PostSubject: Stipe Miocic vs Andrei Arlovski Booked as UFC 195 Co-Main Event   Wed Oct 21, 2015 3:29 pm

YIKES!!
Shocked


Quote :
UFC 195 has landed a heavyweight co-main event bout that could line up the winner for a title shot.

UFC officials on Wednesday announced that No. 3 ranked Stipe Miocic (13-2) would face former champ Andrei Arlovski (25-10, 1 NC), who is ranked No. 4 in the heavyweight division, in the UFC 195 co-main event on Jan. 2 in Las Vegas.

Miocic was originally slated to face Ben Rothwell at this weekend’s UFC Fight Night 76 in Dublin, but an undisclosed injury forced him off the card. The UFC was unsuccessful in finding a suitable replacement to fight Rothwell, so he was also removed from the card and a bout pitting Paddy Holohan against Louis Smolka was eventually elevated to main support status.

Having bounced back from a loss to Junior dos Santos by knocking out Mark Hunt, Miocic will be looking to put a halt to Arlovski’s hot streak and crush the Belarusian’s dream of regaining the belt he last wore in 2006.

Arlovski, at 36 years of age, is currently in the midst of the most impressive winning streak of his career. His recent victory over Frank Mir put him at six consecutive wins, including knockouts of Travis Browne and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.

Getting back to the UFC heavyweight championship would put a cherry on top of a career that reaches back to 1999.

The UFC 195 main event features welterweight champion Robbie Lawler putting his belt on the line against Carlos Condit at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Does Arlovski have any magic left? Or is this the end of his unexpected title run?

I think this is the end of his run. I just don't see how he will get by Stipe.

Jesus! The UFC powers that be must not want Arlovski to get that shot... What is the point of this fight, outside of trying to end a run? Miocic won't earn a thing but the W with a win. He isn't close to a shot is he?

Yeah I mean find me someone with a better recent run than Arlovski who hasn't already gotten a title shot! There really isn't a more intriguing option right now, but apparently Dana has a plan that doesn't involve him.
I'd much rather see Arlovski vs Werdum II than Velasquez vs Werdum II.

Well, I guess Arlovski/Werdum II has no chance in hell at being worse than Arlovski/Werdum I.

yeah, but at least it was moderately competitive, unlike Velasquez/Werdum I.

Arlovski actually has a chance, they are both technical fighter, fighting from the distance, mostly. Arlovski might even be a better striker and probably a more seasoned grappler but Miotic just hits harder and is more durable. That will be Arlovski downfall, again. He will be winning the fight on points until Miotic catches him through that neatly trimmed beard,
Hoping for Arlovski win. Old school must prevail, just a bit longer. Plus, Miotic is just not a likable guy to me.

Yeah I'm not 100% convinced that Arlovski CAN'T win. It's just that it seems like he is being required to win more than your average title contender.
And I don't really even get why! He's typically an exciting fughter, he has a strong fan base, he's marketable, the comeback story will sell. So it's not like he's a hard sell!
I don't know, I must be missing something.
