Arlovski: I want to be the UFC heavyweight champion again
“I left the UFC on good terms,” Arlovski told MMAWeekly.com.
Arlovski doesn’t want his former status as UFC champion to dictate if the organization offers him a contract in the future. He wants to earn his way back into the top tier of the heavyweight division.
“I don’t want the UFC to take me back in the UFC because I was a champion in the UFC. I want to earn the opportunity to be back in the UFC again,” he said.
“More importantly, with my career, every fight I’ve shown a good fight, and showed my skills, and showed that I’m getting better and better and better from fight to fight. Like I said, you never know. I might one day be in the UFC again, but I definitely want to be a champion and I want to be No. 1 in the world again because I know the taste of glory and the taste of being on top of the world. I also know that feeling when you’re down,” said Arlovski.
