I think he'll be just fine. He's a good fighter, and if the UFC cans him, it would be their loss. I really doubt that happening though, because even with the few new fighters they have added, they are still hurtin' for competition in the hw class.

They should keep him on the undercard for now, let him rock chek congo, and maybe somebody like Mario Netto just to make sure he's got his confidence back. By then Sylvia will hopefully have lost to some body, and he can get a fight for #1 contender or another title shot.

spot on. said exactly what i was gunna.

why is everyone so quick on their toes to call sylvia a bad fighter? sure hes boring, stupid, ugly, and very un-entertaining, but hes a good fighter. call him whatever you want but his wins are no fluke.

The problem with AA is that the result is always unpredictable. He's beaten the best, but he's also been beaten by the worst. His chin is shit but his punches are soul destroying.

The problem with Arlovski these days is his confidence is still shot and he's still too tentative. He's got all the tools, but he's having trouble putting it all together and using them. Basically, it's like a sports team that's going through a bad slump, all the players are still the same but nothing seems to work right.

As we saw in his last fight, Arlovski still has crazy punching power, he's down on his ass and he still manages to knock the other guy silly with one punch. He has to learn to trust and use that power the way he used to, take some lessons from Chuck Liddell or something. Both of them have the power to put opponents in really deep trouble with a single punch, the difference is Chuck trusts his power and knows he can use it to beat anyone while Arlovski doesn't seem to these days. If he can get his confidence back, he's going to be a force to be reckoned with in the HW division.

Arlovski is a good fight but no way would I call him under rated. Like what jdun11 said, if anything he is over rated. Also, people will say how great Arloski is and how Sylvia sucks.. I would say that Arloski is the better of the two and it's Sylvia's size that gets him by. But, that's not logical. He has to be a good fighter aswell. And, people will say how the Heavyweight division is weak and that's why Timmy is the champ. Well, what does that make Arlovski? Shit guys...

I just wanna say Sylvia is a sloth, but the man is still a beast. I dont like him but I respect his skills.

AA is a very good fighter. IF anyone is going to defeat crocop in the ufc it is going to be AA.

And about his third match with the bum sylvia
"It was later discovered that Arlovski had actually been significantly injured by a checked leg kick sometime in the second period which left him unable to throw kicks of his own or make any takedown attempts. Arlovski did not report his injury during the fight, as is required by UFC rules; indeed, the injury may never have been known except that it was leaked that Arlovski was having an MRI done on his leg a week after the fight. The injury caused his ankle and knee on his left leg to swell up to about four times its normal size.
When confronted by a reporter about the MRI, Arlovski avoided responding directly and would only say "I do not want to talk about my injuries or look for any other excuses." "

And if anyone was watching that fight aa was dominating till the second round, he was kicking sylva so much in the leg that sylvia's legs went purpule.
I think when randy beats tim (I know it is unlikely but that is what im going to hope) aa and crocop will fight for number one contender (or they will fight at some point to determine who is the best), then that would be a great match.
AA is a very good fighter, he is as fast as crocop and can throw punches as well as crocop(he obviously lacks in the leg department) but one thing people forget about AA is that he used to be the world Sambo champion and he is very good on the ground and is dangerous with his ankle locks. So he is the only one who might be able to beat crocop in the UFC.
And nw he isnt underated he has the third highest salery of the hw in UFC, and I think is ready to kick some ass. In his interviews on sherdog and he has stated that he is focusing 100 percent on mma and that he isnt going to party at all anymore. He also said that he want to fight the best both fedor and crocop.
