Arlovski held a video chat tonight for his fans. Some interesting stuff. Check it out. Talked about his fight with Fedor, his next fight, his boxing career, his "glass jaw", a possible return to the UFC, among other things.

I saw his post-fight interview and his somber mood got to me. The guy fought his heart out. I don't think a glass jaw did him; Emelianenko's hands are made of rock. I like Emelianenko, but if Arlovski had won, I'd have no problems with him being the guy to grab that elusive win.

I like Arlovski a lot, and should he go back to UFC, he would be a threat to any opponent Zuffa matches him up with. As is, he's favorited over every guy in Affliction, sans Emelianenko and an even draw with Barnett, so unless he can challenge Emelianenko within the next year or so, his best bet would be the UFC, merely because it would allow him to fight more and aim for one of the two honest heavyweight titles in MMA.

"Fedor's lack of eye contact in the staredown", well I've never seen him look anyone in the eyes, as Bas said it means he has nothing against them.

If I recall correctly, didn't Sylvia avoid eye contact as a sign of respect for the little man in their fight?

He talked about a lot of stuff. He was way more revealing than I thought he would be. Especially fielding questions about a "glass jaw" and other crap like playing Russian Roulette. Man that was funny stuff.

I dunno but Fedor always looks down during the staredowns...he takes staredown literally lol.

I thought the same thing about the Fedor staredown quote, but I guess AA saw that as a sign of weakness.

I dont this he believes that. Fedor never looks in his opponents eyes. I've always thoguth that was more intimidating for his opponents.
