For an event with very little sizzle on the card, HDNet Fights sure is making up for it by whipping up some decent news. Tucked into one of the dozens of articles on Randy Couture’s interview comes this:
Another embattled UFC heavyweight was a guest at the HDNet Fights show, as former champion Andrei Arlovski was present at the show and post fight press conference.
“I will fight very soon,” Arlovski stated about his fight career.
Sources close to the fighter confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that Arlovski is also waiting out his UFC contract which according to them expires in April and at that time the Belarus native will look to move on to another organization.
Well shit. When the UFC bought Pride, everyone thought it was heralding the dawn of a new era for their heavyweight division. Instead we’ve got Nog and Crocop floundering, no Barnett, no Hunt, and we’ve lost Randy. And now possibly Andrei too? Fucknuggets.
