Andrei Arlovski has gotten a lot of heat over the years for his glass jaw, and I expect he’s going to get a lot more now. Brett Rogers just knocked him out 22 seconds into their fight, backing him against the cage and popping him on the button 3 quick times. Arlovski went down on all fours and the fight was stopped.
I was pretty critical of Strikeforce for throwing Brett Rogers under the bus, and I’m not about to change my tune because Rogers managed to win. Strikeforce lucks out because they now have a heavyweight contender that charges 1/20th the price Andrei Arlovski does. And Andrei … whew. Maybe him and Tim Sylvia can compare who has the more humiliating loss now. If I was him I wouldn’t want to look at the heavyweight rankings for a while.
