Strikeforce: Heavy Artillery Preview - Andrei Arlovski and Antonio Silva Talk About Their Match Up Andrei Arlovski: "When I fought Rogers I didn’t stick to my game plan and I didn’t take him seriously. So after that loss I just kept training and training and in November of 2009 I met with Greg Jackson and started training with him. I came back and trained in Chicago and then started working with Bob Cook and the guys at AKA Academy and then went back to Chicago. So I’ve had a lot of experience with different trainers. Everything happens for a reason and I’m more disciplined now. I’m definitely going to stick to my game plan. No more putting my hands down like I did against Rogers. I just can’t lose again. It’s very dramatic for me to lose fights and I want to climb back into the top. It’s going to be a very tough and important fight for me." Antonio "Big Foot" Silva: "You can expect a knock out or a submission from me on May 15. I’ve been concentrating on improving my strikes. I have a feeling this fight will not go to the end. I’m hoping that the fight stays standing up... I’ve been improving my hand speed a lot. This is a heavyweight fight and everyone has heavy hands. If Arlovski blinks he’ll get knocked out..."
