Did Fedor knock Arlovski out?

I've been rewatching every angle of the Fedor vs Arlovski KO. It seems really apparent now that Fedor didn't connect on the jaw. I think the power of Fedor's hook pushed on Arlovski's shoulder and twisted him around, then Arlovski fell hard on the mat. You can see Arlivski lose his footing and see him hit the mat chin first.





Here's a link to the video. I'm having trouble embedding it with this damn smartphone.


Thoughts/opinions?

I see the point khoveraki is making and it is very hard to tell from this video what really happened there. I remember seeing this at the time though and i can remember doubting that Fedor him him flush on the chin.

Arlovski was out before he hit the floor. His hands dropped his and his hed fell all before he landed.

Even if he didn't, Arshotsky's chin is so fragile that even a strong shoulder strike KOs him.

I am looking for it, but I used to have a pic taken where you could see Arlovski still in the air and all his muscles are tensed up because he was out before his feet touched the ground. No matter what Fedor hit it KO'ed him in the air.

if u watch the slow motion shot of it, it clearly catches him right on the jaw, arlofski's momentum was moving forward and as soon as he was hit, he was out cold before he face smashed the mat.

it was a beautiful strike. fedor put his head down , arlovski goes for the knee, fedor cherry picks his chin outta thin air. good thing the second strike didnt hit him. or it woulda been left hand cemetery.
