UFC Ultimate Fight Night 51 was headlined by a rematch between Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva and former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski. The fight card went down at Nilson Nelson Gymnasium in Brasilia, Brazil and could only be seen here in the U.S. only on Fight Pass.
Arlovski lost the pairing’s first bout in Strikeforce in 2010 via unanimous decision. Going into the fight the former champ was riding a three-fight win-streak while Silva was coming off that Fight of the Year performance draw against Mark Hunt in December last year.
