UFC Quick Quote: Sorry morons, but Andrei Arlovski does not have a glass jaw

Esther Lin

Even though it broke at World Series of Fighting (WSOF) 2.

"I don't have to prove anything. I'm fighting for myself, my fans and my family. I think I'm above this whole concept of proving something, especially to all those morons who said ‘Oh, he has a glass chin,' ‘Andrei Arlovski should retire' and so on. When I fought Anthony Johnson, some idiot of a referee literally fell asleep on the clock, which cost me a broken jaw in two places. I continued to fight for two rounds. That alone puts me in the position where I don't have to prove anything. At this stage of my career, I'm fighting for myself and anyone who supports me, win or lose. I want to be a champion again and will work hard to achieve my goals."

After six long years, former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight titleholder Andrei Arlovski will finally make his return to the Octagon, when he takes on Brendan Schaub at the UFC 174: "Johnson vs. Bagautinov" pay-per-view (PPV) event on Saturday night (June 14, 2014) in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada (full preview here). Arlovski (21-10) tells Sherdog.com he isn't paying any attention to the "morons" who accuse him of having a glass jaw, and points to his slugfest against Anthony Johnson in March 2013 as proof. Ironically, he's facing a fighter of similar criticism, as Schaub (10-3) has been knocked clean out in all three of his UFC losses. Anyone think this 265-pound showdown (results here) somehow makes it to the judges' scorecards?
