I've got Rumble in this one. Wrestling's gonna play a huge factor in this fight.

Rumble is probably taking the fight in hopes of Impressing the UFC and returning there at 205 when his WSOF contract ends Phone Post

I like Rumble, but I'm pretty sure Arlovski hits alot harder than Vitor and Rumble is going to be looking up at the lights while Arlovski is getting announced as the winner, that is if Arlovski's back has healed up.

I'm pretty sure it's fairly even.

I think Rumble takes this unless AA takes him down, I'm disappointed by this I really wanted to see AA have one last run in the UFC. Phone Post

Seems like a lose/lose fight for Arlovski. If he wins, he beat a much smaller dude that formerly fought at WW, and if he loses, he lost to a dude that formerly fought at WW. Hopefully the money makes it worth it. I'd imagine he could have found a fight with just as much appeal against a HW. On the flipside, win/win for Rumble, who if he loses, he lost to a former UFC HW champ, and if he wins, he beat a former UFC HW champ. Of course he doesn't want to lose, but if he does, it won't be nearly as big of a hit as Arlovski would take.

Good match up!

About weight class changers: UG's own Brian Ebersole has fought at HW,LHW,MW and WW. If he now drops to LW as planned that will be his 5th weight class.

Left kick cemetery - Rumble will attempt to bulk up to like 300 pounds then miss weight.

Why is rumble fighting at HW? He doesn't have the frame for it really. Why did he give up on MW that was a reasonable weight to fight at for him if he managed to keep in shape between fights. He would have great power at 185 and still have a decent size and strength advantage over most guys.
He likes cheeseburgers... Phone Post

You have never met rumble then I met him in 2010 at the Arnold classic he was huge I am guessing he Wilkinson weigh in at 225-230 Phone Post

Technically Rumble never fought at middleweight...since he didn't make weight for either fight.

Bearded Collie Herds Orca -  Did rumble ever make weight at 185? I know the VB fight was supposedbto be 185 but rumble came in really heavy Phone Post

I don't think he ever made weight for 185 either......So, 170, 205, and HWT.....I am surprised he is not staying at 205 longer.....Must be the promotion needs a fight with two names and they don't have many.......It is an interesting fight......

I think AJ could be very dangerous at HW. He has all the tools to be a champ at HW. Good wrestling, great stand up, good submissions, and he is explosive as hell and if he hits someone they are going to get KO'd.

I'm trying to decide if Rumble skipping MW all together is more impressive, or less impressive, I'm leaning towards more at the moment...

Good submissions? Based on?
