"To be honest with you, I think it's a rumor and it's BS that he's gonna come back to the UFC first of all. Secondly, of course I would love for him to get in the UFC and fight him again to have a rematch. But if you're asking about if he's kind of old or not, I don't think so. Because I think a heavyweight's prime time is like 36 to like 40 I think. It's my opinion, I think it's the best prime time for the fighter. And Also you have a great example, Randy Couture. He fought, I guess till age 47. In boxing you've got George Foreman. And I think it's a good time for heavyweights, good age... I'm very excited [if he does come] and I promise you it's gonna be a really good fight. And I will do everything possible to pay him pack by KO. I'm going to knock his ass out... No more flying knees and I'm gonna do everything possible to knock him out. It was such a stupid move from my side when I jumped with the flying knee. Idiot."
-Andrei Arlovski talks to Submission Radio about the potential to get a rematch with Fedor Emelianenko should "The Last Emperor" make it to the UFC.
Penick's Analysis: Arlovski-Fedor II could be a very good fight to make should the UFC actually sign Emelianenko. It's still not a done deal as far as the UFC has stated, but it would make a lot of sense if Arlovski needs an opponent while waiting for Fabricio Werdum to fight Cain Velasquez again. If the UFC gets Emelianenko signed, this is as sensible a fight as any other they could make for the Russian MMA legend.
