    Rothwell told SDS that he is likely to get Buentello next. I could see Barnett fighting Sylvia next then getting the winner of Fedor/Arlovski.

    That's a more interesting matchup, but I thought this was supposed to run in GP style? Meaning the winners would face off.

    This is absolutely true and good point. AA has been known to kinda 'backoff' from a fight and he won't get to do that against Fedor because if Fedor hits you wants there are 9 more punches following. AA is a very heady fighter. I do think Barnett would go the distance with Fedor but would ultimately lose a decision. I think AA will get finished, but it's going to be a hell of a fight!

    Wonder if he will fight him like he did against Werdum? If he does, we will all be disappointed. Arlovski is very hard to take down, I think Fedor has to hurt him standing to get him down. They both can hurt one another standing, but not if Arlovski runs backwards. Hope AA comes out to win, because he can win

    Apparently rumors circulating of Fedor-Mirko on NYE.

    I hope Arlovski keeps that eye of the tiger, otherwise he'll get his ass handed to him. I may consider going to this fight depending on where and when it is.

    I agree. No one could say he's not fighting top comp after that series of fights.

    Arlovski may be hestitant but Fedor will not fight the way Werdum did. He will either engage in strikes or attempt a real takedown neither of which Werdum did.

    Me too. Back in the UFC 30s (and possibly 20s; don't recall exactly), Trump was big with the UFCs. I think the AC convention center sucks (don't know why they haven't built something better, place is a serious piece of sh!t) but I wonder if Trump would want to get his casino names out there at the same time?

    I would be there for sure.
