Lol, you think Sherdog's opinion means shit? Sherdog is full of WWF fans that have followed Lesnar to MMA. They do have some people there that know their shit but sadly they are forum members and few and far between.
Like I said who has he beat and the only thing even remotely registering as note worthy is Werdum. Did you watch that fight? That wasn't a win that was Arlovski playing not to lose. It had shades of big Timmy with an almost an air of that douche bag that ran from Nate Quarry the whole fight then bitched afterwards.
Lol at Mario Cruz, Ben Rothwell and Roy Nelson. The only good HW competition besides Fedor is in the UFC atm so nobody else matters. Now if it was a few years back it would be Pride. Unfortunately, everyone good, minus Fedor, is in the UFC and Arlovski couldn't fucking hack it. He fucking lost to big Timmy whose only attributes are size and a very basic 1 2 punch combo. Randy out boxed Timmy and Arlovski is supposed to be a boxing guru but couldn't pull it off in the ring.
Your MMA math doesn't add up. Just because you beat somebody that has beat top condition doesn't make you best. Otherwise Forrest Griffin was #1 LHW because he beat Shogun and Rashad is now #1 because he beat Forrest who beat Shogun and Rampage. Now Rashad may eventually be #1 but you can see how this argument doesn't work well can't you?
I don't doubt that Arlovski could be good but he just hasn't given the fight world anything of value in years. If he could come out like the pitbull he is supposed to be and KTFO some guys that aren't cans then I could understand you're support.
