Andrei Arlovski Eyes Dec. 19 Strikeforce Or New Year's Eve in Japan Fight

Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski is looking to fight by the end of the year and could be competing at Strikeforce: Evolution on Dec. 19 or in Japan with Sengoku or Dynamite!! 2009 on New Year's Eve.

FanHouse has learned that Arlovski's management has been in discussions with the aforementioned organizations and Arlovski is currently training to potentially fight on one of those cards.

Interestingly, Arlovski, who is coming off a pair of knockout losses this year to Fedor Emelianenko in January and Brett Rogers in June, could have fought on the Fedor vs. Rogers card this past weekend. Arlovski was offered Mike Whitehead, Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou (Whitehead and Sokoudjou would have moved up in weight) and finally Antonio Silva, but parties could not agree to the matchups.

Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker teased the media late Saturday at the Fedor vs. Rogers post-fight conference by saying that there will be two big heavyweight signings to be announced within the next 10 days. Could Arlovski be one of them?
