| | Arlovski KO's Cruz at UFC 66?
What do you guys think about this Arlovski vs Cruz match at UFC 66? I think that Cruz went into the fight with Frank Mir as the underdog, and came out of it with a fairly easy victory. In this fight I see Cruz as the underdog again, but this time I think he will get KO'd by Arlovski. Cruz is so good on the ground that Arlovski will make no attempt to take him down. So I see AA going at Cruz with full force in a stand up war. Now I doubt it will be much of a war, I see AA knocking Cruz out in the first round. If AA comes in there healthy and with the same hunger he had when he was UFC Champ, Cruz will not last long. AA is a good striker, and even though Cruz has a huge hight and reach advantage, AA should make quick work of this match. Cruz did not look great in that stand up battle with a striker like Monson, and if AA keeps the match off the ground i don't see him loosing. Yet, if for some reason AA and Cruz hit the mat, then it's a totally different ballgame, but I can't see AA letting the fight get to that point.
Winner Andre Arlovski, TKO/KO (Strikes) 1st Round.
