Arlovski was beating Fedor until he got floored. To state that he should not be able to get a UFC contract because he lost to a guy who was widely considered the best for a long period of time (despite what Dana would say) is a little out there no?
Arlovski was also the only guy to be cut from the UFC after a 3 fight WINNING streak.
His boxing is still crisp and his leg kicks have seemed to improve. No doubt his chin is questionable and he had a losing streak for a while there, but he's now on a 3 fight winning streak if you count the Sylvia fight.
He deserves to come back to the UFC with another win imo.

Could not agree more. How could the promotion not foresee problems with this rule?
Soccer kicks are almost only effective when your opponent is in trouble and you have that split second to capitalize when they don't know what's going on. You only have a split second to throw them before the opportunity has passed and you sure as hell don't have time to look at the ref for approval, wait for his decision, then look back at your opponent and throw the kick.
