Arlovski's road to the belt is alot more difficult that it was a couple of years ago. With Cro Cop, Vera, Herring, Couture and maybe oneday a Sylvia (fight#4?? Ugh) to go through.

No doubt he is talented but I think he will get stopped somewhere in that line up.

I think people get caught ,that's no big deal.Very few people have a chin like the Nogs , Chuck, gomi , Diaz etc. The thing that bothered me was that he fought to not get knocked out, not win in the 3rd fight with Sylvia. Win or lose Arlovski/Cro-cop would be the 2 fastest Hvyweights I've seen.I hope he really is back to training frist. Fedor said in an interview the thing that seperates him from Aleks is training. Alek's and Arlovski are similar to me in ability. Alek's is physically bigger and Arlovski looks in better shape, but they have very similiar skills.

I understand CoCrop's rep and record but until he takes the division by storm(which is possible, maybe even probable) then maybe everyone should wait to put the belt on him.

I feel that people and sometimes fighters dont truly realizethe importance of training camps.A.A has no camp so to speak Chicago is not the hot bed of M.M.A., I think that if he had a good camp and top training partners to push him he would improve exponentionaly.I really enjoy those Russian Sambo fighters.

tim sylvia is a joke with a capital J he did get the better of arlovski true but his last two fights (Arlovski 3 and monson) were not challenging fights for him or atleast they didn't look it he didn't try he just defended and in arlovski 3 like another user said he(arlovski) didn't have the fire and can you blame him i can't regardless he was wide open for a knockout acouple times in that fight and sylvia didn't say boo he just made sure he rode out the the desision and we all know that very rarely do they give the belt away on a judges opinion.same thing with monson you look at that fight that short brick bastard pushed the pace till he tired out in the third (i believe) and he was done gassed ready to go and sylvia sat on his thumb.the proof is in the goddamn pudding my friend sylvia must go its one thing to be a good fight but to be a champ you need to be a crowd pleaser look at liddell he draws a crowd ...and with the announcment that couture is comming for his head i couldn't be happier because this is for certian he may beat sylvia but the pitbull will rip him apart and crocop vs arlovski it is a good year to be a pitbull fan people



So Sylvia is a joke because he took two fights (actually 3) to decision? Have you ever wathced a Tim Sylvia fight before that? I am not a huge Sylvia supporter, to be honest AA is still one of my favorite fighters, but Tim was stomping on fools for years before that. Everybody was on his nuts, and then a few unexciting decisions a few bad words are said about him and everyone's sippin the hater-ade... This Sylvia bashing is gotten beyond rediculous...

Let's talk a little about the proof being in the pudding...

Sylvia's record is 23-2

16 (T)KO's

That's almost a 70% KO ratio

5 decision wins about 20%

Tim Silvia is 7th on the list of most (T)KO's in MMA and the only person above him on that list with a higher KO percentage is Yvel and Brink neither of which record's compare to Tim's...

So what pudding were you talking about? Maybe it was some sort of different flavor... because this one tastes like "you-got-owned"

He looked better than he was becuase of the horrible HW division he may have been able to beat tim in a 4th fight but he will never beat CC so he will never be HW champ again but he is still a good fighter
