He couldn't do shit against Schaub. Are you serious?

....this. Much respect to Arlovski and i've always been a fan, but I don't want to see him up against the likes of Junior or Cain. It won't be pretty.

Can he be a champion?? It is possible....for a few reasons.

1. He's got a big fight coming up and if he wins that puts him in contender status
2. Hw needs new contenders
3. It's a very shallow division where I see most guys outside cain and jds beating each other, no one really stands out.

Going back to the first 2 points, if he can beat silva that will earn him a good position. He will be most likely be one win away from a shot or they may grant him one after silva. Who else is there?? At this point he hasn't faced Cain or jds yet. And he will end up facing werdum or Cain. I don't see him besting Cain, but anything can happen....one punch lands. Werdum? Easier fight...again I don't see him winning but he can land a big shot and it's a closer fight. Although, I think he will need 2 wins, that is more likely and again the way hw is I can see him beating guys like Browne, Barnett, Nelson or Hunt.

I don't think AA will win the belt, but with his name and the fact UFC loves comeback stories it certainly helps him being guided to a title shot if he's winning. From there it's up to his hands. He looked like crap vs Schaub, but I'm gonna give him a pass and take his word for it that he was nervous and cautious.

Bigfoot is a very tough opponent for him
