But yeah, nobody is better at punching from the gaurd than Fedor.
Well, in fairness, I haven't seen Fedor attempt to finish many (if any) fights on his feet. I agree that he's not a knockout artist, but I've seen him throw leather as fast as any fighter I've ever seen. He's not as precise as Arlovski (precision has a lot to do with being a KO artist IMO), but I wouldn't say he isn't as fast or as powerful.

AA also depends on his stand-up alot more, where as Fedor tends to rely more on his Sambo background. So I would say that AA is the more refined striker of the two, and judging from body types alone, one would say he is more athletic. But I wouldn't put my money on Arlovski in a fight against Fedor or Barnett.

This is just my opinion, of course.

In Guard Fedor is the most dangerous man on the planet. However standing Fedor is not even close to as explosive as Arlovski.

Very true. Fedor can throw some leather, as seen in the Goodridge, Zulu, and Cro Cop fights, along with others. But he's not on AA's level standing.

Also, Fedor has broken his hand several times and doesn't rely on striking very much because of it.

For anyone that knows a thing or two about Fedor you'd no hes 28-1 and should be 29-0. I don't think hes gunna come and lose to Slyvia.
