MF: If this rumor is true… this is the biggest signing the UFC could make besides Fedor Emelianenko and Gegard Mousasi, who are currently employed by Strikeforce. If Arona is signed, his name is instantly thrown in to title contention for the light heavyweight or middleweight belt. Arona recently came off a 2 year lay-off and beat Marvin Eastman by unanimous decison at Bitetti Combat in Brazil.
