What exactly is Arlovski's strategy?
 
Does he think he has an iron chin and can stand and pound with people? He could easily win on points if he kept moving after strikes.

He just fights stupid now. He needs to retire because his chin is very weak at this point. He was winning that fight once again until he got tagged.

It's not really that Andre's chin is bad, but rather that he is 1) horribly predictable and 2) cannot shake old habits.

Andre always leaves his hands down after throwing strikes and always backs away from pressure in a straight line. If anyone puts and pressure on him he completely crumbles mentally. His chin is still good but he has just failed to learn anything from his last four bouts.

Aww..AA....I like the dude...he's still trying to go and knock guys out but just can't take a punch.

And no, his chin is not fine.

Someone needs to watch his first UFC fight against Pedro Rizzo.

He was knocked pretty much out cold by a left jab.

Arlovski is done!
Mentally!

Listening to him before this fight: he mentioned his 3 recent losses 3 times in a 6 minutes interview.
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!

His mind is fine, his chin is the problem, he looked great against fedor, the dude tonight, but once they tapped the chin it was lights out. Maybe if he got rid of those stupid twilight teeth things he wears and switch to a real mount guard he would be fine.

Anyone getting hit like Arlovksi in the Fedor and Rogers fight would have gone to sleep just like Arlovski.

It's his guard! If you have a solid guard, that protects your chin = no problem for chin.

hey both silva and fedor love dropping there hands while getting hit and they do fine. His chin is gone just like chuck.

Arlovski has bad movement. He got pinned to the fence so many times. I knew it was a matter of time.

He had to stick and move or attempt take downs to keep em guessing. Sergei was plodding along just waiting for that one big shot. Man today was a sad day because it showed that the "much bigger" fighters won.

Wrote an article on the meteoric rise and falls of UFC/MMA fighters. Arlovski was one of em...

What happened...
