in the main event while three-time champ Andrei Arlovski (16-9), who headlined the promotion's first event in August, meets journeyman Travis Fulton (247-48-10).

ProElite 2 takes place at the 12,000-seat iWireless Center in Moline, Ill., which is a stone's throw from part-time cop Sylvia's home.

Broadcast plans for the event have yet to be announced, though the promotion is in talks with HDNet to air the second event and additional ones, sources close to negotiations today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

An eight-man heavyweight tournament also is targeted for the fall event, as ProElite veteran and planned participant Mark Ellis (1-0) today told MMAjunkie.com Radio. It's unknown what position the tournament bouts would take on the card, a source said.

Additionally, ProElite veterans Reagan Penn and top-ranked women's flyweight fighter Tara LaRosa are expected to fight, according to MMAFighting.com.

I'm sorry... is that a typo?? 247-48-10??? So this Travis Fulton guy has over 300 fights on his record?? Does he fight every other day?

He's the most active fighter in MMA history, he's fought a lot of tough guys and hes very tough himself, always wished he would move to the UFC just for the fact hes putting up performance after performance with out so much as a week off sometimes.

He's a warrior for sure.

Pretty much. He travels the midwest circuit being up local tough guys and has been doing it for years, similar to Severn but much more prolific. Also, like Severn, there are rumors that he fixes fights. Fulton is the ultimate throw-back to the old days of the traveling fighter who goes from county fair to county fair beating up townies. It is awesome for what it is, and regardless of his strength of schedule, he has a record going that no one will ever beat.

Fulton is a freak for sure, but against top competition he's pretty much failed every time. Any B-league fighter is gonna have his hands full with him, but you'll see lots of familiar names in his loss column and very few in the win column.

If Arlovski loses to Fulton then it's time to hang 'em up or apply for a job with Wild Bill Fight Night IMO.

It is bad enough this card has 3 tomato cans in Sylvia. Rizzo and Arlovski but Travis Fulton? C'mon!
