Arlovski Changed?

Does anyone here think that perhaps fame and fortune has made Andrei Arlovski "softer" and less hungry than earlier in his career? I ask this, because whenever I google him to read updates on his training, a good portion of the results are stories regarding his partying, or night club excursions, and he also seems to dress sort of, um, "European" and "metro-sexual". Has AA always been a partier and metro, or is the fame going to his head?

P.S., if anyone doesn't know what I'm talking about with the "metro-sexual" thing, just go to arlovski.tv, and look in his photo gallery entitled "Andrei the Model".

I think Arlovski mentioned in an interview, that he himself thought, he had gotten soft because of the exact things you mentioned (nightclubbing, etc). He said he was going to get serious again and forgo the partying. He looked good in his last fight so hopefully he's hungry again.

I personally think his second fight with Tim was a fluke loss and in the third fight he was apparently injured. So it looks like he might have just had some bad luck with Timmy but time will tell. He'll have to get past Crocop when Tim is dethrowned in the near future if he wants to regain his crown.

I was a huge AA fan, till I heard him allude to his partying ways in a post fight interview after ufc 66.
For a 10-5 fighter, he is still very highly regarded.
He has lost his intimmidating factor, he's still dangerous but will not be as terrifying to his opponents as he was back then. He has let him fame get to him, a very foolish guy. tsk! tsk! He maybe on his way of reviving his career, but I don't think he can hang w/ Fedor, who is a workaholic (w/c I respect), or CC.






Mac Danzig is still on his back; his sweaty, pumped white torso is flushed with the auburn heat that auburn skin produces when it is aroused. His panting, fetching head has been pushed up against the cage by... Marc Bocek’s energetic pounding...

He's 12-5, and also in UFC 66 he looked extremely intimidating. I think since he realized that if he lost another 2-3 fights in a row he wouldnt be in the UFC. He looked better in ufc 66 then ive seen before so hopefully he can get back on track and get a chance at the belt (whoever has it).

he looked bad at ufc 66 and was lucky that cruz is a total retard. AA said he was going to stop partying until he gets his title back.

He needs to stop shaving his chest hairs and getting a damn haircut.

His powers will return to him when he brings back the Were-man Arlovski.
