I think Arlovski's definitely got the technical stand up to beat Fedor via cut or KO, I don't recall Fedor ever facing someone with the boxing skills of Andrei.
However Fedor is a very smart fighter and always has a good gameplan. Plus Arlovski's gonna have to be very elusive as he doesn't have the chin to hang power wise with Fedor. He was on his way down via a jab from Rizzo before the second punch landed in their fight.
Either way it's gonna be an awesome fight, could go either way but I'm leaning towards Fedor.

I like Arlovski not currently in the UFC. Potential fights with Fedor and Aleks Emelianenko(One of which is already set to happen), Josh Barnett and other top Heavyweights.

I would like to see Nogueira Vs Arlovski though, an intriguing match up.

I always thought Arlovski won the Sylvia fight. He landed more punches and leg kicks, and if it was scored the way Forrest Rampage fought, he'd definitely get the decision.

There is speculation of the Hep B. It was reported that he was not allowed to fight due to having it but later it was said he never had Hep B and was unable to fight due to incomplete "paperwork" on the things he needed to clear before fighting in the USA.

Hopefully he is alright, he is a fantastic fighter and a truly hope he can fight again.

Arlovski needs to work more on his ground game. He was in trouble on the ground against big country and Jake Obrien. Do we honestly think that he can defend the ground attack of a Fedor/Couture/Lesanr? Those guys will make sure once he's on the ground he stays there.

As far as Aleksander, I wouldn't call him a "fantastic" heavyweight, since he's never beaten a top heavyweight.

Arlovski is certainly high on the list of difficult opponents that Fedor has faced, but I really don't see him beating Fedor.
