If Andrei Arlovski Had Won…

without comments


I’m a fan of mixed martial arts fighting, and in a recent Affliction headline event there was a match between Andrei Arlovski and Fedor Emelianenko. Both are supremely talented fighters, but Fedor has all but assured himself of being one of the best ever, in the pantheon of the greatest.

Fedor is widely regarded as being the most feared heavyweight fighter out there today. However there was a bit of a jokeworthy problem lingering throughout. If he had lost this fight, some could argue that Viacheslav Datsik would now be the best in the world. This of course is foolish, but it is human nature for some people to use ‘linked lineage’ as a metric in fighting (i.e. Bruce Lee beat Chuck Norris, but I beat Chuck Norris at thumb wrestling so now i’m the toughest, etc).

For those of you who don’t know who Datsik is, he defies clear definition, as some think of him as a clown, and strange, elaborate joke… while others think of him as a strange, simple joke fueled by vodka and/or other narcotics.

Early in his career, a young Andrei Arlovski would lose to Datsik via knockout. Unfortunately for Arlovski, this loss also exposed to others that despite his gifts in the ring, he was cursed with somewhat of a glass jaw.

Today, Datsik is apparently whiling away in a Russian prison, convicted for a string of robberies from a chain of mobile phone stores. Without further ado, I present to you the glorious insanity that is Viacheslav Datsik.
