On Saturday November 5th, Andrei Arlovski took on Travis Fulton at ProElite 2 in Moline, Illinois. The fight was the co-main event of the card, that featured an opening round of a heavyweight tournament, as well as a main event with another former UFC champion Tim Sylvia. The night’s fights were broadcast on HDNet.
Arlovski’s fight with Fulton was not a very exciting fight until the last second of the fight. Arlovski landed a beautiful headkick that knocked Fulton out cold as time was about to expire.
After the fight, Arlovski spoke to Matthew C. Scaro about the fight. Arlovski was very candid in his responses and acknowledged that his career has taken a bit of an offswing.
“I wouldn’t say I am back, just a second start. You know like a baby does little steps. Of course thank you God, thank you team and all my friends that came to support me. It was just what Greg Jackson and all my trainers wanted me to do. It was a little bit late, but that’s ok.”
Many have thought that the next logical fight for Arlovski would be to fight Tim Sylvia as both not only were victorious at ProElite, but also have a history during their time in the UFC.
“It’s up to ProElite (who I fight next). Everybody knows what’s gone on between me and Tim Sylva. I honestly don’t even think about that stuff. But this guy from Germany said he wanted to fight me because I didn’t say hi at the airport. I feel bad for that guy because that means he is miserable.
I really appreciate ProElite for this opportunity to rebuild my career. Like I said, it’s a second step. I feel like everything is going right right now. Right team, right coaches, right place to train. It’s up to ProElite who I fight next.”
