UFC Fight Night 195 ( UFC 40) results: Andrei Arlovski edges Carlos Felipe, extends heavyweight wins

The UFC Vegas 40 event features a heavyweight division. He reunited with newcomer Carlos Felipe from Brazil on Saturday. But Erlovsky has proven in the past that he still has some things to teach the younger generation. Arolovsky (31-20 MMA) has won three of his last four fights, his most recent victory being a unanimous decision against Chase Sherman. This competition will mark the emergence of the 34th Octagon of Legends. Meanwhile, Carlos Felipe (11-1 MMA) entered today's UFC Vegas 40 co-host event hoping for his fourth consecutive win. In their recent efforts, the Brazilian is winning the decisions behind Jack Collier and Justin Tafa. One of the UFC Vegas 40 participating events begins, the first round being a relatively strategic battle. Irvolsky stayed out of the striking range and mixed kicks and punches, while Philip's production revolved mostly around boxing. Both men have their own moments, but the change in the fight made no difference. Arolovsky doubled the number of strikes he threw in the first round. Philip had range issues in the second round, but dropped as he got closer. Too much movement by Arlovski.  With the need to take things in Round 3, Philip did just that. He was lucky when Erlovsky slipped a kick and fired some good shots when Erlovsky got up and got back on his feet, but that was all he had left in the tank. Erlowski pushed back the spread with volume punches, but none ended before the last bell. The stand-up case was almost entirely left to the judges, and all three saw it in favor of Irvolsky. Andrei Arolovski defeated Carlos Felipe by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)
