Ex-champ Andrei Arlovski begged manager to fight at UFC Fight Night 136

MOSCOW – Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski’s current career strategy is to barrel ahead.

After a decision loss to Tai Tuivasa in June, Arlovski (27-16 MMA, 16-10 UFC) begged his manager to compete at UFC Fight Night 136. And win or lose after Saturday night, he’ll push for another fight by the end of the year.

At 39, Arlovski has just about seen it all in the octagon, and a meeting with Shamil Abdurakhimov (18-4 MMA, 3-2 UFC) on the UFC Fight Pass-streamed card at Olympic Stadium in Moscow is just another night of work.

“Victory is victory, and I’m like other heavyweights in line for a title shot,” Arlovski said. “In 2017, I was one step away from a title shot. After a few losses, I believe I’m top 10 or top 15 right now. I have to keep fighting to show exciting fights and the other job will (be done by) my management team.”

To hear more from Arlovski at UFC FIght Night 136 media day, watch the video above.
