Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski heads back into the cage this Saturday at World Series of Fighting 5, but the goal he has had since the day began fighting still remains the same, to become a champion. The only road back to a possible title shot goes through Mike Kyle on Saturday night in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and with Arlovski closer to the end of his career than he is the beginning, this is a must win.
Arlovski told MMAJunkie
“I have only one personal goal: a champion’s belt around my waist, and that’s it. I will do everything possible to be champion again, and I will do everything possible. That’s why I train with Greg Jackson and other top fighters in MMA. Greg and other coaches helps me every day to reach my goal. I understand I have a long, long way, but every day, I’m taking a step. Another big step is fighting against Mike Kyle.”
“It’s the main goal. UFC has the best heavyweight division right now. But my first step is a victory over Mike, so I’m looking forward to Sept. 14, and we’ll see what happens after. But the UFC is the best organization in MMA right now.”
