I hope he does. I think he'd be a fool not to, I mean he's still a legit threat to the HW devision as long as he starts keeping his hands up

If he hasnt corrected the dropping his hands part of his game by now, then i dont know if training with anyone is really going to make him much better. Other then that, he is one of the most skilled heavyweights in the world.
Spot on with your analysis od AA boxing and flaws there in.....I do think it will make a difference because hewill be coached by guys that are going to remind im of his other skills and I do believe he can train himself to keep his chin covered....

He should be good enough to teach AA to keep his hands up, but he worked alot of the time Andrei did with Michael Moorer....

This should be a good fit for him....

True, I know for a fact that many HW would have fallen to the shots that Rogers gave AA. Fedor is known for hitting hard too. I don't think AA has a "glass jaw", he just doesn't have an elite chin like the upper echlon(sp?) HW's.

good on him for gettin back to work. Hoepfully Greg Jackson and co can give him some tips along the lines of 'keep yo hands up, don't take unecessary risks'. Would love to see Arlovski take another run at a strap.

He's going to need a couple big wins before the UFC will want to shell out the kind of cash he's used to seeing.

The only problem with AA is that he is either extremely aggressive (which works for him sometimes) or extremely defensive. Not taking risks equals Werdum/AA or AA/Sylvia 3. He doesn't understand balance.

I kind of agree with this. I love AA, but during those two fights you mentioned I barely got through watching them once and never watched them again cause they were so boring.

Wish he could as you put it balance the act of being defensive when he needs to and then exploding and fiercely attacking when the moment's right.

Dana always said the one person he regretted letting go was Arlovski. Maybe he will possibly re-sign him.
