“My worried thoughts were about the UFC might kick me out,” Andrei Arlovski opens up about his feelings after his last fight
“My worried thoughts were about the UFC might kick me out,” Arlovski told reporters, including MMA Junkie, at Wednesday’s media session at the UFC Apex.
He added, “Because I knew I had a great camp before that fight, and I was ready. I knew I was going to beat this guy, but just something happened, and wow. Because at the end of the first round, he was tired, and I was ready to do my stuff in the second and third round and takedown – I’m still upset about this.”
Former UFC heavyweight champion is booked to face Chase Sherman in his next fight, and he will be looking to get back on the win column with this one.
“Definitely it might be 90 percent striking match, but just in case, I have to be ready for some wrestling,” Andrei Arlovski is ready if the fight hits the ground
His opponent has spent some time at Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship, and he will like to keep the fight standing but in case Sherman decides to go for a takedown Andrei will be ready.
“I believe he’s 11 years younger than me, good striker,” Arlovski said. “Every heavyweight has heavy hands, and he’s a good hitter, and you just have to be ready. Definitely it might be 90 percent striking match, but just in case, I have to be ready for some wrestling, for some takedowns, because he saw what happened last time and just have to be ready.”
