Former UFC champ Andrei “Pitbull” Arlovski is set to take on the man widely considered to be the best pound for pound fighter in the world, WAMMA heavyweight champ Fedor “The Last Emperor” Emelianenko. The two MMA beasts will clash at Affliction: “Day of Reckoning” at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, on January 24.
Both these men are in preparation for what I consider to be the biggest fight of their careers. Fedor’s even canceled his scheduled press tour to spend time back home in Russia after having lost the world sambo championship. What we didn’t know though, was that Andrei has been working with a top-flight video production crew in Chicago assisting him in releasing a seven-part video series via his extremely popular website Arlovski.com, documenting his “Reckoning” training preparation.
“Arlovski 360: On the Road to Reckoning” has already gained sponsorship interest from Axe (would be their first entry into MMA) and other video-sharing website across the ‘net. The promo trailer is below, and is as strong a piece of interest-peaking as Arlovski is a fighter… rock solid Belarussian inspiration.
