Andrei Arlovski

I read somewhere that he stopped with the leg kicks but he injured it and is supposed to get an MRI. Has anyone else heard this or is it just an excuse? It makes more sense to me that he was injured than he just stopped the leg kicks because he thought they weren't working or something.

If someone is injured they wouldn't go into the ring with a 6'8 heavyweight champion who recently beat them up at a different event. I think it could be an excuse. But also he didn't deliver one leg kick so it might be a valid reason. I don't know. I expected more of this match. I thought it would end in the first round like always. Who's next for Arlovski now, is he retiring?

Yes that is true, he is having an MRI done/ or did an MRI yesterday or today, his ankles had swolen 4 times the size of it's normal size lol, which would explain why he stopped doing leg kicks or try to take him down. . . .

Well yeah...on the UFC 61 Medical Suspension sheet, it states that Arlovski is suspended until 09/07/06 because of injuries sustained...with no contact until 08/23/06. So yeah - Andrei definitely injured something.

Yeah. Possibly. You never know until it's announced. I'd like to see him on that card for sure though.

He won't retire but he might want to change camp. He needs people around him who will mentally build him up again after two straight defeats.

Why would he retire when he is only 27 years old? Arlovski is going to be around for years.
