Man, Tim wanted back into the UFC not long ago. He looked awful.

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.

in the interest of consistency, and fighter safety, I say ditch the soccer kicks. GnP could have been just as effective in that situation.

soccer kicks rule. I mean imagine if shogun could have thrown a few in the vera fight...


I know soccer kicks are dangerous but i just think its makes mma a little more "real life". Obviously, it is a sport and there needs to be precautions.. I dont disagree with not having them but im definitely in favor of having them!

I'm not saying he doesn't deserve it or that a loss to Fedor means you shouldn't be in the UFC. I'm just telling you Dana is not going to sign anyone who has lost to Fedor.

I'm all for soccer kicks but come on, either have them or don't have them. None of this asking permission bullshit!

Yeah, they either need to allow it or not. That is what puzzled me about the results. In the past they've allowed soccer kicks.

No Contest (dumbest rule in history) is the outcome for this fight on wikipedia.
