Thursday’s UFC 191 media conference call had a very “Old School vs. New School” feel to it, as the four competitors that make up next weekend’s main and co-main event fights pressed pause on their final preparations to discuss their upcoming bouts.
Representing the “Old School” were co-main event participants Andrei Arlovski and Frank Mir — two former champions that have turned back the hands of time to return to title contention in 2015.
First expected to face each other nearly a decade ago, the veteran heavyweights are in the midst of equally unexpected and impressive revivals at the moment. During the call, the two spoke glowingly about each other, reflecting on their lengthy careers and the long, winding road that will lead them into the Octagon against one another at UFC 191.
