This is coming from a huge Arlovski fan first off.

I don't think he really deserves one but I cannot right now off the top of my head think that anyone else is in line ahead of him. I suppose he could fight Nogeira (if he wins) or Cheik Kongo (if he wins) for the #1 contender.

I don't think he deserves the title. His last fight wasn't the fight of someone who wanted a championship belt around his waist, it was the fight of someone afraid to lose again and lose his contract. He must show that old warrior spirit that made him the champ to begin with. He has heavy hands and a really awesome ground game, he should use them and make oponents realize there is no where to hide from him. Right now his weakness is his fear of being let go by the UFC with all this new talent they are brining in.

I think AA needs to beat a top contender to earn a spot and he also has to wait behind Sylvia who is ahead of him. I like AA but he needs to get agressive again he's been pretty boring since Sylvia beat him the first time.

AA IMO would do ok against the current HW divison

AA vs Couture Win idk I think AA takes it but it'll be tough

AA vs Sylvia 4 Win I don't care because I won't watch this fight if it happens

AA vs Big Nog Loss Big Nog has faced better strikers then AA and beaten them.

AA vs Cro Cop Loss I think Cro Cop would sit back and catch him with a kick

AA vs Gonzaga Win Until I see more of Gonzaga's stand up I think AA is a good match up for him

AA vs Fedor Loss AA worst match up in MMA is Fedor a guy who is better in stand up and will destroy him on the ground.

I don't know because Andre stand up reminds me of Overeem a lot and Overeem trashed Shogun standing the 2nd fight. But i'd be curios to see If Shogun could clinch AA and knee him. If Shogun gets AA down AA is done because Shogun's GNP is vicous

I like AA. I do not, however, think he deserves a title shot until he beats a contender though. Personally, I think him vs. Cro Cop would be an awesome stand-up battle and if he won that, then we could talk about whether or not he deserves a title shot. Until then, I'm gonna have to say no.

That's not the point. The question was, does Arlovski deserve a title shot. Do you know of anybody a head of him?

Cro Cop is coming off a loss, he is not the #1 contender and doesn't deserve a title shot.

Shogun I thought was in a different weight class the LHWs, not the HWs so I don't see what that has to do with anything.

Couture is the champ so I'd say that him deserving a title shot was 4 months ago.

First Couture didnl't earn his shot.
2nd It was part of the OP that's why he asked you not to see if you thought those 3 deserved title shots.
3rd Sylvia is ahead of AA he lost a decison with a bad back injury and without getting really tagged after the 1st round so he defiantly has earned another shot if AA got one right after his loss.
