UFC star Andrei Arlovski — the former heavyweight champion — says he has NO PLANS to retire at age 42 … and wants to keep bangin’ away until he’s 45!!!!
Arlovski made his UFC debut at UFC 28 back in 2000 — 21 YEARS AGO — and has been fighting consistently ever since.
He won the UFC heavyweight title in 2005 — and has been in wars with superstars like Francis Ngannou, Stipe Miocic, Frank Mir, Stefan Struve, Alistair Overeem … you get the picture.
But, Arlovski’s coming off a 2nd round loss to 27-year-old Tom Aspinall — his 10th loss in his last 16 fights — begging the question … is he considering hangin’ up his gloves???
“Oh, f**k no,” Arlovski told us while out shopping in Beverly Hills … “If the UFC doesn’t kick me out, [I’d like to fight] probably like 2, 3 more years. We’ll see. Why not?”
In fact, Arlovski is still calling for tough opponents — “Someone tough and young!”
By the way, since Andrei has fought both Stipe and Ngannou — we asked for his prediction on who will win that massive heavyweight title fight at UFC 260 later this month.
Ya gotta hear who Andrei’s rolling with and why … it’s great insight from a dude who knows what both men are capable of.
