That's the opinion the current UFC featherweight champion gave to AG Fight (via Bloody Elbow), when asked who he believed is the current best fighter in the game today. Though he isn't necessarily bothered by his No. 2 spot on the pound-for-pound rankin read news >>

The world keeps going around and around. So you always end up in the same place. Sometimes heavyweight really, truly feels that way. When Silva, the man on the rise, knocked off a faded Arlovski in 2010, it felt like a meaningful statement for both men's future. And for a time it was.

Andrei Arlovksi, world heavyweight title contender? This seemed a ludicrous idea in March 2013, when Arlovski lost to former welterweight and future light heavyweight Anthony Johnson. Arlovski just didn't have what it took anymore. Not to compete at the highest level. It seemed far-fetched even yesterday morning. Arlovski was scheduled to face Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva on the UFC's Fight Pass service on Saturday night, and a Silva win seemed a foregone conclusion. Even UFC commentators Jon Anik an read news >>
