While Andrei Arlovski trained for his fight against Fedor Emelianenko at Affliction: Day of Reckoning, he mentioned that his opponent was ‘only human’. That was the day I realized Arlovski’s camp failed to inform him he was fighting Fedor Emelianenko. Fedor is about as much human as I am a flying pterodactyl. When archeologists look back at this era and unearth the bones of Fedor, they will deem him a Homo-overhandright-sapien. They’ll probably study his fists and use it as evidence for alien manipulation in human evolution. So it’s no surprise that Arlovski caught a loss against The Last Emperor. Arlovski took it pretty rough. Hell, dude even played Russian roulette with a loaded gun in a sort of half-assed attempt to commit suicide. Strikeforce gave The Pitbull another shot against undefeated Brett Rogers and…well after that fight, Rogers was still undefeated.
Last weekend, Andrei Arlovski caught his third straight loss, this time against mythological creature turned MMA fighter, Bigfoot Silva. Despite losing a unanimous decision, Arlovski still wants to get out there and bang with the best.
“I feel kind of upset because I put down my trainers. We had a great camp. I don’t know, after 11 months (out of action) it’s kind of hard to come back, but I think I did okay. I took his couple of shots on my chin. I guess I showed the fans my chin’s not weak. It was a tough fight. He’s tough. It just wasn’t my night. Right now I’m focused on my MMA career because when I took the fight on short notice against Brett Rogers my mind was focused on my pro boxing and as a result he knocked my ass out in less than 20 seconds. Of course I wanted to box, but in MMA I have three losses in a row. I’m 15-8 right now and it’s horrible. I just have to train I guess even harder and try to fight even harder. I feel great. I could fight maybe tomorrow. It’s up to Scott Coker. I want to fight, fight, fight.”
