Andrei Arlovski Confronts His Childhood on MTV’s “Bully Beatdown” Thursday

Fighters.com’s tenth-ranked heavyweight “Pitbull” Andrei Arlovski (14-7) will whoop a 6’4″, 280-pound bully called “Nathan, the Big Nasty” Thursday night at 9:30 PM EST on “Bully Beatdown” on MTV.

The experience was particularly sentimental to the former UFC champion because when Arlovski was a boy he was bullied and beat-up often.  Before the age of 14, Arlovski had never fought back. But in 1994, he had finally had enough and started lifting weights to put on muscle to help him deal with the bullies.  Two years later, Arlovski began training in Sambo.  By 2005, Arlovski had beaten “Maine-iac” Tim Sylvia (24-6) at UFC 51 for the UFC title.

Arlovski promised five submissions and a knockout on the program that pits neighborhood bullies versus professional fighters.
