On Sunday May 8th, Andrei Arlovski will step into the Octagon against former teammate Alistair Overeem. While at first many wondered how things would play out with the two Jackson WinkelJohn teammates fighting each other, the pair have explained before that they were never friends, and only training together on a few occasions.

To add to the interesting circumstances surrounding the fight, Greg Jackson and Mike Winkeljohn agreed to corner Andrei Arlovski for the fight, while normally they would have stayed out of teammate vs. teammate fights.

Ron Kruck of Inside MMA spoke to Arlovski, Jackson, and Winkeljohn to discuss the situation.
