Andrei says he didn't play russian roulette because of his loss to Rogers, not that he didn't play it.

"Some guy on internet said I played Russian roulette because I was depressed about losing," Arlovski said. "Let's get real here, guys. I didn't play Russian roulette because I was depressed that I lost to Brett Rogers. I wasn't even depressed. I was just in a bad mood. I'm 30 years old. It's not over. What's happened has happened. I'm ready to go and ready to fight."

And lets face it, Andrei wants Timmy b/c he knows Timmy can't get the KO, thus making arlovski yet another mma forum meme.




Goodnight, sweet prince.

Yeah maybe tom attencio can get trump to set up another card Affliction : Canned , night of the glass chin cans.

He seems a little upset about the Rogers lost since he said he can go back to changin tires. Maybe AA can change oil in the bay across from him..as long as he wears a hard hat

Please post the story in quotes instead of just giving us a link.

Quote:
After fighting at the top of the MMA heavyweight heap since originally bursting onto the UFC scene in late 2000, 30-year-old Andrei Arlovski, has seemingly fallen from grace. The popular Belorussian was rated among the worlds top three heavyweights less than a year ago, but now he finds himself at a crossroads after dropping two consecutive fights, both via devastating first-round knockout. The first came against consensus world number one heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko back in January, and the second to was to rising undefeated prospect Brett Rogers in June.

Arlovski was reportedly so depressed after the Rogers fight that he played Russian roulette, a game of death where an individual slides one bullet into a six chamber gun, spins it, and then puts the gun to his head before pulling the trigger. However, Arlovski refutes that claim in recent comments made via video blog post.

"Some guy on internet said I played Russian roulette because I was depressed about losing," Arlovski said. "Let's get real here, guys. I didn't play Russian roulette because I was depressed that I lost to Brett Rogers. I wasn't even depressed. I was just in a bad mood. I'm 30 years old. It's not over. What's happened has happened. I'm ready to go and ready to fight."

The former UFC heavyweight champion also announced that he will postpone his pro boxing debut which was originally planned for this fall, to focus on MMA.

"MMA now is number one priority for me," Arlovski said.

He apparently already has an opponent in mind in fellow down-and-out former UFC heavyweight champion and old nemesis Tim Sylvia. The two squared off three times while both fought for the UFC with Arlovski dropping two of the three fights, but Arlovski indicated that he'd like another crack at his old nemesis and would fight him, "any time, any day."

Arlovski also addressed the highly anticipated matchup between the last two men to beat him. Emelianenko and Rogers will square off at a recently unofficially announced Strikeforce event this October. With the Strikeforce heavyweight title shot at stake. Arlovski man no bones about who he'd like to see come out on top.

"Brett Rogers can lose and go back and change his tires in his body shop," Arlovski stated. "I want Fedor to win."
Also, none of the mentioned fighters are even in the UFC anymore.

You would think he would have a little more respect for a man that handed him his ass. If Rogers is going to be changing tires does that mean Arlovski is going to be the greeter at the front door? Im a fan of Arlovski, but this makes him look like a giant douche.

Of course he wants to fight Tim again, the guy just got KO'd by Ray Mercer in 20 seconds. Andrei is my favorite fighter to watch, period, but that's not a fight I'm particularly interested in seeing again...though I would love to see him knock Tim out...

If you think about it, the only reason Andrei has seemingly fallen from grace was due to one loss at the hands of Brett Rogers. I mean, before that it was a loss to the #1 ranked fighter in the world at that time. I think it mainly comes down to Andrei having a weak jaw, which unfortunately isn't something he can really improve. It's a shame because a glass-chin really doesn't go well with his style...or any style for that matter but his in particular.

Good to hear he's focusing on MMA at the moment though, I just wish the UFC would sign him again, he needs to work on not getting tagged and get back in the UFC where he belongs. Anyone else still interested in CC vs. AA? Kind of like Chuck and Wand in that it's a bit past it's time but would probably be a good fight nonetheless.

I don't like hearing that either, Andrei should be more respectful to a guy who just defaced him in absolutely no time at all.

I dont think his weak chin was the problem in the rogers fight, it was a lack of a good gameplan. Those shots from rogers were pretty hard and arlovski's offense was to throw one weak leg kick and back up to the cage.

Tim would beat him again.

True, I honestly haven't watched the fight since I watched it live. Doesn't make me a happy camper . it just seems like every fight Andrei loses, with the exception of the third fight with tim , he loses in devastating fashion. He clearly needs to work on his defense or switch up his gameplan entirely.

AA looked good against Fed. But terrible against Bret. He's like Jardine that way, sometimes good, sometimes bad.
