During today’s ONE FC event a trilogy met a tragic end with a no contest ruling after former UFC champion Andrei Arlovski soccer kicked a downed Tim Sylvia numerous times.

referee Yuji Shimada had not declared “open attack” -- a One FC house rule in which the referee declares it is safe for a fighter to soccer kick another

ImO ref was outta place and a dumb rule http://www.bjpenn.com/mmanews/2012/08/31/gif-post-arlovski-soccer-kicks-tim-sylvia-bout-ruled-no-contest-mma-news-35782.html

Not sure why, but I always like seeing AA win. However, this doesn't bode well for Big Tim's UFC HW title shot...

that fight was entertaining in a bizarre way.

1 - that Brit announcer who I do like: "Arlovski seems to have had some weird dental work done, look at those teeth!"

Jason Chambers the analyst: "actually, that's his mouthpiece."

Brit guy: "aahhhhh"


2 - the ring announcer called him "Tim Silva". Timmay cant get no respect.....

3 - Seemed like Timmay tried to headbutt Andrei but then hurt himself instead in the process. Didnt see the replay on that one.

4 - No one knew what was going on with that obscure rule. Total anarchy from the fighters, announcers, ref, doctors, cameraman (didn't know what to film), cornermen......even Lenny Hardt just started blurting stuff out over the PA. Shimada goes to Tim after a few minutes of recovery and says "you continue?" or something like that.

Tim says " I see two of you!"
Shimada "huh?"
Tim "I see two of you!"
Shimada: "ah, two of you......."

walks away and somehow thinks that means the fight should go on.


Funny. I want to see the 5th fight.

Definitely a stupid call by the ref. Rules need to be explained a bit more to the fighters.

Sucks for AA, that was the best he looked since leaving Strikeforce, those two fights he had in Pro Elite, he won, but didn't look that great. Tim was wearing down, AA most likely could have finished the fight with 15 seconds left, when Tim stumbled, without the soccer kicks. Props to AA for taking some shots early, with his chin holding up.

I bet they put fight #5 on that Oct. card they were talking about with Kelly.

Yeah, just watched the replay, they were both in the clinch, Timmay definitely threw his head into AA's and hurt himself. Bitch move by Tim.

That was a great combination from Arlovski that put Timmy down.

When he's on, he looks like one of the best HWs in the world. I've always been a fan of his. I hope he can get a nice win streak going and make one more run in the UFC before his time in this sport is up.

Only problem is.....his damn chin betrays him every time it gets touched

AA should have just followed up with punches when Timmay was down, b/c he was done.

It was the perfect opportunity for a couple of Bertuzzis

Timmey hit him some good times in that 4th fight, he just can't get hit flush from HW's otherwise he usually goes down but not many other HW's can take too many bombs from big hitters I don't think I need to say that we all know it. See Pat Barry or Kongo or even Cain who doesn't have crap chin but gets dropped by big hitters.

I agree theres really no such thing as a chin in the HW division. You may say Cabage but I have a feeling if JDS would put one on Cabbage in his prime it would have been lights out. AA's problem is he lets ppl back him to the cage then he forgets tol move his head and he gets dropped.

Big Nog used to be known for his chin but that went goodbye

Thats true I just think the boxing we are seeing at HW is much better then before but Nog certinly took his fair share of punishment. Big Nog used to never lose he simply would run out of time.

I don't think that JDS could have knocked out Cabbage in his prime.....

I think it would have taken a dump truck. That guy was pretty much in-human.

i dont get it, i mean, they gave it to baroni, but not to andrei, if your gonna make a rule...go through with it 100%, because its bullshit and unfair for fighters that get a KO /TKO win that doesnt count...exspecially when the executed move is patrially allowed

another frustrating example as to why the unified rules of mma should take affect in all of mixed martial arts....soccer kicks cause nothing but problems...except for a couple reallyu awesome curb stomps ive seen...ala mark hunt and shogun
