Emelianenko vs. Arlovski - if AA cannot beat him who can?

There's rumours going around that Fedor's brother is coming to the UFC ... how do you guys think someone like Arlovski will measure up? If he can't beat him, who the hell can??

If Sobral ever moved back up to HW I think he'd have a shot, other than that none come to mind. Eddie Sanchez might match up well with him though.

If Frank Mir goes back to being Frank Mir then he would have the best shot. Mir would take him down ASAP I'm sure and work his magic. If Barnett can beat him on the ground then so can a 100% Frank Mir.

Another thing I just thought of. As much as I hate to say it, you can't even take Aleksander's biggest win into account considering he won in a fashion that is illegal in the UFC. Knees to the head of a downed opponent...if that were illegal in PRIDE, would Aleksander still have won? We will never know...
