Well remember that this is probably one of the more ambitious attempts that Strikeforce has put together. They basically put all of their heavyweights into this tournament if you include the alternate fights. Name another weightclass they could do this with!

silva is bigger and that's where his advantages end. He's actually kinda clumsy too.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

That's Silva on the left, punching Arlovski in the face. He's a HW, just like Fedor, and he is going to be fighting Fedor in the first round of the HW Grand Prix on Saturday.
Who hasn't punched AA in the face, his "weak chin" can be directly linked to the fact that he does not keep his hands up....not a great reference photo.....

Yeah, Arlovski doesn't fight smart. But remember you either have a strong chin that progressively gets weaker or you always have a glass chin. Arlovski has always had a weak chin!

Anyone who doesn't protect their face in the HW division will end up that night having a weak chin........

Arlovski has never had this super weak chin. He has somewhat shit defense which lets him get hit in the face to much but Rizzo and Ricco Rodriguez were two of the top guys in the divsion when they knocked out Arlovski, heck Ricco was a 6'4" 265 pound monster as was Rogers. Hell Rizzo had knocked out Barnett less than a year earlier and fought Randy Couture twice for the HW belt. Who else really knocked Arlovski out? Tim Sylvia who was a legit killer than not the punchline he has become and Fedor. Arlovski has an average chin his problem has been he is a fighter who tends to keep it standing and does not protect himself as much as he should. Fortunately for him he is fighting tonight a less athletic striker who leaves himself equally open. Arlovski is knocking Kharintinov into obscurity tonight.

Well I have to agree that both guys leave themselves equally open. This is a matter of who gets the first punch in. They both have the potential to do it but who gets it is the question!

Thank you Ryan for taking the time to write it all out, you are totally correct and I couldnt agree more....I'm not so much about people having weak chins as much as weak defense.....

I still have to take Fedor and think he should win the stand up and be able to keep the fight standing.

Yeah, after his fight with Werdum he is going to be cautious. Another advantage is that if Fedor stays really close within Bigfoot's reach he will have no power and not be able to get any punches in on Fedor. He might be able to get some knees!
