Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) December 17, 2008 -
Beginning December 19th and airing every Friday for six consecutive weeks thereafter on Arlovski.com (http://www.arlovski.com), Arlovski 360: On the Road to Reckoning will use professional high definition documentary techniques to capture Arlovski, the noble warrior in an unflinching close-up as he prepares for Affliction: Day of Reckoning - the most important mixed martial arts bout of his life versus current WAMMA Heavyweight Champion Fedor Emelianenko at the Honda Center on January 24, 2009. The event will air live on ShowTime pay-per-view.
"MMA fanatics will drool over 360's unprecedented look at Arlovski's training regimen and casual fans will gain insight into the charitable soul underneath his Spartan exterior," says Arlovski 360 executive producer Lana Goldshteyn. She goes on to say, "The video series will highlight aspects of the fighter's life that have endeared him to fans across the world: his drive, his courage, his brotherly spirit and his uniquely American story."
"The (film) crew is coming to film and see my life because this is the most important fight of my career. I want viewers and fans to understand what mixed martial arts fighters go through to prepare for a fight. I also want to be able to answer questions on my life that I usually don't discuss," says Arlovski.
