Andrei Arlovski hopes to turn back later tonight (Sat, Nov 7, 2020) at UFC Vegas 13 live on ESPN from UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, when « Pitbull » takes on the weighty contender heavy rising Tanner Boser in the main Arlovski co-event will be there to prove he’s still a worthy name in the division so late in his career
Arlovski, who turns 42 next February, is one of the most successful fighters on the UFC list today The former heavyweight champion recorded 32 trips in total to the Octagon and is easily one of the most recognizable names in the heavyweight division « Pitbull » may not be the same fighter he was 10 years ago, but Arlovski continues to prove he’s good enough to compete with growing talent
While most people dismissed Arlovski either for his age or his lack of success inside the Octagon in recent years, the heavyweight veteran actually thinks his best days are ahead. him With extraordinary focus and dedication outside of the cage, as well as a capable team around him, Arlovski can’t wait to show he has a long way to go as he fights deeper into his forties.
« I take care of my body I choose what is most important to me now There aren’t many UFC fighters over 40 still fighting, » Arlovski told reporters on UFC Vegas 13 media day « WHO? Me, Alexey Oleynik, Yoel Romero and Anderson Silva who fought last weekend Listen, I have a great example in George Foreman, who became champion at 46 Mark my words, for me, the hours Prime listening are ahead of me in the near future «
It would be hard to imagine Arlovski making his way to a UFC title shot anytime soon, but the veteran contender is 2-1 in his last three Octagon appearances Arlovski seemed a little more patient and calculated in his attacks of the end and he paid wonders in his fights « Pitbull » no longer absorbs as much damage as before and he seems to be in control of his fights a little more
If Arlovski is to take out the fastest, most explosive Boser in UFC Vegas 13, he’ll have to build on his heavyweight experience, his world-class squad and his newfound sense of confidence. If Arlovski wins the win and breaks Boser’s two-game winning streak in the UFC, maybe it’s time to start thinking of Arlovski as the top 15 heavyweight entering 2021
And you, Maniacs? Does Arlovski have enough in the tank? Are his best days really ahead of him?
