I'm just trying to make Andrei hip for the new generation of fans.

Arlovski is my favorite fighter, so yea I've been following his career lol. I agree he's not as aggressive as he used to be but part of that is his new team at Jackson's. He's been following Greg's gameplans a lot more, and although it doesn't always lead to him getting a stoppage he still only has 4 decision wins out of 22 total. I believe he'll get back to his usual self now that he's gotten his first win back in the UFC.

It was nice seeing AO back, and I am sure jitters were involved. Hopefully his striking defense and TDD can withstand a few more fights and he can climb the heavyweight ladder once more.
This. I was excited for the fight because I figured whoever got hit first was going to sleep but the end was just a lackluster decision. I guess I enjoyed the fight while it was happening though.

I'd love to see it but I really don't think so. What he once had appears to be gone.

I was on the edge of my seat but mostly beacause I knew the fight could end at any moment and I had $50 on Arlovski.

If I take the bet out of the equation, I don't hink I'd been that much into it.

Don't count the Pitbull out just yet, imo he still has some gas left in the tank. It depends on matchmaking as well. If you want a sure ko give him Big Nog or Mir, if they want to give him a test than Barnett or Gonzaga would be fitting.

The only thing remotely exciting about it IMO was the fact that they both have pretty weak chins and therefore it COULD end at any moment. However, the actual fighting inside the octagon was weak and boring. AA did more damage from the bottom with elbows in the 3rd than either fighter did in the whole rest of the fight.

I love a good comeback story so I hope you're right. I agree his next opponent should be one of the four you mentioned.
