Recently while talking to MMA Junkie about his future in fighting, Arlvoski revealed that he hopes to fight for several more years yet.
“Best-case scenario, (I want to keep doing this for) maybe four, five more years,” Arlovski told MMA Junkie during a recent visit to American Top Team. “We’ll see. I still have, like, at age 40, I’m training more than I used to train when I was 25. Every morning, when I wake up in camp, I remember what I want. I want to be champion of the world again.
“I got a few losses right now, I think it’s like 50-50, but fact is I lost a couple of fights and I’m just in the beginning of my way again.”
Arlovski (27-18) is coming off a split decision loss to Walt Harris in December and has lost three of his last five fights.
