impressed by arvloski considering how many tough guys get octagon jitters there first fight back, or starting new, in the ufc
Kennedy getting KO'd by Belfort? yes, please...

No it wasn't competitive IMO. Silva didn't totally dominate but it was a pretty comfortable decision for him.

I honestly can't understand the thinking behind this rematch. It's not like the first fight was controversial.

Win is for future title eliminator

If Big Foot wins... He just drew/tied a game Hunt that showed up, puts him in title eliminator status. Food for thought; 0-1 vs Werdum, 0-2 vs Cain Velasquez.

If Arlovski wins... The company will hard sell his 4 consecutive MMA wins in a row and his 5 fight UFC win streak. Puts him in title eliminator status. 1-0 vs Werdum, never fought Cain.

What more do you need to know?

Agreed. And it's awesome! WAR AA!

Pretty crazy, considering that he was able to finish a fight where he broke his jaw.
That takes a pretty tough dude to go through.
Especially considering his opponent.

He lost a few early on but then strung together a good win streak. Arlovski is one of the best athletes in the hw division, his chin is suspect, but whose isn't when getting hit flush like he was letting himself get hit? He's a good acquisition, just needs to keep with the right coach.
