MMA Quick Quote: Andrei Arlovski was ready to fight Kimbo Slice

andrei arlovski

"The fight went about the way that I expected, but my trainer wanted me to use my wrestling and jiu-jitsu skills more. They didn't want to see me on my back. It was a good stop for him. I was ready to go. I looked at the ref but it was over.... I will fight any opponent. I was ready to fight Kimbo when I heard Shamrock got hurt. It's a great honor for any of the fighters on tonight's card to fight on CBS. It was a great opportunity to fight for Affliction and Elite XC."

-- Andrei Arlovski shares his thoughts after he defeated Roy Nelson via second round technical knockout at Elite XC: "Heat" at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise. Fla., tonight. Ken Shamrock was scratched before the main event and Seth Petruzelli was brought in to replace him at the last minute. "The Silverback" stopped Slice in the opening seconds of round one. Go figure.
