Andrei Arlovski returns at UFC Singapore


Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski will look to get one step closer to holding the title again when he fights fellow former champion Frank Mir at UFC 191, going down tonight in Las Vegas.

Ahead of the fight Arlovski’s coach, Greg Jackson, spoke with the Three Amigos Podcast about the heavyweight and what it’s like working with him everyday.

Jackson had nothing but great things to say about the vet, calling him a great guy and one of his best friends.

Check out what he had to say:

He’s just a great guy and one of my best friends, but I love his toughness most of all. He’ll do whatever it takes. He’ll grind. If I told him to jump off a cliff at three in the morning, he’ll be there doing it. He’s a total samurai and I respect that. He’s of the mindset that if this is what we have to do to win, then that’s what we have to do. He never complains, never bitches and moans. He just gets in there and does it. Andrei’s a guy you wouldn’t mind kicking down a door with, at all.”

Who are you rooting for tonight, Arlovski or Mir?
