UFC Quick Quote: Andrei Arlovski is happy

''... I cannot win all my fights by knockout. I try to be a smart fighter. I will be a smart fighter. I followed the instructions of [boxing coach Mike Garcia], and he told me to keep my distance. I probably could have been better, but honestly, I'm very happy to get the win. Right now I'm a contender for a title shot in the heavyweight ranks. I'm very happy about that.''

-- Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski tells the Chicago Sun-Times that he is pleased with his performance -- unlike most viewers -- at UFC 70: "Nations Collide" against Fabricio Werdum, which the "Pitbull" won via unanimous decision, because it keeps him in line for a title shot.
