Augusto Sakai pulls out split decision over Andrei Arlovski

Augusto Sakai vs. Sergey Spivak set for August

UFC Fight Night: Santos vs. Hill now has a heavyweight bout lined up as Augusto Sakai will meet Sergey Spivak at the event.

Sitting just outside the top 15 of the heavyweight division, Spivak will look to have a number next to his name as he takes on #14 Sakai. Spivak (14-3-0) holds a UFC record of 5-3 and has collected wins over the likes of Tai Tuivasa, Jared Vanderaa, and Aleksei Oleinik. In his last outing, he put a stop to Greg Hardy via a first-round finish at UFC 272.

Sakai (15-4-1) holds 11 knockouts as a professional, including one over Chase Sherman and Marcin Tybura. Come August, he will walk into the octagon on a 3-fight losing skid following his most recent loss to Tai Tuivasa. Despite the skid, Sakai will look to get back in the win column and record his 16th victory as a professional.

UFC Fight Night: Santos vs. Hill is set to take place on August 6th and will feature a light heavyweight showdown between Thiago Santos and Jamahal Hill as the main event of the evening.
