    Seems like his chin has actually improved.

    Iron chin Arlovski is one of the scariest guys in the HW division.

    His "chin" was never a problem

    Maybe his striking defense was a problem

    Fedor, Rogers, and Sergei hit harder than Schuab, BF(especially post-T), and Browne?

    This. Not sure why anybody who gets knocked out a couple times supposedly has a glass chin.

    Not even just his "overall striking defense". He has done some real bad dropping his defense to "attack" his opponent AFTER previously showing decent striking defense in the SAME fight earlier.

    He knocks down Timmey, and charges in like a bull for the kill WIDE OPEN and gets decked. He had NO defense for the ONE exchange.

    Fedor, A flying G.D. knee attempt? Again not overall poor striking defense. He had ZERO in that one exchange of the evening and as such face planted.

    Arlovski's chin was never bad he just put himself in the line of some heavy fire and paid the ultimate price.

    When you think of the kind of power Rumble has and AA brawled it out with him for 3 rounds even after getting his jaw broken.

    Hes not the glassjaw everyone on Sherdog said he was just because Fedor beat him and they needed a way to suck up to Dana White and discredit Fedor and Arlovski.

    Same guys who called Arlovski a glassjaw said Werdum was a "UFC reject"

    AAs chin is average. Not good and not bad.

    After the rumble fight they replaced it with a titanium one.

    Datsik ruined his chin but somehow it's still holding.

    No but it does show how bad his defense was when his loss is to this guy

    I'm so happy to see Arlovski 2.0 and the second career he is enjoying. I give him three more fights; he will win two and lose one, then retirement.

    Arlovski has terrible defense and not the best recovery which is a big problem against powerful strikers. If Browne was not wobbly it would have been a definite finish.

    He did get ko'ed multiple times but still that Rogers thing is still out of the place one considering Brett didn't do anything similar during his career and lost to every better than mediocre fighter outside Andrei - and even some below that level. People wanted to give him ridicilous hype because he finished 10 dudes and then gave Fedor a "hard" fight after - and did so outside of the "zuffa hype machine".
    Well I guess you can say momentum but still...

    No, but getting KO'ed by Datsik is not a very good way to start a career
