It simply wasn’t a good fight. Yes, it’s awesome that Andrei Arlovski won his 6th fight in a row, but it was a slow, sloppy battle. A slow battle in which jabs were tossed out, and Frank Mir, belly hanging, barely reacted. Either Mir was completely comfortable with what was being thrown at him, or both men were just moving in slow motion. It was very weird.
But the most important thing is that AA got the nod, and he’s on his way to a UFC title shot, or so you would think. There aren’t many more people in line for Werdum’s belt, unless Werdum loses in which case he’ll get the automatic shot at the title again, right? I don’t know. Cain has only fought the same people over the last 4-5 years so that would make sense in this universe.
Anyway, Roy Nelson apologized for Mir/Andrei:
