What are we thinkin about Arlovski?

Okay, so after his fight against Pe De Pano at 66 which apparently has been made official....which I havent seen proof to, should he be thrown back into the title mix? Or are we looking at the winner of Mir/Vera for a shot? Or winner of that fights Arlovski for the number 1 contendership? Being my favorite fighter Id love to see him jump right back into the title picture but with 2 losses in a row I think that might be a bit hard this year, early next year though he should be bakck in the mix.........Thoughts?

I agree! I think Vera will beat Mir and will be given a chance at the title. He will then beat Sylvia and then have a great match up with Arlovski.

I wonder if AA could move down to light-heavyweight and still be as strong? That would create some interesting fights.

Yes mate. Chuck Liddell vs Andrei Arlovski sounds awsome to me. It would be one hell of a match up. I am a massive Iceman fan but I think Arlovski may give him a run for his money.

I dont think AA will get another shot until Tim loses the belt. The only problem with this is if AA gets the belt back Tim gonna be saying he beat AA twice and should get a chance to get his belt back. Thus we may see Tim/AA 4.

but the thing is if vera did beat tim sylvia which he probably would then would AA be able to beat vera? and is AA even allowed to fight Tim sylvia anymore i thought they said it would be the last time they fought at bitter rivals

i think give some new bllod a try first then give AA the second in line shot after that - at either monson, sylvia, mir or vera - depending on whos got the belt.

id be surprised if he doesnt win it back at some point next year.

I believe that Monson will be holding the belt after this PPV anyways. We all know that Sylvia has some problems with ground fighters. (Quite an understatment)

And after that I see no problem with the winner of Mir/Vera getting a shot. I think that AA needs to fight a few more times, just as a kind of punishment for the last fight with Sylvia. He needs to know that a 5 round borefest is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
