I'd like to see how Arlovski would do in the UFC's heavy weight division now hopefully he keeps up the winning streak and they give the old dog one last chance. He's dangerous opponent for anyone imo

I'm more surprised Bellator hasn't reached out to him.

Ultimately it would be great to see him back in the UFC, hell even as a gatekeeper, fighting guys like Russow, Meathead, Barry, and such.

Hayes is pretty tough but WAR AA ALL DAY.

I'm unsure of how Andrei will do against the UFC competition but the fact that this guy is such a fan favorite with so many supporters and is winning fights again should be enough to get him back into the UFC sometime soon.

Glad he is fighting on a regular as well....Bellator would be prime for him IMO....UFC would make him another CroCop I think.
