Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski is slated to make his One FC debut at the promotion’s “Pride of a Nation” event on Aug. 31 in the Philippines.

It will come against a different opponent than originally expected, however. Arlovski was expected to square off with Sao Palelei at One FC 5, but a recent shifting of gears now has him facing fellow former UFC champion Tim Sylvia, according to MMAWeekly.com sources.

Arlovski (17-9) has had a rough go of it since exiting the UFC in 2008. He started off by winning back-to-back bouts, but then embarked on a four-fight skid that left him searching. He has since rebounded with two recent victories before signing with One FC.

Arlovski was originally set to face Palelei, but the Australian tweeted that he would no longer be facing Arlovski because One FC wanted him to sign a five-fight contract and he refused.

In enters Tim Sylvia...

If im able ill watch.

regardless of their losses the fact that their facing each other is what would get me to watch.

if they weren't facing each other I could care less about watching

A couple of years ago I wouldn't have been interested in this fight at all, but I'm kind of interested to see where they both are at right now. Plus there's bad blood there since Tim is a pee pee pee taster.

That was such a great quote from AA.
I'm pretty excited for this actually.
