Is Arlovski that good?
I honestly have my doubts. When I first heard he was fighting Fabricio Werdum, I thought he was nuts. Arlovski is a physical sight and very well-rounded, but I've never been convinced he was a championship caliber fighter. He looks good crushing B-level and the occassional respectable fighter, but very rarely earns a win against elite competition.
Where are they now? David Terrell Edition
Talk about a promising start that had no follow through. This guy was supposed to be the next big thing at middleweight. Somewhere along the line his loss to Evan Tanner combined with a few injuries completely derailed his trajectory.

Here is what Josh had to say:
"In response to the comments made by Dana White I am completely open to fighting in the UFC and the new Pride Worldwide. I do not have any personal issues with Dana.

Brandon Vera speaks
Brandon Vera speaks! After posting on MMA.tv, Vera reveals he's still training and most interestingly, still with Rob Kaman. Notable quote:
First and foremost I would like to apologize to all of my friends and fans, coaches and family for being held up for a minute. I know, I know the 1M dollar ?'s are when/who/where are you fighting again. I honestly don't know. I do know whoever I fight next it's gonna be in for a good one.
I'm headed to Thailand today and I'm gonna travel from camp to camp. (yes I'm still with Rob Kaman) I actually tried to bring him wiith me, but, his shcedule wouldn't permit. I'm meeting him in Holland after May 2nd. After that Big Bear with Rampage and after that East Coast with Master Lloyd Irvin. Just cuz I don't have a fight lined up dosen't mean anyone is gonna catch me slippin.
When he gets to these parts, I'll see if I can set up an interview with him. Also, I was under the impression he split with Rob Kaman vis a vis City Boxing, but apparently not. So if he's still training with elite coahces and improving every element of his game, good on him. Maybe that layoff won't hurt him so bad afterall.

Mirko doesn't like showbiz, but showbiz is exactly what the UFC, his current organization, wants. They made a circus even in the weigh-ins, in front of around thousand people.
"In Japan I came to the hotel and didn't get out until the fight, and after the fight I went home. Here I have to do conferences, weigh-ins, and I don't like it, it annoys me, but it's their way, and I chose this job myself. Oh, I'm not sorry...", Mirko says.
