Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Andrei Arlovski has hired weight management specialist Louis “Loutrition” Giordano for his Main Event against Alistair Overeem at UFC Fight Night 87.
Arlovski released a statement via KingLevCommunications:
“Louis has certainly made a name for himself due to his work with former welterweight champion Johny Hendricks, light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and many other fighters over the course of the past year. I was able to learn about “Loutrition” firsthand because he was in New Mexico the past 10 weeks working with Jon. It didn’t take long to make the decision to have Lou start managing my weight properly.”
Giordano has been working with a host of UFC fighters including; Johny Hendricks, Aljamain Sterling and most recently, Jon Jones. The weight management specialist expressed his delighted with the partnership, after meeting Arlovski whilst managing Jon Jones weigh-cut for his victorious interim title bout last Saturday at UFC 197 .
““I was able to get to know Andrei during my time in New Mexico. He’s a legend, one of the best heavyweights and a former UFC heavyweight champion. I am honored once again to work with someone the caliber of Andrei. I’ll spend more time in Albuquerque now that I’ll be assisting Andrei. Then I’ll go home for a day and travel to Rotterdam with Andrei. This is an experience I’m sure I’ll never forget.”
Arlvoski vs. Overeem takes place May 8 in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
