Upset College Football Picks: Penn State and 5 Teams on Upset Alert in Week 3
UFC lightweight prospect Arman Tsarukyan has gone to the Evander Holyfield-Vitor Belfort Triller boxing card and believes the fights have been bad for the sport.
Arman Tsarukyan is in the midst of his preparation for his UFC Vegas 37 fight against Christos Giagos, but he had a lot to say after attending the latest Triller boxing event.
Tsarukyan was present with a few of his friends to bet on the Evander Holyfield-Vitor Belfort card and was not a fan of the product in the ring. During his pre-fight press conference, Tsarukyan explained his feelings after seeing older fighters such as Tito Ortiz and Holyfield get destroyed in the ring.
“For me, a professional fighter watching guys compete at 58, that’s bad,” Tsarukyan said. “If they’re there to make money, that’s great. But if they are only there to fight, it is not healthy.
“Their time has already passed, it’s bad for the sport.”

Holyfield got TKO just seconds after the first round of his fight with Belfort, a former UFC star and one of the greatest in MMA history. Holyfield, 58, returned to the ring on short notice after years of absence from the sport he once dominated as heavyweight champion.
Tsarukyan is looking for another big win as he moves up through the ranks of the lightweight division. He’s won three consecutive fights, including a unanimous decision victory over Matt Frevola at UFC 257.
Boxing world Triller continues to perplex combat sports fans around the world and Tsarukyan’s latest comments add fuel to the fire.
