Andrei Arlovski Played Russian Roulette

From Fighters.com:

Fighters.com’s tenth-ranked heavyweight “Pitbull” Andrei Arlovski (14-7) confessed Wednesday night to playing Russian roulette, a gamble during which a revolver is loaded with a single round, the cylinder spun, and then placed against the temple. The player pulls the trigger, chancing the bullet could end their life.

“First time I was 16, second time I was 30,” said the thirty-year old former UFC heavyweight champion. “It’s when you don’t care about anything.”

This is deadly serious.  He admits to breaking down and crying after his latest two losses, and now there's this self-destructive behavior.  The sports psychologist and the priest he visited back home seemed to help him, but he'll need much more than a few visits, especially since he wants to continue to train under Freddie Roach. If he wants to rebuild his status as a force in the heavyweight division, he should take as much time off as possible.  A dead fighter isn't good for anyone.
