awesome, hopefully this turns into a war but i'm skeptical that aa can do it. if he can defend the takedown this could be a very interesting fight. still i have to take fedor.

Wow I am actually worried for Fedor. Arloski has been throwing fire lately!
Should be a good fight!

As good as AA has been fighting I just can't see myself going against the Baddest man on the planet especially after his total destruction of Sylvia. Fedor by UD

AA usually weighs in much higher than Fedor weighs in

Fedor will take it to Arlovski and steal all the thunder he's got rolling from these past few fights. Too bad... I'd rather see Fedor vs. Barnett so AA has more time to build steam

Yeah I really think ground fighter have a better shot at him considering Hunt was coming mighty close to subbing him and that is Hunt, but CC did take him to a decision so it is hard to know, and Arlovski has not been submitted yet.

FYI I am only talking about shots here I definietely think Fedor by KO 1st round

Now that they have built AA up to the average joe it will just make Fedor look even better after he beats him.......This is a good fight to get Fedor well know to the casual fans....If Barnett was more well known to the casual fans im sure it would be him fighting Fedor instead of AA.....

I do not know the general public does not seem tune in for Arlovski in the past and present, Arloski gave veiwers away from Gina Carano

If it goes to the ground it could be a pretty incredible fight there. Both guys are so well versed in Sambo it could be a crazy leglock fest.

I love AA but am not sure about this fight Fedor looked awsome against timmy. Let's say I won't bet my money on this one

he wont engage fedor, he's going to sit back and wait for his shot, then when he wakes up, he'll realise it was a baaaaad idea.

fedor 1st rd KO

I don't see this fight being competitive. I think Fedor steamrolls Arlovski.

Just my best guess, hope I'm wrong!

Classic tuvokian nuthugging right there.


This is really the match-up we've been waiting for for years. Arlovski has been looking good, but Fedor has never not looked good.

People talk about it being a sambo match, but I'd bet anything that AA doesn't want it to go there.

Fedor's sambo is to Arlovski's as Jacare's jits is to Jason MacDonald's

While it is one of the most anticipated main events in recent time, I think Fedor decides whether he makes quick work of AA or lets it take a while. He's got him both on the feet and on the ground.

I agree. AA has nothing to offer to Fedor. He has better striking than Andrei and a far superior ground game. BTW that is an amazing avatar.

Hunt was not that close to subbing him. That americana was not twisted far enough to even begin putting real pressure on the joint. I can rotate my shoulder that far without even touching my arm. Americanas are significantly harder to finish than kimuras, he wasn't in any danger of being finished.

My bad the commentators were making a big deal about it.
