Unbeaten Australian sensation Tai Tuivasa will travel to Chicago this spring to face off with former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski in a UFC 225 bout at United Center on June 9.
In the UFC 225 main event, which airs live on Pay-Per-View, Robert Whittaker defends his middleweight title against Yoel Romero. Tickets go on sale on April 13.
A Chicago favorite, Arlovski has never competed in his adopted hometown as a UFC fighter, but after back-to-back wins over Junior Albini and Stefan Struve, "The Pit Bull" will get his wish when he takes on the 25-year-old Tuivasa, who has knocked out Rashad Coulter and Cyril Asker in his first two trips to the Octagon.
