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.
Why is his only chance at winning a fight is by KO'ing someone? Why would you say this? Has Rogers been owned on the ground multiple times and I'm just not aware of it? For all we know, Rogers has a sick ass ground game. As it is, he knocked out Arlovski, a top 10 or even top 5 at the time, who has some of the best striking in the HW division.
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.
My point is that Carwin has a background in wrestling, his ability to be taken down by Gonzaga(who isn't known for his takedowns) is not impressive. Standing back up is all well and good, but again, he's a wrestler, he should be able to get back up when someone takes him down. He did well standing back up, I never took anything away from him there.
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.
Yes, knocking out one of the best strikers at HW and a top 10 or top 5 guy in the first without much trouble, means he didn't "destroy" him. It was definielty a hard fought victory for Rogers...
It's pretty obvious you are just trying to justify Fedor's next opponent though, so I guess I can see why.
I'm not trying to justify anything, Rogers is more impressive than Carwin at this point.
