Arlovski is the UFC version of Cro Cop.

Arlovski seemed to think he could out strike Sergei which is wrong instead he needed to pick and move, which he was doing at the start but towards the end he started to brawl and Sergei caught him a few times which shook him up so Andrei I would say needs to consider retirement which is unfortunate to say about a man who was once a legend of the sport

AA definitely has some issues, but lets give Kharitonov some credit here. He had a really good gameplan. He had obviously decided that he could afford to take 2-3 punches to give one, and he would get to AA eventually, and it worked perfectly. He planned to walk right through him and he did, it was well done by him, it was just the right way to fight AA.

AA is obviously no longer capable of hanging with upper level fighters, physically or mentally. He is just too chinney, and can't adjust his game to protect his weak chin.

If anyone else got KO'd by Sergei no-one would ever question that persons chin, they would just have been KO'd by someone who lands HARD.

His last fight vs Big Foot where he looked poor but wasn't rocked at all people then came out saying his chin is fine and he's recovered, now he gets KO'd by someone with seriously heavy hands and fickle fans are right on his back again.

His main concern in this fight was not to lose.
It's not all about chin: the Fedor KO and Rogers KO are vicious. No fighter would have been able to *survive* thos punches.
And against Silva he took some powerful punches and didn't go down.

Arlovski's problem is his mind.
And it spread like a virus thru his body and it seems like he forgets to think.
His ring movement is messed up, his head movement, his hands are too low. Everything is fuc*ed up for him.

He needs to fight some D-level cans and get some confidence back.
If not, hang the gloves!

Become an actor or whateva!
I was thinking along similar lines.

However I do believe his chin is suspect. He was KOed by GnP. I think what he needs the most is a new game plan.

Dude has good stand up technique, and a legit ground game. I think he needs to grind a few out and get his mind right before fighting the best guys he can get his hands on. Look at his record. Fedor, Rogers (what the hell happened there!), Silva, then Kharitonov. He definitely needs a step down in competition.

Give him some of the lesser guys Strikeforce peddles as the early fights on a card. Its better than losing over and over again because he can't hang.

Bingo. Arlovski was doing pretty well for the first minute or so when he was using his footwork and speed hit Kharitonov from the outside while keeping his back off the fence. Then for whatever reason he stopped circling to the center of the cage and let Kharitonov back him up against the fence and pin him there, and once he started doing that it was game over.

I was yelling in my mind...STICK AND MOVE...CIRCLE...STICK AND MOVE...GET OUT OF THERE. It was like he knew the end was coming and he just stood there.

I dunno he doesn't have the look on his demeanor anymore of a fighter who wants it. I can't blame em cuz he's had a preciptous fall in his MMA career. Sucks to see him get KOed like that along with Fedor. Somebody mentioned that he's the Crocop of SF.

At least with Fedor even though he was the smaller fighter yet he went after Big Silva and went BALLZ OUT!!!

Check out the post fight SF interviews.

As often as AA has gotten KO'ed, I wouldn't be surprised if he gets pugilistic dementia.

It also amazes me that, for someone who focuses on boxing in his traiing camps, how terrible his boxing is, and how mentally fragile he seems.

AA needs to relocate, take some time off, and regroup. He used to be one of my favorite fighters, and watching him get his ass kicked consistently isn't fun.

Man that was just sad. If he can't take a punch it kinda defeats the purpose.
