    the consensus is that they're dead in the water afteir their next show, and if cbs doesn't buy them, the doors are shut.

    i expect arlovski to be back in the ufc within two years. hopefully, he won't be a boring ************ at that time.

    I'll reserve judgement for the first time I see Arlovski fight to win against someone who doesn't completely suck (Ben Rothwell does not qualify).

    With Arlovski, Kimbo and Carano on this card they have a legitimate shot at big ratings and rebirth. If KJ hadn't been a bitch, that rematch would have been on this card too.

    I thought Rothwell was the exact type of fighter for AA to face to get his mojo back.

    Definitely wanted to see AA vs Barnet, hopefully this fight with Nelson can be good, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was like AA vs Buentello

    rothwell was in alot of peoples top 10s before that fight, what Arlovski needed was a fighter who didn't pose a ground threat so he could tee off

    I don't know how you can say Rothwell sucks. He's 29-6 for a reason. Very heavy hands, decent ground game, and tough as hell. If Arlovski had gone out and fought the same as the last 3 or 4 fights in the UFC, I doubt he'd have won. Arlovski looked like his old, invincible self in that fight. I just hope he keeps it up.

    Pretty easily

    He's 29-6 for a reason.
    And that reason is "He's been fed a series of cans and been given gift decisions over Roy Nelson and a coked up Ricco". Of his 26 victories, only 8 came over guys with winning records.

    This is something that bothered me. Rothwell beat Nelson. Arlovski beat Rothwell. So now Arlovski fights Nelson? Since when do you go down in rankings by winning? Unless Nelson has had some recent wins that I don't know about.
