Winning in Defeat: Rogers vs. Arlovski

Andrei is a better striker, it's that simple. Rogers really doesn't have that extensive an arsenal of strikes. Rogers is all about throwing hands and working the dirty boxing, and Arlovski is a solid boxer who knows how to control the distance and move his head. Of course, Rogers is bigger than Andrei, but not much, and I don't think he's going to have the edge in explosiveness or power.

But let's not sound defeatist. After all, Arlovski is a definite top five fighter and if Rogers managed to beat Andrei (especially, in fact, if he manages to knock Andrei out) he could find himself in the middle of the top ten. This is MMA, anything can happen.

Still, I think it likely that Rogers is going to lose and, if he does, a good portion of his future will depend on how that first loss comes, how he performs against the first truly elite fighter that has ever stepped in with him.

Completely agree. AA is going to pick Rogers apart. Of course, Rogers always has a puncher's chance as he has power behind those fists, but Arlovski would out-box him, and in my opinion, get the win.

Arlovski should win this fight but the problem is that we dont know alot about Rogers jaw but what we do know about Arlovksi's is that it isnt that great, if Rogers can take a beating he may be able to lose the battle but still win the war, I wouldnt be surpised if Arlovski was winning the fight and Rogers caught him.
