It really really sucks that he is taking such a long break between fights. I definitely look forward to seeing him in March.

damn...i was starting to believe that he was leaving the UFC, altough i would love to see him fight fedor, there are some many interesting match ups for him in the HW division...

i hope his comeback is against Cheick Kongo
or Brandon Vera might take it (altough i would rather see vera move down to light heavy)

One thing noted in the article is that he could've fought in November and again in March, but potential opponents turned down the fights. Kinda sucks.

awesome, having andrei in the ufc heavyweight divison takes it to another level, there are so many good fights in that divison that could involve him, hopefully he signs up long term too.

I'd like to seee Arlovski vs Kongo or Vera (but from a previous articel I think he was offered this fight but turned it down due to a hand injury)

or maybe Arlovski vs Cro Cop would be even cooler!!!!

I still wanna see AA vs HH.. i've mentioned that fight over and over but i guess i'm the only one that things that fight will be fireworks haha. We now know that arlovski needs an exciting opponent to put on an exciting fight, i say a pitbull vs a crazy horse could fit that

i want to know which and y the ppl who were offered to fight him and turned it down, and im all for AA vs CC but then again AA vs HH/Vera/kongo would be fine, meain they better sign AA cause of all the match-ups he can be in. and yea i think AA does need his oppenent to be aggressive too

if its the Arlovski that fought his way to and for the title, then he could win most any match. IMO.

I loved watching Andrei come up through the ranks, but it was a grueling 25min when and big tim fought last. He reestablished my faith from his last 2 fights, however to solidify his spot i think the only 2 fights that make since would be Kongo or CC. And to win decisively, not by pencil whipping him on a freaking judges sheet.

Arlovski def. Kongo
or = Reestablishing your part in the title picture
Arlovski def. CC

I think with the way CC has looked lately a match with Arlovski probably wouldn't be a good idea. Give him some time to get back to 100% and train with a cage before you put him in with a UFC veteran and former champ like Arlovski. I would like to see the fight though. But I really want to see Arlovski fight Kongo. That would be a good fight. I'm really glad he's back.
