Because Arlovski has a weak ass chin, and the only chance Rogers has at winning any fight he is in is by KO'in his opponent, lucky for him, Arlovski is relatively easy to KO.
Carwin got rocked in that fight, that doesn't show a "good chin", it shows he can get rocked and come back, which is good. He got taken down(he has a solid wrestling background), as well as was losing that fight in general up until he showed his power, which we all knew he had.
It showed he can stand up after being taken down by a guy who isn't known for his wrestling, and that when he is getting rocked and losing the striking battle, he can come back and lay 1 shot down and knock you out.
Well standing up from a Bjj black belt being on top of you is very impressive... if you think a good top game is directly related to wrestling then your grappling knowledge is obviously not very fine tuned. Why does Bj Penn have such a strong top game, even though he isn't known for his wrestling? Oh ya, that's right, Bjj.
I don't see how that is more impressive than completely destroying Arlovski, a man who has some of the best striking at HW.
He "completely destroyed" Arlovski by sloppily knocking him out in the first?
I can't believe people are actually on Rogers' nuts, and think he is a good fighter, what a joke.
It's pretty obvious you are just trying to justify Fedor's next opponent though, so I guess I can see why.
