UFC Fight Night 120: Junior Albini takes on former champ Andrei Arlovski

Junior Albini (14-2-0) made a splash at UFC on FOX 25 and now he has a chance to make another one at Virginia’s UFC Fight Night 120 against former world champion Andrei Arlovski (25-15-0).

The 26-year-old Brazilian No. 13 “Baby” dispatched Timothy Johnson in less than 180 seconds in his octagon debut, earning a performance of the night award. He’s also on a 10-fight win streak dating back to September 2013.

The 38-year-old No. 12 Arlovski is on the bubble, with four of his consecutive losses ending prematurely, albeit against top contenders.

UFC Fight Night 120 is scheduled for Nov. 11 at the Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Virginia.

The card currently includes:

Anthony Pettis (20-6-0) vs Dustin Poirier (21-5-0)

Junior Albini (14-2-0) vs Andrei Arlovski (25-15-0)

Karl Roberson (5-0-0) vs. Darren Stewart (7-1-0, 1NC)

Cezar Ferreira (11-6-0) vs Nate Marquardt (35-18-2)

Diego Sanchez (27-10-0) vs Matt Brown (20-16-0)

More bouts are expected to be announced.
