I have to root for AA in this one. I really want to see Arlovski back in the UFC and I don’t think they will bring anyone in that loses to Fedor at this point. I just don’t see Dana risking someone, that Fedor destroys, walking through his HW division.
If he beats Fedor, I can see the UFC throwing a bunch of cash at him and giving him an immediate shot at the winner of Lesnar/Nog(prediction). This would knock Fedor out of the #1 spot until he comes to the UFC.
This is my master plan to get all the best HWs in the UFC. I like competition amongst organizations, but let them complete in the stacked divisions. I would rather see the best HWs and LHWs under one umbrella at this point.
If I were Affliction, I would have signed AA to a mutli-fight deal to avoid this. If he wins, I would immediately schedule the rematch.
