Sylvia/Rizzo, Arlovski/Fulton headline ProElite 2 in Nov
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 meets Pedro Rizzo in the main event while three-time champ Andrei Arlovski, who headlined the promotion’s first event in August, meets journeyman Travis Fulton.
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.
