UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski
UFC 55: Fury – Uncasville, Conn. – Mohegan Sun Arena – Oct. 7, 2005
Andrei Arlovski only needed 15 seconds to retain the UFC heavyweight title at UFC 55.
The Belarus native plastered Paul Buentello with a right to the jaw, ending the main event almost as soon as it began.
Arlovski had been the interim champion, but was promoted to undisputed title holder due to Frank Mir’s injuries from a motorcycle accident.
Speaking of accidents, Ian “The Machine” Freeman missed the show due to a horse-riding mishap. He retired from the sport.
His scheduled opponent was TUF winner Forrest Griffin, who instead beat Elvis “The King of Rock & Rumble” Sinocic by TKO in 3½ minutes.
