Albini faces Arlovski in November

 

Following a spectcaular UFC debut in July, Brazil's Junior Albini will attempt to make it two for two in the Octagon on Nov. 11 when he faces former heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski in Norfolk, Virginia.

UFC Fight Night will air live on FS1 from the Ted Constant Convocation Center.

Relatively unknown, Albini made an immediate impression in the Octagon on July 22 when he knocked out Tim Johnson in less than three minutes. The victory earned Albini Performance of the Night honors, a No. 13 ranking and a shot at "The Pit Bull," a former world champion looking to get back on the winning track at the expense of the rising Brazilian star.
