Andrei Arlovski Trains with Greg Jackson



Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski has begun training with renowned coach Greg Jackson at his academy in New Mexico as Arlovski looks to end a streak of back-to-back high-profile losses.

Arlovski of Chicago, Ill. flew out Friday to Albuquerque where he's been working out in the gym with UFC competitors the likes of Rashad Evans, Joe Stevenson and Clay Guida.

Arlovski won't be switching teams, as his week-long trip is simply for a change of pace to train with different talented partners and one of the most respected trainers in MMA.

In the video above shot with his manager Leo Khorlinsky, Arlovski works pads and footwork with Jackson and spars with Stevenson. Later in the hotel, Arlovski, laying on his hotel bed with ice packs on his foot and knee, reveals he tweaked his knee when he failed to tap against submission specialist Stevenson.

The 30-year-old free agent is coming off losses to Fedor Emelianenko and Brett Rogers and is expected to return sometime in December or early 2010.
