this puts no doubt in my mind that arlovski is going to win, in fact arlovski is the slightly bigger of the 2 being 6'4 240 o'brian being 6'3 240, and we all know arlovski is the stronger more muscular of the 2 so look for arlovski to be pushing the pace, sprawling, brawling, looking for a new contract and a future in the UFC as motivation for an exciting fight, how is this not on the main card?

does anyone know how i can watch this fight live?

Good find man!

I think Arlovski's gt this in the bag an hope he re-signes with the UFC as its the easiest way to watch him fight. He's a warrior!!

WAR ARLOVSKI!!!

how is this not on the main card?




Seemed like a very odd choice to me, too. Rather see this than Tanner/Okami, personally.

Hopefully its a good fight & we'll get to see it if one or more of the main card fights ends quickly.

i see the same thing happening.
Andrei is my favorite fighter, and i think he's going to war for that new contract.

WAR AA!

If arlovski fights fights like he has in his past 2 fights hes gonna lose, he needs to go back to his old aggressive style.

I have a feeling theyre not gonna air this fight even if its exciting, I hope they do though.

Muscle only means so much as far as strength. I've rolled with wrestlers that were way smaller than me and were stronger. Wrestlers just have a freakish strength that comes from throwing other humans around that you can't get from just weight training. I'd be very surprised if Arlovski was stronger than O'Brien. That being said, I can't pick O'Brien for this fight.. I'm going Arlovski.

i understand muscular tone isnt always important but andrei is freakishly powerful and he comes from a similar background of sambo so dont be surprised if he tosses him around before the KO

i believe arlowski isnt on the main card because the ufc doesnt want to give him further exposure just in case he doesnt resign. if he goes elsewhere we will hear that he is washed up and couldnt compete in the ufc. if he resigns the he will be on main cards in the future and is one of the top fighters in the world.
its so predictable.

This man is 100% right!
The UFC should do the decent thing though an air the fight!
AA is a top 5 HW an deserves to be main card!

Props to you sir!

You go to UFC.com and click the menu item called UFC On Demand.
Also I see from your avatar that you live in The Multiverse!
You can see if there are any bars there that are showing it (though I don't know what state, country, planet, or universe The Multiverse is located in)
bar listings here

yeah i'm just being a smartass we all live in the multiverse, im a scientist so its just a technical term for multiple universes, anyway so as soon as the fight is going on i can go to ufc.com on demand, pay, and watch it live? if not yeah i'll just go to a bar and hope some a-hole dosnt change the channel

Ya... I was just joking with you.
Anyway another alternative is I know that all casinos show the payperviews.
But back to On Demand... I've never tried it... but researching it further it seems that UFC has teamed up with Yahoo Sports in order to show it live on the internet...

I hope O'Brian is ready to get his face beat in.....IMO i dont think he is. AA by TKO 2nd Rnd

By the way, did I mention I am attending this event live. I'm driving to Ohio from Chicago. I can't wait... I've never attended an event before

sorry to go against the grain here but i just think that O'brien can LnP his way to victory. these articles never really change my mind about my picks although they are interesting ti read. now i can be 100% wrong and AA can just as easily come out and score a KO in the first, but i just see O'brien LnP again. the only thing that bothers me in picking O'brien is his back injury, but nevertheless i am still going with him to win.

as for the whole AA on the undercard thing...it has been discussed multiple times and consensus seems to be that it is a business move by the UFC to take away any leverage AA can gain from this fight in terms of negotiations. hope he stays though, can't afford too many more HW leaving the UFC.
