I made contact with Andrei Arlovski about interviewing him on my show, he referred me to his agent. After speaking with his agent he asked me if I would like to come onto his Live video chat on Google Hangouts and interview him on that.

So I have 2 questions to ask my fellow PG'ers.

1. As any one used Google hangouts? (Ive never heard of it to now) Is it easy to use, any advice would be helpful.

2. Is there any questions you would like me to ask Andrei?

Haven't used it before.

Questions to ask him:

How much longer does he see himself fighting for?
How good it felt to soccer kick Sylvia, then hear that it was ruled a dq?

Hangouts is group video chat. I've never used it, but to my understanding, it's easy to use.

edit: Question - Following the soccer kick, what were Andrei and Tim talking about while the judges were mulling over the decision?

1. Have you ever heard of the mmaplayground?

2. What is your opinion on Jon Jones

3. If the UFC were to propose you going on a season of TUF to get back in, would you be open to that?



All I got for now

I think he may be insulted if you ask about tuf because he's a really prideful guy

1. Does he have any prefight rituals?
2. Does he have a particular meal he prefers to eat before fights? what about after fights?
3. Who is the strongest fighter he ever fought or trained with?
4. Does he own any pitbulls?
5. Does AA know that I love him & that he is totally invited over to my house whenever he likes?

4. Does he own any pitbulls?



Unless something happened in the last year or two, I can actually answer this. His name is Maximus.

- how does it feel to be the only person to beat Nelson by stoppage?
- when the fight was over, did he anticipate that he put an end to Fulton fighting 20x a year?
- when is AA vs Sylvia V?
- how has Jackson's camp help improve his game?

- If he could fight any fighter from any era or sport who would it be?
- What does he consider his biggest win?
- Who was his toughest fight?
- What's his guilty pleasure? (Chocolate? Video Games? Anything like that.)
- What are his goals after fighting?

Good luck with the interview Ray. Id like to add the question:

Has he been approached to fight Daniel Cormier now that Mir is out? If not, would he accept the fight if he was offered?

Maybe.

But it's a legitimate question wouldn't you say?

Man it would be good to get a question that goes into the reasons for his relative demise without insulting him. I'd like to know what happened to him mentally after the Fedor fight, he hasn't fought the same since imo.

Most of the questions that I was thinking of have already been said. All I can think of right now

- Would he be interested in taking the Cormier fight if offered.
- Will he be fighting in ONEFC again anytime soon?
- Are you interested in going back to the UFC or are you happy with fighting other places
- If he will ever grow his mullet back

I would be interested in knowing about his aborted attempt to enter the boxing world. Why didn't he pursue a career there? Does he think it hurt his MMA career to have that as a distraction? If he was 20 years old would he be charting a career in MMA or would he have chosen boxing instead?

Ive just spoken with Andrei's agent, he has told me this will be Andrei's first interview since the story broke about who is fighting next.

If you would like to watch me interview Andrei it is tomorrow (Wednesday 26/09/12) at 7pm ET.

Here is the link

Also keep the questions coming, I have a 20 min slot.

Ask AA who he believes is the greatest HW of all time is ?
Also, ask him who in the UFC HW division today would he like to fight if the UFC were to ever invite him back to fight there ?
