UFC President Dana White tweeted yesterday that former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski will be returning to the UFC and now it has been announced when his next fight will be and who it will be against.

Arlovski’s return fight will take place at UFC 174 on June 14th, 2014 at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC. He will be fighting Brendan Schaub who spoke to FOX Sports about the fight:

“My manager called me and I was actually on the beach doing a recovery workout and he goes ‘I got some news for you’. He goes ‘it’s a big one’ and I knew the Mark Hunt stuff, Mark was dragging his feet and they wanted to wait till August or September so I was like who do we got? He goes ‘Andrei Arlovski’ and you got him June 14,” Schaub told FOX Sports on Friday. “I couldn’t be more excited. Andrei and I have trained together before, he trains at a world-class level. For me it’s a legend, it’s a world-class fighter. We’ll definitely be the talk of UFC 174.”

“So I shot for the stars and I landed on the moon with Andrei Arlovski. He’s a bigger name than Mark Hunt. He’s a legend. It’s like them calling up and saying you’re pitching against Bo Jackson, he’s one of the greats,” Schaub said.
