Where the fuck is Andrei Arlovski???

Everyone wants to know where Andrei Arlovski is. Well, the answer is simple: he’s riding the fucking bench until Dana decides he’s learned his lesson. What lesson? I dunno really. Stop sucking it up in the Octagon? Sure, Arlovski’s third bout with Tim Sylvia was pretty terrible. But I’m pretty sure one of the muscles in Andrei’s leg snapped off the bone and rolled up like an old window blind in the first round. I’m not 100% sure on this, just shooting from the hip. I’d look it up on google but I’ve drank 3 energy drinks and can barely sit down, let alone do research.

So, Andrei’s shit match vs Tim Sylvia had more to do with Tim than with Andrei. Then Andrei smashed Marcio Cruz in a pleasantly aggressive manner, so no complaints there. Then he faced off against Fabricio Werdum, which drew out to a really boring decision. I’m pretty sure this match was when the UFC decided Andrei wasn’t earning his paycheck. But when you think about it, there’s been lots of other guys who have done far worse than Andrei who are still fighting. Josh Koscheck’s inaction against Diego Sanchez and Forrest Griffin’s gun shy dance with Hector Ramirez come to mind. I mean, for fucks sake … Josh couldn’t beat a guy who just found out he probably had Hep C. And don’t even get me started on Forrest’s inability to finish that Latino Pillsbury dough boy.

Come to think of it though, both Josh and Forrest ARE getting punished in a way. Josh is the unfortunate rebound fight for Georges St Pierre. And Forrest is being sacrificed to the almighty god known only as “Shogun”. Sure, the past 6 months have taught us that anything can happen, but I rate their chances of not getting wrecked the same as a snowball’s chance in Hell. I guess it comes down to this: Dana White can’t punish Arlovski by making him a stepping stone … the Pitbull is simply too good for that to be a realistic plan. So the other option is to bench him, and that’s what they’re doing.

    Once he lets his hair grow back out and puts his fangs in, well see the old Arlovski. I was hoping for his next fight the rumors were true and would have been against Vera. But watching Sylvia’s head get smashed instead will do just fine for me.

    I am all for punshing fighters who fight boring fights. What bothers me is the inconsistency the UFC shows. Kongo has had several god awful performances and gets rewarded with a shot at Cro Cop. Some people call that punishment, but think about it. Cro Cop is the best opponent for Kongo style wise other than Dennis Alexio.

    Cote was a joke in his last fight with all that clowning around and now he is on the main card. Kos and Diego both come out of that bore fest and don’t gget punished. And Machida’s fight had to be dropped from the telecast it was so bad yet he gets Nakamura.

    If Cro Cop is on his game this time around I believe that Kongo will be punished…
    Machida can’t be punished simply cause Dana needs to built up that division with some more “UFC” talent before the rest of the Pride Ringers come in and crash the party, the UFC needs to have some of their fighters as champions or competitive or it’ll be embrassing for them…

    the reason andre gets benched rather than Forrest or Kos is that he costs 10x what those other two cost when he fights…

    I always thought that Dana never wanted Tim to get the belt back but gave the Sylvia-Arlovski fight the go ahead due to the lack in the heavyweight division, plus he never thought Tim would win and since they were both fan favorites. So mabye Dana’s punishing Arlovski for his boring fights but I think Dana holds some prejudice againts him for those loses

    Speaking of a shit match, is the UFC still using the same flooring as the one that was used when Tim Sylvia smeared his turd all over it? If so, that’s a pretty good strategy imposed by Tim b/c I know I wouldn’t fight in a turd-infested cage (even more so since it is Tim’s turd).

    Fuck you fucking blow job!!

    Timmy Sylvia may suck cock, but he gets the seats filled with fans that want to see him get his ass rocked..
