Awesome!!! has learned that ProElite’s second show under its new ownership and management will happen November 5 at the iWireless Center in Moline, Illinois. Although no announcements have been made regarding the event, which is tentatively dubbed “ProElite II” or the show’s fight card, there is strong indication that the promotion is working on a third meeting between former UFC heavyweight champions Tim Sylvia (29-7) and Andrei Arlovski (16-9) and that the bout could be the main event.

Rest here

To be fair, their first two fights were good, the third was a snoozfest

I don't know who takes this. Both guys are finished and will never be a relevant fighter again. Going by their first 3 fights, Arlovski rolled him the first time, rolled him the 2nd time but then was caught by a punch, and then beat him via boring decision the 3rd time that everyone but the cageside judges disagreed with. Considering how poorly he fought in all 3 fights, it's hilarious that Tim got 2 wins out of it. That said, I don't think those fights matter much as they were quite some time ago, and both guys are considerably worse than they were.

I dunno, I lean towards Arlovski. Despite the fact that his chin is shot, he does still train actively (which I don't believe Tim does). Tim is fatter, slower, and can't take a punch as well as he used to be able to, so it wouldn't shock me if he got laid out in under a minute. Then again, Arlovski also getting canned in a minute isn't shocking either......

Either way, this fight sucks but it's a hilarious suck.
