Andrei Arlovski Looks To Return To Top Ten Through Strikeforce Tourney

Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski was at one time near the top of the world heavyweight rankings but these days, finds himself on the outside looking in and with the announcement that he will be a participant in the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix, Arlovski feels that by winning the tournament he can make a case for his spot back in the top ten:

“Of course (I'll be watching Josh Barnett vs. Brett Rogers). Because Rogers knocked me out and it was embarrassing for me. But I'm looking forward, one step at a time.”

“What happened in my last three fights, I'm not going to give this present anymore, that's it. I'm looking forward to fight all of them. In this tournament (there is) pretty much all top ten fighters; this is really good opportunity for me and everybody else.”
