Andre Arlovski went from being one of the most feared heavyweight champs the Octagon ever saw, to a fighter you feared watching because you didn’t want to see him keep getting KO’d so badly (and he was getting KO’d pretty badly for a while there). But he eventually bounced back, and returned to the UFC for a fresh (and improbable) run at the title.
It didn’t pan out for him, and now you have to wonder how loud the ticking of the clock rings in his ears, telling him it’s time to hang up the gloves.
Regardless, he’s fighting on Saturday at UFC on FOX 23, the salty veteran taking on the young, spry up-and-comer in Francis Ngannou. Ngannou has more than enough power to put Arlovski to sleep, so we’ll see how bad we feel after the dust settles on this one.
In the meantime, here’s a video the UFC put together about the ex-champ.
