Despite major events scheduled for Cincinnati (Oct. 20), Newark, N.J. (Nov. 17) and Las Vegas (Dec. 29), Crain’s Chicago Business says the UFC may be headed to Chicago’s Allstate Arena or the United Center in the fall. Additionally, former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski, a Chicago fighter, may be booked for the event.

it's great to see the ufc being able to go to places it couldn't before. it has become mainstream and that is awesome. more people everyday are realizing that it is a legitimate sport, and not just a bloodbath. yay for the ufc!

As soon as i saw the topic, i knew AA was involved. Hope they give him a good fighter this time. Last fight he had was a joke.

Hopefully he grows back his hair and turns into a beast again for this fight. I don't like the "pretty boy" arlovski
