Andrei Arlovski vs. Ray Lopez Booked for ProElite’s August 27th Return

(We’d recognize those feet anywhere. Photo courtesy of Sherdog.)

Fifth time’s a charm? After four consecutive losses β€” three by dramatic first-round knockout β€” Andrei Arlovski will have yet another chance to redeem himself at ProElite’s return show (August 27th, Honolulu). His opponent is as “rebound” as they get. ProElite has confirmed that Arlovski will be taking on Ray Lopez, a Michigan-based light-heavyweight with less than two years of pro experience, whose 5-1 record doesn’t include a January 2010 submission loss that was later changed to a no-contest. Lopez most recently scored a first-round knockout over Rob Morrow at a KOTC event on July 16th.

Arlovski vs. Lopez is listed as the event’s headliner. ProElite certainly did their part by finding an opponent that the Pitbull can beat β€” now all Andrei has to do is avoid taking a nasty one to the chin. Will he pull it off? ProElite 1 will also feature a co-headlining middleweight scrap between UFC vets Kendall Grove and Joe Riggs, and the MMA debut of BJ Penn‘s brother Reagan Penn.

After the jump: Videos of Ray Lopez in action.

(Roy Lopez vs. William Penn, 3/6/10. Skip ahead to about 2:30, and you’ll see Lopez get swarmed before getting back to his feet and throwing bungalows until Penn drops. It’s like a ghetto version of Kongo vs. Barry.)

I'm actually intrigued with the Kendal Grove and Joe Riggs matchup. The first time these two met Riggs smashed Grove with some wicked ground and pound; however I see it played out differently in this rematch. I'm calling this one in Grove's favor. Grove wins this in the first round by submission

arlovski's toes curl more than a nymphos in a gang bang....wom,womp;(

for arlovski's safety they have decided to do body shots only in this fight.

Reagan Penn, William Penn, dang, how many bros BJ got? Maybe someday we could see a whole card of Penn vs The World. I'd pay just to see Penn vs Teller alone.

a good friend of mine fought ray lopez back in february, kinda smashed him up easily for all 3 rounds... that being said, with arlovski's VERY suspect chin, he prolly can beat him.
