Accordingo to an article in the Chicago Sun, Dana White stated that Andrei “Pitbull” Arlovski is not next in line for a title shot against the winner of Randy Couture vs. Gabriel Gonzaga. Dana White previously stated that Arloveski will get a title shot with a win over Fabricio Werdum. Dana’s reason for this change, was the lackluster performance by Arlovski at UFC 70. Arlovski did just enough to win his fight against Fabricio Werdum. He came out strong in the first round, dominating Werdum. The next two rounds were full of Arlovski being cautious and just defending against Werdums attacks. The crowed booed throughout the end of the fight and Arlovski even apologized for his bad performance after the fight.
UFC president Dana White said that he was disappointed with Chicago-based heavyweight Andrei Arlovski’s victory April 21 and that Arlovski is not next in line for a title shot
