Andrei Arlovski Emerges Once Again with Strikeforce

May 15th in St.Louis, MI, Andrei the ‘Pitbull’ Arlovski will re-surface on a Strikeforce event where he will begin a come back, first meeting Antonio Silva (12-2).  Arlovski (15-7-0) despite a rocky couple of years, has an enormous fan base on both sides of the pond.  Like many fighters, Arlovski following a long winning streak, ( 5 wins between Oct of 2008 and Dec of 2006) had a few devastating losses.
Arlovski changed his focus about 3 years and took a stab at professional boxing.  This misdirected use of his energy, to many who have followed his career, was a gross mis-management of a super-athlete who was developing into a great MMA practitioner.  Arlovski’s 16 month multi-fight contract with Strikeforce will hopefully give him the motivation he needs to stay focused on the sport of MMA; along with the guidance of his long time, loyal MMA/BJJ coach DIno Costeas.
