He's dished out more KO's than he's taken. I think he has some of the best striking in MMA, and at heavyweight for sure. Getting Ko'd by Fedor, and a guy who cuts to get to 265 back to back doesn't really make me count him out.

He can still take shots, he just needs to work extra hard to be elusive, and he's totally light enough on his feet to do that. But like with all fighters, it's up to him, not his potential. I think he makes HW more exciting, and I think he will be back in the UFC.

I would like to see him back in the UFC, his run through the UFC 40's and 50's was very entertaining to watch.
In the slow motion and after-fight interviews you understand he was frustrated not being able to hit Fedor in the stand-up, so that's one reason he went for the flying knee. That and he thought the push-kick winded him.

100% agree, I love Arlovski as a fighter and I think soon we'll see he's not washed up. Brett Rogers is a strong heavy handed opponent who'd knock out most guys in that situation, I don't think it says anything bad about the Pitbull.


I'd to see a confident secure Arlovski tearing people up standing, and one who hasn't forgot his Sambo background.
