When Andrei “Pit Bull” Arlovski left UFC for Affliction in 2008, he was considered to be hot on the comeback trail, and perhaps one of the sport’s fastest-rising stars — especially after ending Ben Rothwell’s 13-fight win streak in Affliction: Banned on July 19 of that year. But he had also ended a relationship with former Playboy model Patricia Mikula. And it wasn’t long before his downward spiral commenced.
Did beauty kill the beast? We’ll probably never know for sure. But we do know that Arlovski seems to have hit rock bottom recently, confessing to having played Russian Roulette, with live ammo, sometime during the past few months. Do we believe him? Probably.
