After suffering two devastating first-round losses, Andrei Arlovski is looking to change things up. The former UFC heavyweight champion has been training with renowned coach Greg Jackson at his camp in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Arlovski will be spending a week at Jackson’s facility, where he’s training with top UFC fighters like Rashad Evans, Joe Stevenson and Clay Guida.
Arlovski had recently admitted to being depressed after his recent losses – one to Brett Rodgers at a Strikeforce event in June, the other to Russian heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko at an Affliction M-1 Global event in January. After his second loss, Arlovski returned to his home in Belarus to spend time with family, and reconsider his future ambitions.
“I cried a lot after my fights, you know,” Arlovski had told Fighters.com. “When I lost to Fedor, I cried. When I lost to Rogers, I cried.”.
After his week-long stint at Jackson’s camp, Arlovski will fly back to Chicago, Ill. to return to his regular training routine. He is looking to make a comeback later this year or early 2010.
