Arlovski: ‘I still have nightmares about Fedor’


“My nightmare is fuckin’ when Emelianenko knocked my ass out in Affliction. You know it’s ridiculous. It was so far back, and four years ago it was the biggest fight of my life and you know I fought like…..I don’t know…like….I just have bad words. I just, I did what I wasn’t supposed to do and I just, and I jumped this flying knee, I gave him a present. First of all because the fight before when I fought Ben Rothwell I jumped with a flying knee and I hurt Ben Rothwell. People went crazy, and you know for some reason I thought I can like do like anything that I want; I can throw elbows, knees, you know. And I jumped with a flying knee when I fought Emelianenko and I didn’t cover myself, you know just lights out. John McCarthy woke me up and I was, that’s it. But the first four minutes I felt that every kick, every punch got the target. I saw he was hurt. I just needed to, at that time I just needed to stick to the game plan [for the] first or second round and I [would’ve] whooped his ass definitely. But it is what it is, fact that he knocked my ass out and I lost that fight.”

In a new interview with Submission Radio, Andrei Arlovski discussed his fight with Fedor Emelianenko, where he got KO’d in the first round.
