There are a lot of things worth noting in the video below, which features the legendary Russian heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko taking about three years off of former UFC champ Andrei Arlovski’s life in Affliction.
The first thing worth noting is that this was at the height of Fedor’s powers – he could literally kill a man at any time in a fight, regardless of what kind of damage he was taken.
The second thing is that this was when Arlovski’s chin was at its most fragile. Dude got slept a lot back then!
Finally, holy crap remember Affliction? So much money was sunk into a promotion that was around purely to screw the UFC. And look what happened to them.
Anyway, enjoy the trip down memory lane.
