Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski will appear on an upcoming episode of the Jerry Springer show as a "Celebrity Guest Bouncer," according to a recent press release.
And no he is not there to reprise the role of Steve Wilkos.
"The Pitbull" will promote on of his biggest sponsors, SOYO (an innovative provider of computer and consumer electronics products).
During the episode, which will air tomorrow (Wednesday), September 26, 2007, a lucky audience member will be randomly chosen to receive a 42" Pit Bull Series SOYO LCD HDTV.
Here's a snip from the champ:
"I love Chicago and did not know Jerry Springer filmed here. When I was asked to be a special guest on the show, it sounded like it could be fun for me and my fans. I am glad to see that SOYO got to participate in the fun as well and Jerry gave away one of my Pit Bull Series TVs as well."
Arlovski has not competed since his unanimous decision win over Fabricio Werdum at UFC 70 in April. It has been reported that contract negotiations (he has one fight remaining on his current deal) have kept him on the sidelines for the better part of 2007.
Check local listings for times and channels to catch Arlovski on Jerry Springer tomorrow.
