your name says it all, LOCO! did you even watch that fight? if andreis punches didnt land then why was fedor all read and have some blood? the only reason that punch put him out was the fact AA jumped into it, flying knee.

No one is claiming that fedor reactions to arlovski dropping his hands was lucky, that was pure skill. The fact that arlovski decided to drop his guard was the lucky part.
I've watch the fight over and over, and fedor was in no real danger. He was very good at avoiding arlovski fast hands. But arlovski landed more hits, and was scoring more points. If arlovski had not drop his hands, and keep up the great work, he would have won by decision.

Arlovski is an excellent fighter but has recently shown himself susceptible to explosions of power. Fedor's flying knee was only one example. Another would be Brett Rogers flurry of punches at the beginning of round one which knocked him out.

The more I watch the show the more I am disliking Rampage and finding more respect for Rashad. It's just a bum deal for Rampage's guys, he just truly doesn't care to help them fulfill their dreams at becoming a UFC fighter. Some of the guys on his team have some real potential and this is the last shot for a few of them, but their abilities will never be seen because of the shotty coaching by Rampage. I don't really know what he's even doing on the show but acting a damn fool. I wish he'd have to spend more time on the A-team set and they would put another fighter in for him, he doesnt deserve to be a coach.

Rampage didn't get the a-team role until well after TUF was done taping

agree - i'm doing a complete 180 on these guys and a lot of it has to do with this show

i do kind of feel bad for rampages guys - but i also think they may be getting in some more quality work than what the cameras show (i hope at least)

Yeah I see that now, I figured it was around the same time since he had backed out of fighting Rashad after the show is done, but it looks like he got the movie about 2 months after the The Ultimate Fighter Show was done which in turn meant he won't fight Rashad. Which would have been a great fight, I'd love to see Rashad put him on his ass.
