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.

O boy, I'm located too close to this event not to go. I'm not a Travis Fulton fan by any stretch of the imagination but he does hit hard. What if he puts AA to sleep??? Phone Post

Someone reported yesterday that Tim/Andrei was the main event. This is much much better IMO.

Sylvia should get handled by Rizzo. I would love to see Fulton KO Arvloski and go to the UFC @ 205.

 I was at the Pro Elite show here in Honolulu. They put on a good show and both Rich and TJay are a couple of good guys. If I am back in IL then, I'll be going to that show too.

TopGrinder -  Wonder what is up with Reagen Penn. Had a good showing on the first elite card. Maybe he is UFC bound soon. Hope so


The article has Reagen fighting at this event.

I agree with smoogy, Arlovski and Tim Sylvia are not guys to build a promotion around and these fights have real stinker potential.

Rizzo v Sylvia is a very interesting fight. I think Rizzo should definitely win but who knows?

Anyone have a clue how Fulton looks these days? Hopefully he isn't coming to collect a check and is actually training?

 I really hope Pedro can finish Sylvia in exciting fashion. Also would love to see Fulton put on a great showing vs AA.

I'd love nothing more than to see Rizzo leg kick Sylvia to death, but I don't think by any means it's a lock.

He has had 3 straight wins granted but Rizzo's alot chinier these days and say what you will about Sylvia, but he can punch.
He's got good straight punches to counter those leg kicks.

That said, Rizzo was in his prime a fantastic counter striker. Lets hope he brings it.

 Would be awesome to see Rizzo get the win and maybe one last run in the UFC. One of my all time favorites

Here is a fun fact...

Back when Tim first joined the UFC his manager Monte Cox had a clause in his contract saying Tim would fight anyone BUT Pedro Rizzo. This was back when Pedro and Randy were the two best HWT's.

It's kind of cool this is happening now. Could go either way but TIm has looked a lot less in shape.

If Arlovski has any sense he will use his grappling skills in this fight. Fulton should be an easy opponent but Arlovski isnt the smartest fighter. He simply cant take a punch and if he insist on making it a standup fight, Fulton has the power to knock him out.
It is amazing that Arlovski was a top heavyweight and fighting Fedor only 2 1/2 years ago. I dont think anyone could have foreseen him falling so far from the top of the heavyweight ranks.
Sylvia has also taken a drastic plunge in the rankings since his fight with Fedor. He has not had a fight against an A level opponent in 3 years and was knocked out by Ray Mercer and Abe Wagner.
Cant believe these two guys were at the top of the UFC's heavyweight division at one time not long ago.

I think Rizzo is definitely NOT underrated...

I agree, ProElite needs to create some new regional blood/talent if they want to continue to do well.

I could be VERY wrong, but I see Timmay winning this one with that loooonnnnggggg jab of his.

I haven't seen either of their fights lately, but I have heard that both have been looking way past their primes.

Wouldn't be surprised if it went down like that. If Tim is training seriously and in decent shape then he should really win. HUGE 'if' though. Quite an interesting fight actually.

Can't believe I'm saying this but I kind of miss Big Tim in relevant MMA.
