Andrei Arlovski sat down with my secret girlfriend Loretta Hunt (secret because she doesn’t know yet), and what followed was an elaborate dance where Hunt tried to stir some shit while Andrei tried not to anger the Zuffa overlords by saying “Respekt” 32 times over the course of 12 minutes.
It will be interesting to see how Andrei Arlovski’s parting works. So far the UFC doesn’t have the best track record with guys who leave them. Sure, they let Mirko and Tim Sylvia leave. But between shelving Arlovski for nearly a year and then burying him on the preliminary card, it seems like they’re being more aggressive with the Pitbull. Will they try to bury him in spite of the fact that he played the games by the rules, waited till his contract was clear, and kept his mouth shut?
