The loss bothers me, it hurts me. I have to do something about this. (Brett Rogers) had a good record, but I thought he was not the top like Fedor or Barnett. It was my mistake and when you make a mistake you have to pay for it. I took Rogers seriously, but I didn't think the fight would have been this situation. I focused too much on boxing and not enough on the wrestling and jiu-jitsu. It wasn't right. It's another thing I have to think about. MMA is not boxing. I have to change something. I don't understand this question about my chin. When you open your face for four or five punches it doesn't matter your chin, you will get KOed. Rogers was great, he did what he did. I took the fight and I got my ass kicked, it's that simple. It's embarrassing, but what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I have to move on. I'm definitely going to come back.
Andrei Arlovski via live video chat reflects on his devastating loss to Brett Rogers at Strikeforce: 'Lawler vs. Shields' last Saturday (June 6) from the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri. "The Pitbull" lasted only 22 seconds against "The Grimm," who pushes his record to 10-0 while Arlovski tries to rebound from his second straight KO defeat. He was also put down by Fedor Emelianenko at Affliction: 'Day of Reckoning' back on January 24. He plans to fight again before the year is through but the question now is, where does he go from here?
