Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski isn’t exactly happy with how he’s been promoted by a certain Russian media outlet.

The Belarusian brawler, who’s called the United States his home for some time now, recently appeared on a Russian show only to see them introduce him with a video of him being knocked out by Alistair Overeem.

Arlovski will face Shamil Abdurakhimov at Saturday’s (Sept. 15, 2018) UFC Moscow, the promotion’s debut on Russian soil. He was feeling a bit of favoritism in this media appearance.

In the video, Arlovski calls out the show for rooting for Russian fighters:

“We are live, right? OK, let’s just stop this interview. You are rooting only for the Russian fighters. Thank you, good bye.”

The former champ has seen better days in his decorated UFC career, having lost six of his last eight pro MMA bouts.

But it’s a bit misleading as well, as he only recently lost a close decision to Tai Tuivasa ar June’s UFC 225. The loss snapped a two-fight win streak, something he’ll be looking to rekindle in Moscow this weekend.

When he does, it doesn’t seem like he’ll have the backing of the Russian media behind him.

The former UFC heavyweight champion is slated to meet Shamil Abdurakhimov in a heavyweight bout at this upcoming event. The fight was first reported by MMAjunkie and later announced by Arlovski’s management on Instagram.

Arlovski is slated to make some history when he steps into the Octagon under the UFC banner for this bout as it will mark his 27th UFC heavyweight appearance.

As a result, this will tie fellow former UFC heavyweight champion  Frank Mir for the most fights in divisional history.

The only difference is the fact that he has the chance to separate from Mir for the most wins in the history of the weight class, with both currently at 16. Mir is currently under contract with the Viacom-owned promotion, Bellator MMA.

On the flip side, the Russian fighter has won three of his past four fights. By accepting this fight, he is slated to try to score the biggest win of his pro-MMA career against the former UFC heavyweight champion.
