The most dramatic injury of the evening was to Andrei Arlovksi's jaw, and teeth. What appears to be a break and missing teeth likely occured at the end of the first round, when Johnson knocked Arlovski down twice.

The bout likely would have stopped then, but Arlovski was saved by the bell. There are reports that the bell sounded 8 or 9 seconds too late. Arlovski fought valiantly for the next two rounds, ultimately losing a unanimous decision to Anthony Johnson.

What are you talking about......he may never be the same after that fight. Aging fighters who are slowing down and getting their bodies wrecked dont stick around for a long time...

Good fight, Props to the Pitbull. Even tho he lost, the mans a winner in my book. You don't see to many fighters keep going after they had their jaw broke and teeth knocked out. I hope he recovers and comes back strong. Its fights like this that will keep Andrei around for a while.

Up with Vale Tudo rules. No rounds, no saving by the bell, fight would have ended without AA risking more serious injury. Arlovsky's tough but discretion would have been the better part of valor. And try calling him Andrea to his face.

Was rooting for Andre here... Did Rumble knock out the teeth or were they already gone? I cannot find picture to verify.

This was one of the more gruesome fights I've seen in awhile. I always wondered why we don't see more teeth getting destroyed and this was a brutal example of jaw reconstruction.
