Chest, but keeping an eye on the person as a whole and the direction of their ENTIRE movement doesn't hurt.

More at the hips and midesection area becuase usually the hips move when a punch or kick is thrown, but when fighting a guy like arlovski who is fast and explosive, this won't work.

In football you look at the persons waist but no big deal

I look at the whole body when I can, but mostly shoulders and hips I concentrate on standing-up. When I punch to the head I look where is his head though and when I punch to the body I look at his shoulders (so not looking at where the punch is landing).

chest because if you lick into their eyes you wont be able to see punches and kicks coming.

I think you have to constantly look all over. Some fighters can tell you their next move if you look at their eyes, some their hands, waist, mid-section, etc.

I look into the future. That way I can anticipate their moves with ease.

Actually, usually I do this even before the fight. I will simply find out where they will step when the fight begins, and will arrange for a piano, 50 tonne weight or elephant to drop onto the spot where they will be.

Sometimes, to toy with them first, I set up a few dozen rakes for them to stand on, before the coup de grace.

I'd say keep your eyes on all of the opponents body as a whole.
