Andrei Arlovski Says Working with Freddie Roach Was a Mistake
Posted by Larry Csonka on 03.18.2013



- Andrei Arlovski recently spoke about not working with Freddie Roach and staying at Jackson's MMA. Here are the highlights…

On Not Training With Freddie Roach: "I'm going to stick with Greg Jackson and other trainers from Greg Jackson's gym if I'm going to keep on fighting. I paid too much attention to boxing," he said. "I wanted to try professional boxing. That's why I didn't focus on wrestling and jiu-jitsu, and it hurt me."

On Training at Jackson's: "This is a camp that's much, much better than before," Arlovski said. "(There are) a lot of sparring partners, so I'm more than happy. It's good to have light heavyweights and heavyweights because they're not going to be too relaxed in the sparring or the wrestling sessions. You have to be ready all the time to do something or defend something. The last two weeks have been going very, very good for me because I spar a lot with Travis Browne and Jon Jones, and it definitely helped me a lot for my fight."

Reflecting on His Time With Roach: "Definitely I learned from Freddie, and he taught me some cool stuff," Arlovski said. "But at the same time, I was hurting my momentum in my MMA technique, and I had some problems with my other coaches. It was a good experience, but I'm not going to come back again to a boxing gym."
