I have a feeling Rothwell is going to work Arlovski. He's just looked so uninspired in his past few fights. I hope that changes though, I want to see an amazing fight. Rothwell is so underrated it's ridiculous.

Didnt Arlovski finish his last fight? Oh yah they didnt show it on tv. I am glad he stood up for himself. I love the UFC, but they need to treat these guys better. IMO Arlovski will KTFO Rothwell.

He did finish him, and he did it in really lackluster fashion. Like i said he looked really UNINSPIRED.

Ben is big, but kind of slow and sloppy in his boxing skills. Not to mention other than the occasional high kick I see nothing else in his arsenal that could possibly even match AA....AA by way of KO in the 1st Rnd!!

This statement is ridiculous! Rothwell is not a top 10 HW! Andrei is for good reason! Rothwell will be shown up!

wow this card will be unholy, cant wait n AA by KO 1rd, yes last fight wasnt great but not cause of him, jake went for the takedown right away n keep doin it, then AA reversed him to fall into mount, AA said in the post-fight interview he didnt want to hurt him cause of his surgery (AA is to nice). agasitn Cruz he KOed him OFF HIS BACK. dana ****** him with the werdum by sayin win n title shot so he fought to win. yea every since the tim fights he has been off mental but the PITBULL will be in full-force once again

I believe you are crazy. I really don't think Rothwell is on Arlovski's level.

Rothwell hasn't really fought top guys. Unless you count the decision win over an out of shape Ricco Rodriguez who hasn't beaten anybody of note since 2002.

Arlovski hasn't looked great in his past 2 fights but he is still a top heavyweight with a lot of skills.

I don't see Rothwell being to compete with Arlovski in the standup. I'm not sure he will get the fight to the ground either since Arlovski probably has the second best sprawl in MMA besides Liddell.

Arlovski 1st round ko unless he is still awake after the nasty punch then submits him with a leg lock ala Tim Silvia


Arlovski will be back in the UFC after he strings together a few highlight reel KO's especially if he KO's Fedor
for more money then he is asking now lol

GOOD WORK Dana


I imagine who ever beats Fedor will have a nice contract waiting for them at the UFC
just so Dana can say he has the best heavyweight

Hehe...that's an interesting line of thought.

DREAM might scoop all these guys up though, especially if Affliction doesn't do another show, and even if they do, non-exlusive contracts are great for the fans. More fighters, more shows, more matchups.

Can't wait for Banned though, super stacked.

Too bad the UFC couldn't sign him to an extension. Andrei wasn't treated respectfully as a past champion in my opinion. He is still a threat and a top 10 fighter, and to be put on the un aired prelims was a slap in the face. I don't blame him for going elsewhere.

Rothwell is a tough fight for Arlovski. Although I think Arlovski will win it's going to be tougher fight than people are thinking. I'm sad he's not back in the UFC but it's not the end of the world.

He finished him dude. If you are uninspired you run around the cage like Kalib Starnes; you dont finish. I will be at this event live to watch The Pitbull destroy Big Ben.

Why is having his face on a poster considered official????

Have we heard a official press release???

If not, Lame of everyone to bite so early

I got tickets to the event from Mike Whitehead; he confirmed that Arlovski is fighting. I got flamed for talking about most of these fights months ago and they have all came true; Whitehead is a pretty credible source.
