While Andrei Arlovski trained for 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 forgot to inform him he was fighting Fedor Emelianenko. Fedor is about as 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 that lost 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. Rogers KOd Arlovski in twenty-seconds and Affliction decided to drop him off their imaginary card that never materialized.
Now Arlovski is starting to get back in the swing of things...by throwing verbal jabs at Brett Rogers. Check out what he said about The Grim in an interview with Fighters.com:
"I’m 30 years old. It’s not over...What’s happened has happened. I’m ready to go and ready to fight."
"Brett Rogers can lose and go back and change his tires in his body shop. I want Fedor to win"
Brett Rogers hasn't responded to any Arlovski's words just like he hasn't responded to any of our phone calls for an interview even though we've had it planned for weeks now (and even rescheduled it just for him). I had to get it out there. We still love Rogers but dude ducks interviews more than I duck calls from my functional alcoholic neighbor at 3am in the morning. Despite being KOd in his last two bouts, Andrei is still one of the best heavyweights in the game and we would love to see the dude play The Wolfman in the remake (looks like Benecio Del Toro beat him to it, bummer).
