The sad part is that fight was so winnable for Arlovski, he just had to keep doing what he did in the first minute of the fight. Soften up Karitonov from the outside with punches & leg kicks, stick & move, stay off the fence, stay patient and don't trade with him. Just keep working away on him till the fight's over and win it on points or see if an opportunity opens up where he can use his hand speed to unload a fast hard combo.

But he didn't do that and got sucked into going shot for shot with Sergei, that's a sure way for him to lose a fight.
