The Fight Nerd spoke with Andrei “The Pitbull” Arlovski recently about his participation in the opening round of the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix. Arlovski discussed his streak of losses, why he thinks his opponent Sergei Kharitonov is so evenly matched with him, and who he expects to meet in the finals. One thing I immediately noted when doing this interview was how negative Arlovski was about himself. It wasn’t that he was tired, he just seemed mentally gone, and this interview was done about two weeks ago! Arlovski mentioned he is training at a new place now so if that particular trainer can not salvage Arlovski both mentally and physically, this Saturday might be the last we see of him in Strikeforce sadly.
