Since they are in different weights I don't know how fair this is. I beleve Arlovski would wup him, KO round 1.

Vitor then? Or Vitor now?...

I think the old Vitor, the 19-20y/o Phenom Vitor, would've put up a hell of a fight. Andrei is so fast for a man his size (which is a lot bigger than Vitor), so accurate with his puches, and just plain vicious. That and Belfort unfortunatley seems to have lost a step. But even in his prime, I'd still go with AA. Would have been exciting to watch though

Even though Arlovski has a suspect chin I'd say he would overpower Vitor and win a dominating decision.

I don't understand why eveyone thinks Andrei has a bad chin... I know 3 of his five losses are KO's, but really take a look at it:

Silvia is a giant. Everybody slams his recent 'style' and seems to forget that he was folding cats up for a couple of years till he sort of hit a wall in that Assuerio fight.

Pedro Rizzo was a striking god back in the day. His laundry list of knockouts includes Tank, Vernon White and Barnett (not to mention a fairly impressive Muay Thai record). There is no shame in being KO'd by Pedro

And Datsik... Well come on, the kid was twenty, and it was his first MMA bout, I'll cut him some slack.

I don't count Ricco, he overpowered and beat AA plain and simple... Sorry to get so wordy, but I just don't think that Andrei gets a fair shake in this argument...

I think you either meant 'for Arlovski' or right jab + left straight if you were talking about Vitor

Even in his prime, Vitor seemed to give in and half ass a fighter after a few minutes on things not going his way.

Even if AA droped a weight class and fought 20 yr old Vitor as a LHW, i still give it to Arlovski, 2 Rnd KO

Vitor Couldnt Take AA. Would be a good fight though. Kinda hate to wathc though. One of those fights where you like both fighters and dont know who to cheer for.
