MMAjunkie confirmed with a source close to negotiations that Arlovski is targeted for a UFC 174 bout opposite Brendan Schaub (10-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC). The source asked not to be named because he was not authorized to publicly discuss the matter.

HAPPY BEYOND BELIEF RIGHT NOW
If this fight happens at UFC 174 I am going to be so freaking happy.
Arlovski IS THE GUY that got me into MMA and it would make me so happy to see him fight live in his return to the UFC

Arlovski can still make a nice fringe contender as he has the speed and power to land first. Very good first fight too.as Schaub usually has a crazy speed advantage but not this time not as much. And he wont be able to hump him for three rounds. I got AA by KO!

Barnett, Hunt or Gonzaga would be fun fights as well.

Yep, makes sense. Arlovski's shown mostly good stuff since the Fedor KO, along with a lot of heart in the loss to Rumble. He's like Gabriel Gonzaga - legit enough to challenge anyone, but unlikely to be the next contender. He'll get some bigger paychecks in the twilight of his career, and the UFC will have a reason to break out all the old film reels of the famous mouthpiece.

For this specific fight, I think Arlovski has the sprawl to keep Schaub honest, and his power and speed in the standup could present real problems to an historically chinny HW. I'm gonna go ahead and call a KO by Arlovski in the 1st or 2nd.

I thought Schaub was lined up with Hunt. Schaub was on the Adam Carolla podcast saying exactly that he was fighting Hunt in August just a couple days ago.

Either fight is a tough one for Schaub.

Pitbull took shots from Rumble and fought with a broken jaw, I'm sure he can deal with Schaub.

Betting on who lands first and then it's light out for someone.. Pretty stoked for this...if it does happen though.

He was, but he confirmed on 'The fighter & the kid' podcast that the Hunt fight wasn't happening, but wouldn't talk about it.

He is competing in the BJJ world championships at the end of May though so i'm not sure wether this fight will happen at 174.......
