    Ahh Ubeream vs Rogers. Finally!

    I'd love to see him fight Mir.

    I guess mainly because when the UFC bought Pride, matchups like this one were the only things I liked about the deal and very few of them happened right away.

    I still think Arlovski is one of the very best offensively and very well rounded.

    Andrei versus CroCop would still be a great fight IMO. I'd favor the pitbull over Noguiera and I'd love to see him against Randy, another fight that I'd favor the pitbull in.
    Lets go Brent!

    He'd probably win all of those I agree. Although I do think Randy might be able to take him down, just couldn't stand with him too long. Of course, Arlovski can't take a clean punch from anyone it seems.

    If he had a plus chin, he would be a nightmare.

    I think he'd be the best. But he has a below average chin and comes in with the same gameplan against everyone.

    Yeah, he's so technical and athletic...strong standing and on the ground. Just kind of a bozo and he has the chin of a little girl. It's a bizarre total package and I can't even think of anyone else to compare him to.

    I think Andre was a tough riddle solve. Back in the days when he had his hairy back, he had great td defense as evidence from is fight with Matyushenko. His punching was sound and he had good submissions from his Sambo days. It was tough to find a gameplan. That was when he was hungry.

    Now he has been exposed to have a weak chin, and mental breakdowns. I personally don't think he is that mentally strong. Regardless, he is still a tough matchup. Expecting to just punch him and knock him out is more like hitting the bullseye in a dart game.

    Yeah, going metrosexual started the decline.

    When he came in the league, they touted his sambo background and he rarely uses that at all in a fight (he ankle locked Sylvia and arm barred Brink). I'm sure he could have built up a nasty GNP if he worked on takedowns and beating on people from top.
