Andrei Arlovski continued to be a timeless part of the heavyweight division when he beat another far younger opponent Saturday at UFC Fight Night 195.

Arlovski (32-20 MMA, 21-14 UFC) extended his record for most wins in divisional history and climbed into sole possession of fourth most wins overall in UFC history with a unanimous decision win over Carlos Felipe (11-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) by unanimous 29-28 scores.

The heavyweight bout was the UFC Fight Night 195 co-main event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. It streamed on ESPN+.

The first round was a relatively tactical battle. Arlovski stayed on the outside of the striking range and mixed up kicks and punches, while Felipe’s output largely revolved around the boxing. Both men has their moments, but nothing of fight-altering significance landed.

It was more of the same in the second round. Arlovski gained some confidence in his ability to take shots and land further inside the pocket. Felipe’s output dropped off from the first round until the final 45 seconds of Round 2, where he started getting through Arlovski’s guard and landing some shots that proved more effective.

With the need to pick things up going into Round 3, Felipe did just that. He got somewhat lucky when Arlovski slipped off a kick and managed to land some good strikes as Arlovski got up and back to his feet, but it was everything he has remaining in the tank. Arlovski pushed back down the stretch with volume punches, but there was no finish before the final bell.

An almost entirely standup affair was left to the perspective of the judges, and all three saw it in Arlovski’s favor.

“I’m like Nike: Just do it,” Arlovski said of his ability to keep winning during his post-fight interview with Michael Bisping.
