Video: Andrei Arlovski Is The Best Bully Beater Ever

I think if I was “Big Nasty” and I had agreed to go on “Bully Beatdown,” I might allow myself a solemn moment of self-pity when they announced that I’d be facing Andrei Arlovski.  If he saw season one of the show, this bully was probably expecting some mediocre heavyweight, maybe someone with a record barely above .500.  He certainly could not have been expecting a former UFC heavyweight champ, but dammit, Arlovski heard those victims’ tales of bullying woe, and he came to help.

If you’re wondering how authentic this stuff is, you should check out the October issue of Fight Magazine, where editor Donovan Craig goes behind the scenes of this show and watches the Arlovski beatdown live.  After getting KO’d in a little over thirty seconds, this bully seemed, shall we say, humbled.  As the doctors checked him out backstage and the show’s producers questioned him about his experience, he summed it up thusly:

“Ya’ll are mean, dawg. …When I heard them say Andrei Arlovski…I thought it was a joke. …That was fucked up.”

Yes, Big Nasty.  From your perspective, it must have seemed so.  From ours, it was quality entertainment.

"Let's see how good your chin is tough guy"

Ohhhhhh the irony.

The first episode in season 2 had Eddie Alvarez. He's higher ranked in his division.

Honestly this is the episode that has made me decide to stop watching the show. The fake bullies was bad enough. But now with those rave kids that obviosly deserve to get bullied and the horribly depresing sight if Arlovski reduced to such a pitiful gig mugging for the camera on a fake MTV show I've decided that I've seen enough.

Cest la vie.

Bring back AA please. He's a lot better for the UFC than Brandon "The Toof" D Bag Vera. I hate Vera. Also, why do I like Miller? I always want him to win even though he is a Emo. (Not even sure what Emo means but I know he qulaifies)

These "victims" are soooo embarassing, probably I would bully them, too...

@ Clyde, totally thought the same thing when I heard the chin thing..

I like how when Arlovski says he's heard enough, while the guy said something about how Big Nasty moved into his house and knocked sister up. So they're technically related.. and it makes me wonder what the F is going on here.

What a joke.

The "bully" should be taken outta there on a stretcher. Now, he gets to say he went three rounds with Arlovski and was none the worst for wear. Either go all out or don't go. This pulling punches shit is stupid.

Being a scripted show, they should be able to find someone who's willing to actually fight a declining martial artist.

Next episode: The victim Tom Atencio, The bully Dana White, The fighter Bas Rutten

God, I love this show. What a great concept; find people who deserve an ass kicking, and pay someone to kick their ass.

Plus Arlovski questioning someone's chin is priceless.
LukeTheDuke- September 22, 2009 at 5:51 am
It would be better if they trained the victims for like 2 months "unbeknownst" to the bullies and had them "fight" eachother. AA please don't stop fighting.

Y'all know it's fake, right?

The big guy is someone paid to take a bit of a beating and do a bit of acting. Same with the 2 weenies. They all did a good job with their acting, imho.
M1-Grovel- September 21, 2009 at 11:59 pm
you think this show is real and not scripted?

Nealio- September 21, 2009 at 8:38 pm
1. I can't believe a show like this even exists in the age where people sue for anything
2. I can't believe a show like this is on MTV !!!!

At the very end of the episode it looks kinda like alessio sakara ko'ing some dude with a head kick. When did UFC let him go.
omunto- September 21, 2009 at 6:52 pm
"that's enough"

That shit reminded me of Eastern Promises. Arlovski sill manages to scare me even with his glass chin.
Sheps- September 21, 2009 at 6:04 pm
Would have been better If Arlovski said "Let's see how good your chin is, tough guy. You taste my pee pee pee"

Oh how the mighty have fallen, Arlovski went from fighting the best fighter on the planet, to a nobody power puncher and now to some fat flabby actor who has never fought a day in his life.

The last time I saw someones career plummet that fast they were on board the Space Shuttle Columbia.

Nathan earned the nickname Big Nasty, with his jump shot.
virpz- September 21, 2009 at 5:29 pm
Ca any of u imagine what would happen if Arlovisk got knocked out by that bully ? Wow big time
BeaverLord- September 21, 2009 at 5:23 pm
God damnit. I live in the 626 area. How embarrassing.
Zero Cool- September 21, 2009 at 5:19 pm

Please bring AA back to the UFC!!!
