This looks for all the world like a "crush fight" for AA. If he can't beat this dude, retirement beckons.

Im picking AA by sub round 1......Tony Lopez would have been better maybe after AA wins Tony will call him out and that fight will happen next

That is definitely him my old training partner lost to him a couple years ago by triangle. He punches real hard so he has a shot at beating Arlovski.

Arlovski has lost 4 in a row. He needs to be built up again, Nothing wrong with that. I think a fight with Tony Lopez would be entertaining.

 Ray Lopez hits like a F-ing truck. i have see him fight a ton. I never see him win live, but he hits a ton. he would be 5-3 if the guy he fought in his 1st fight did not fail the drug test (weed) . Bad Match-up
