Former heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski will look to get back in the win column when he faces Marcin Tybura at UFC Fight Night in Singapore on June 17.

The UFC announced the new pairing along with four more bouts added to the card.

Arlovski (25-14, 1 no contest) will look to stop the bleeding after suffering four consecutive losses in the UFC, including three by knockout or TKO as he makes his return in June.

It will be a tough test for the former champion as Tybura (15-2) steps into the Octagon fresh off two knockouts in a row against Viktor Pesta and Luis Henrique.

Also added to the card is former PRIDE Fighting Championships lightweight king Takanori Gomi (34-12, 1 no contest) as he faces off with Jon Tuck (9-4).

After one fight back at bantamweight, Justin Scoggins (11-3) will attempt to return to 125 pounds for his next bout against Ulka Sasaki (19-4-2) at the upcoming card in Singapore. Scoggins had struggled to get down to flyweight in recent performances so he moved up to 135 pounds, but suffered a loss in his first bout back in the new division.

Now Scoggins is taking another shot at flyweight when he returns in June.

Kwan Ho Kwak (9-1) will face off with Russell Doane (14-7) while Cyril Asker (8-2) meets Walt Harris (9-5) in a heavyweight bout on the card.
