Andrei Arlovski UFC 187 Win

Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski is pulling a GSP and says he was not impressed with Fabricio Werdum’s performance.

Arlovski spoke on B&S News and said that he saw some holes in Werdum’s game while watching him fight and defeat Cain Velasquez

Here’s what he had to say:

“When Werdum fought Browne and Hunt he impressed me with his hand speed and boxing technique. But I didn’t see any of that in his fight vs Cain. On the one hand, I was glad with that. But on the other hand, I have to develop myself anyway. When you stop developing you start falling down so I have a huge amount of work ahead of me. I’m at the age now when it is important to earn money. It’s cool to be a champion and all, but I was there three times already. As far as I know Werdum is injured now so to sit and wait for at least 6 months to get a crack at the title is inexpedient for me. My age doesn’t allow to sit and to hope for something. I want to go at it right here, right now. I have a family and some obligations. Non-title fight is ok for me next.

“I don’t need to have a time off. For me the best is to fight 3-4 times a year, stay in shape the whole time and develop my game all around. Couple of weeks of rest after the fight and I’m ready to train again.”
