Today, via: Twitter, Dana White (president of the UFC) tweeted "Welcome back Andrei Arlovski" - That could only mean one thing, right?
Outside of the UFC, as many may know, Arlovski wasn't quite as dominant as he once was. With new found motivation and determination, he was ready to work his way back to the major leagues of MMA.
Arlovski, currently 4-1 in his last 5 fights has shown huge interest in fighting for the UFC once again. In recent news, there was talk about Dana White and the UFC signing Arlovski but couldn't because he was still under WSOF contract.
