From the moment this video declares Fedor-Arlovski to be the most anticipated heavyweight bout in MMA history, for the "undisputed" heavyweight title, you know what you’re getting into. Still, the look of the video is impressive for a DIY internet effort. It rips off all the cool things about the HBO 24/7 series, though since they spend the entire time pumping up Arlovski it reaches none of the emotional depth.
Oh well. It’s still the best promotional tool we’ve seen yet for this fight that’s just over a month away. If Affliction’s not embarrassed by that, they should be.
After the jump, Frank Mir gets deep, plus a little something extra that you may hate me for, but it’s for your own good.
A Zen-like Mir tells us (at the 4:07 mark) that "fights truly are won in your soul."
To help you get ready for the Cro Cop-Hong Man Choi bout on New Year’s Eve, take a look back at the worst kickboxing match ever: Hong Man Choi vs. Bob Sapp. Sapp has the cardio of a goldfish and Choi has the coordination of an infant, and together they make something magically bad. I’m sorry (no I’m not).
