    arlovski vs. mir

    arlovski needs a win to "earn" a shot at a title.
    or
    if mir beats AA, he gets instant credibility by knocking off AA & everyone will think that the old mir is back.

    winner gets sylvia.

    I think Arlovski's next fight will be Monson

    If not him then Vera, but I have a feeling its gonna be Monson.

    You saw how much trouble he had with pe de pano's reach, imagine that but with a striker as good as Arlovski:eek3: On the other hand, Monson wouldn't be nearly as reluctant to go to the ground as he was against pdp. Thats one I really can't predict, thats why I wanna see it:noes:

    It's going to be comical watching monson vs sylvia, there's like a 30cm height difference between the two.

    Monson will get owned if he doesn't get a takedown immediately

    Did anyone else notice how HORRIBLE Cruz's standup game was? WOW, now that is ugly boxing. Monson actually looked like he could box because of that. Put him in the ring with anyone else and his clock will be cleaned. Monson against sylvia would be ugly that's for sure, but I would put my money on Monson because I think he is smart enough to know he would HAVE to shoot in right away and look for the sub. Regardless, there is NO WAY in hell that fight would go any distance.

    i can't see monson getting a takedown without putting up tons of energy for it...or eating punches along the way...monson should study minowa's rolling takedown...and to hold sylvia down would be hard too
