    This is why Arlovski wants to switch to boxing, because they make the other fighters wear big frigging pads on their fists.

    Besides, he didn't only train with Roach, Roach was just his striking trainer.
    Yup I was just kind of making light of the fact that you were mocking Barnett for defending Fedors striking. In the end Fedor got the ko not Arlovski so I guess Barnett critiques arent so bad after all.

    AA was sticking and moving well. He looked much sharper than Fedor standing, but all it takes is one shot and lights out.

    Just another opponent that started out fast only to be finished within the first round.

    AA lost because, he used an absurd MMA move, he was winning when he was boxing.

    It wasn't that absurd. He thought Fedor was wobbled and potentially going for a takedown to get out of the standup battle while wobbled. Fedor staggered backwards, then dropped his head as though he might be going for a takedown - throwing a knee there is not that uncommon and actually a pretty good idea. Unfortunately for AA, Fedor dipped his head and threw a looping right hand instead.
