UFC books Arlovski’s farewell fight against some human blanket TBA

Well this has gone down just as I suspected. Andrei Arlovski has languished on the bench since April 2007. Zuffa wanted him to sign a new contract before he fought again. Arlovski’s people were determined that he fight first and then they’d sit down at the negotiation table and deal. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know what happened next: nothing. Neither side blinked, and nearly a year later it seems that Andrei is pissed the fuck off and the UFC is prepping to lose him.

What’s involved in that prepping? How about quietly booking Andrei for UFC82 and not making any mention of it. And how about putting him up against the fluffiest blanket in the UFC, Jake O’Brien? The first part has been done, but Jake is still a question mark on account of his spine being all fucked up.

But you see what the UFC is doing: exactly what I said they’d do back in September. I wish I could claim to be smart or some junk, but I only knew because they were doing the same thing to Brandon Vera when he was being ‘uncooperative’. Lets hope that like with Vera, things get worked out and this isn’t the end of Andrei in the UFC.

    It would be a fucking shame if AA leaves the UFC. I would about pissed the fuck off by now. They better sign him.

    Randy tied up in court till 2012
    Arlovski will get sick of the UFC’s shit
    Cro Cop will leave, unless he quits or decides to take a huge cut in pay. By the end of the year the HW division will once again suck

    can’t wait to see how Dana spins this shit for us..

    i assume something along the lines of, “o’brien is a real fuckin competitor with such and such fuckin wrestling credentials. He won a fuckin glorious decision over heath herring, one of the most respected heavyweights in the world and a pride veteran, to get this match. this match will be fuckin great and i cant wait to see what happens. i seriously can’t fuckin wait.’

    Lifer, that actually is a pretty damn good impression.

    My favorite is making fun of Bruce Buffer.

    Iiiiiiiiittttttttssssssss Tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimmmmmmeeeee!

    Bruce: Hey Michael, lets get ready to rumble really gets the crowd pumped. Can you help me think of a catch phrase.

    Michael: Well, you could always just yell its time.

    Bruce: Thats perfect!

    I hope Arlovski actually tears out Jake O’Brien’s skull and spine, a la Mortal Kombat, and tosses it over the cage into a horrified Dana White’s lap, then runs out of the arena screaming “Fedor, I will drink your blood!” in Russian….

    BTW – who’s the figure skater in that pic?

  • Higgz

    I hope he does leave the UFC. And maybe if he gains a couple hundred pounds or gets AIDS or something he’ll be freakish enough to fight Fedor.

  • Mobb Deep

    It would be a shame if Arlovski was gone. I think the UFC wants him to lose so they could pay him less. But I think Arlovski will have no problem in taking O’Brien/McCully’s head off.

    big mistake if he leaves…bottom line!

  • ilostmydog

    Talk about reaching. He hasn’t officially even been added to the card yet it’s being called ‘quietly booking him without mentioning it.’ People are just looking for things to try and criticize now. If this rumor is even true, it’s not even notable because about nine times out of ten, the MMA media knows a fight is happening well before Zuffa announces it.

  • islandguy

    “It’s Tiiime” is such a piss poor catch phrase / fight starter compared to “let’s get ready to rumblllllllllllle”. You think Michael would do a bit more to help out his own brother.

    Anyhow, good analysis phyte-licker, that is exactly what is going on, poor Andre has become the UFC latest un-person. His photos will all start gradually fading away and leaving nothing but a fuzzy background and giggling ring-girls. His videos will all soon be gone from UFC on demand.. Too bad.

    Could backfire on Dana if a pissed off Arlovski knocks him the fuck out in 30 seconds celebrates and waves goodbye to the fans.

  • suspiria
