I see what you mean. Arlovski did suffer a flash knockout that no one could have recovered from. I'm not so sure he will not suffer the same fate again, since that can happen to anyone that steps into the Octogon with Sylvia. However, it is those types of wins that make that belt jump from fighter to fighter in that division, which is why I see it as very unpredictable. Also, from what I said before, now that I think more about it, I think Vera would certainly have more of a challange against AA than he would against Sylvia, since AA is more well rounded.
I would love to see AA in Pride, just to see how he matches up. I frustrates me that there have to be multiple company's like that, but I guess that is just how the cookie crumbles...
