The former UFC Heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski turned 42 years old this year and he doesn’t know how many fights he has left in his UFC carrier. But Arlovski is certain he will fight for the championship once again.
Andrei Arlovski is riding a two-fight win streak against Philipe Lins and Tanner Boser and he is booked to face Tom Aspinall on UFC Fight Night: Blaydes vs Lewis.
Before his fight at Media day, Arlovski says, “I want to fight as long as possible and of course, I want to be a champion that is why I’m doing what I’m doing right now.”
“In the last two fights, I stuck to the gameplan and I trust my coaches 100 percent. Like Nike, just do it.” Andrei Arlovski reined the Heavyweight division back in 2005.
But in his last 10 fights, he has gone 4-5 on the records along with no contest and he is a little unsure how many fights are left inside him.
Andrei Arlovski doesn’t want to be a punching bag
Andrei Arlovski is a big name in the Heavyweight championship and he holds the title in various promotions but he doesn’t want to be a punching bag for other fighters in the division.
If even after winning consecutive fights he won’t be getting the title shot he will consider hanging his gloves. Arlovski added, “Definitely I don’t want to be a punching bag for some other fighters who will make some name, records off of me,”
“I have two kids, I’m a smart guy. I’m old and I want to see my grandsons and smoke cigars and drink some wine in my backyard.” So how you’ll see Andrei Arlovski going against Tom Aspinall.
