Ah. makes me sad every time I watch haha. Thanks for the upload though.
Thanx, I havent read the spoliers so I'm expecting a good fight.
Im not really one of those fair weather fans, and jump on and off the bandwagon type of guy, but that was a huge blow to Arlovskis credentials. The only thing I remain curious about is what would happen if he didnt land on his belly, say he landed on his back, because you cant roll over if a heavyweight is sitting on your back.
yeah i was wondering the same thing...i mean arlovski moved his hand to block the punches...but it didn't seem like he could roll over cause he had that giant on his back
I'm not one to quickly say "it was just a lucky punch" or anything, but I think Arlovski can and will take the belt back. I'm really curious as to how the fight would have played out had he not gotten so reckless. Congratulations to Tim Sylvia though. Way to take a huge punch and throw right back. I just hope too many people aren't going to jump on the "Arlovski is the most overrated fighter ever" bandwagon. No one seems to look at the game objectively anymore. One of the reasons why I hate most Sherdog posters so much.
He only has one fight under his contract in the UFC right?
Hopefully he'll ge the rematch...fuck he got wayyyy too excited when he knocked Silvya first.
Sylvia happened to land on his back and his 8ft long legs kept Arlovski from finishing it. The opposite happened to Andrei and it just plain sucks. I will definitely say "it was a lucky punch" for Sylvia
aa walked right into a ko and got locked into sidecontrol on his back with no defense possible
9/10 times aa beats silvia but tonight he lost fair and square
No lucky punch bullshit... he lost fair and square
AA got way to careless, anxious, & hungry for the kill.
the past few fights have just been so easy for AA that he forgot that his opponents punch back & can hurt him. fuck, after the shows he's been putting on... he could have easily thought he was invincible.
Cant blame him, you connect like that, drop the person, the last damn thing you have on your mind is getting knocked out. I wasnt too impressed with either in the fight, but Jesus props to Sylvia for being able to recover in all of 3 seconds, that was amazing.
I started to reach for a cigarrette thinking the fight was over.... I look back and arlovski is getting rocked
I was saying that long before I ever heard rogans commentary
this result makes me want to cry
The ufc heavyweight division is just beyond crap now and now arvloski is going to play out his contract fighting tim sylvia over and over again.
Thanks for the vid.
AA will take the rematch, he didn't look to rattled after the ref stopped it.
I don't want to watch it again. I need a couple days. Then I can watch again.
Yeah the look on his face when he got up was like 'damn that sucked but it happens' he knew it was his fault for getting overconfident. I take the lucky punch comment back because Sylvia did connect fairly accurately, it's just the luck of they way both guys were knocked down.
I was at the bar and everyone was stunned after Sylvia's recovery and comeback. I stormed out and drunkenly yelled obscenities while walking home but now I can see it's not the end of the world Arlovski will be back and he will be much more serious for the rematch. Go AA
wow... i fucking hate sylvia. He looks so fucking retarded.
thanx for vid
In for rematch AA should get the belt then fight in pride.
god damn it i still am waiting for someone to upload the tito fight.
is it just me or did sylvia's punch not look that hard. it looked like he punched AA in the throat
at first i thought that ended it too fast, but then in the replay, silvia landed like 8 or 9 un-answered punches while aa was down.
yeah it didn't look that hard, but sylvia has some power behind those punches.
does anyone still think that arlovski or sylvia can beat fedor?
