For three minutes, Andrei Arlovski appeared that he had finally cracked the code to the world's greatest heavyweight. In the end, he only found a chink in Fedor Emelianenko's armor, not a way to pierce his heart.

Arlovski had the reach advantage in this fight. He had the speed advantage. He was elusive. And true to the pre-fight words of his boxing trainer, Freddie Roach, he appeared to have Fedor frustrated, something rarely seen in the Russian's demeanor.

There was even a trickle of blood flowing from Fedor's nose.

It was a pretty aggressive move, but a push kick into the ropes followed by a flying knee is not that uncommon really. He, I, and most of the people watching thought that he had Fedor hurt. He may have, or maybe Fedor tried a little rope-a-dope against the superior boxer.

Andrei Arlovski was about as impressive as someone can be getting KTFO in 3 min.
