I don't rule Arlovski out, he's a good fighter, but it's his results that make people feel that way. I agree he "should" be a better fighter than Tim Sylvia and he "should" have beaten him, but he didn't. The talent is there, the skills are there, the results... nope. It's a similar situation with BJ Penn. Recently we had a top 10 pound for pound thread. When making my list I so badly wanted to put BJ on that list. If it was on talent alone, he would easily have made it, not just top 10, but top 5, maybe even top 3. But he wasn't on my list because the results weren't there. It's the same with Arlovski. I so badly want to rank him ahead of Sylvia. On talent alone he easily surpasses "The Maine-iac", but talent alone doesn't win fights. He "could and should" beat Tim. He "could" beat Couture. He would get KTFO by Cro Cop any way you look at it, his chin can't take that kind of power.
