    don’t like seening people have to go gonna say arlovski just cos id like to see more of him

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/knn03 knn03

    Josh Barnett. He’s been beaten by 3 people: Rizzo, Cro Cop, Big Nog. There’s no shame in that. And he’s on a 4 win streak. I wanna see him again when the roids settle down.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/memphis memphis

    Barnett needs his license back 1st then we might see him and Fedor go at it in SF

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/zito11 zito11

    haha Arlovski was actually looking pretty good against Fedor until he got KTFO

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Anwar Anwar

    None have future. Fedor the UFC champion killer put a big scar on their carreers

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/MrMrMrTwister MrMrMrTwister

    Joshua has’t fought Fyodor, so he still has his carrier intact…sort of…

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Kackvogel Kackvogel

    i hope arlovski find a way back!!!

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/UrHype UrHype

    Barnett is scum, he got busted in the UFC roiding and Dana wont let him back, then he basically killed Affliction busted AGAIN! RETIRE loser!
    Arlovski’s chin is GONE. Timmy’s chin is gone also and now hes like 270lbs of blubber, they should quit milking bad shows and retire. It sounds harsh, but I dont care to see any of them fight anymore. Ive lost all respect for all of them….Arlovski is still the better of the bunch though. Arlovski wants to pro box, but whats the point KO’s all over again IMO.

    STEROIDS=no future

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Rane Rane

    It’s sad that Josh tried to beat the system with Roids and it’s a given that is why he went to Japan to fight as he vacated his Championship Belt w/ the UFC.

    How could you take a fighter like that seriously? That is another Mark Kerr! What happened to Mark after he got of the Sauce? He was a nobody.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/StylesP StylesP

    wow theres a true fan right there! a guy loses 2 fights and now there completely useless! and you lose all respect for them…Like when Chuck KO’d randy twice and every one thought he was done….then he won the heavyweight title….and beat the shit out of Gab Gonzaga….and really, who has Andrei lost to? Fedor, who is arguably the best MMA fighter in the world. and Brett Rogers who ****ing bull rushed him and clobbered him like a crazy wildebeest. and his chin is gone? how does that make sense? he’s only been KO/Tko’d by some of the hardest hitters in MMA. I’m pretty sure Frank Mir, Cain Velasquez and even Cheick Kongo wouldn’t knock him out…and as for the rest of them Timmay/Barnett…I never liked them so I wouldn’t mind if I ever saw them fight again.

    I think Barnett is still a beast and can be very useful for both sf and ufc but he needs to get the roids thing settled first

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/BigNog22 BigNog22

    if barnett can stop doping himself,maybe he have a shot.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/MANOWAR MANOWAR

    I disagree Roids = Future ! Look at GSP !
    He took Roids to beat Bj Penn and he still has a bright futur in MMA !

    (it s a joke)

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/RoryKernaghan Rory Kernaghan

    he’s had like 3 chances. he needs an intervention and a clinical rehab. not another fight

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Rindy Rindy

    barnett is a great fighter all the pride fighter were juicing if he got clean it would be good for ufc

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/51JD51 51JD51

    I think all those guys could still be relevant in strikeforce or the UFC if they get their acts together. Barnett has the roids issue he needs to clear up as everyone already pointed out, Sylvia simply needs to rededicate himself to the sport and he’d be a threat again and Arlovski just needs to decide to focus on mma again over boxing and he could return to top form as well.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/willhammy willhammy

    none of those guys should retire and there not going to maybe they cant hang with the top 10 anymore but they have big names and can be stepping stones for upcoming fighters

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/UrHype UrHype

    Your right, Im not a true fan of these guys, good observation Captain Obvious. When you get cut from the UFC then lose in lesser orgs……

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/UrHype UrHype

    UFC wont touch him as well as other orgs. He single handedly ruined the last card for Affliction and already got cut from the UFC, hes got issues man. No-one will risk promotion on him except small orgs who think hes still a draw for publicity. When did he fight last? If he did since the Affliction foulup, I never heard anything…and thats the points basically.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/knn03 knn03

    He just need to stop getting knocked out and he’ll be alright.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/MANOWAR MANOWAR

    i think all those guy are the best ! in the top 5 of the HW division !

    That is the reason why Fedor wanted to fight them. To show to the worl that he is the number one.
    Today the currently number one in the HW division is Werdum. So fedor will fight him to prove once again that he is the best p4p fighter.

    (this comment was quite ironic)

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Yankeeshithead Yankeeshithead

    you dont go to rehab for steroids dingbat

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/ClosetCasey ClosetCasey

    Leave him alone you carpetbagger.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Madnessstill Madnessstill

    Whoa, arlovski out of the 3 of them????? Barnett hasn’t had any embarrassing moments lately, atleast not in the ring, why wouldn’t he be tops? Barnett can easily hang with the best today….the other 2 get knocked out by rookies

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/RoryKernaghan Rory Kernaghan

    you do if u r addicted wing nut

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/pound4pound pound4pound

    Barnett was ranked number 2 before he got caught with roids. He could come back if he finds a promotion that is willing to take the risk. Arlosvski has skills but his chin is weak but he could still have some fights on him, but I do not see Silvia coming back at all…

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/UndefeatedOfWest UndefeatedOfWest

    Really? Say that to Josh’s paycheck he gets from coaching and he is the only one I have ever seen get payed $500,000 just for coming to a fight. Anyways, I think he has more of a future in mma than the others because he is actually a successful coach.

    Also, despite holding the record of being caught with steroids the most times. His record and accomplishments are pretty darn good.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Krogan Krogan

    The UFC has tons of old has beens that ain’t never going to do anything in the sport again so why not these guys?

    Barnet hasn’t had a bad fight in a long time and except for his long lay of due to steroids he has looked good. And if you think there aren’t fighters that take steroids that just haven’t gotten caught think again.

    Arlovsky has lost his last two yes but to the best fighter of all time and another top 10 prob top 5 HW. Also there has been no sign in Arlovsky slacking of or losing the drive, he constantly looks in shape.

    Tim Sylvia I have little hope for, even in his prime I never considered him a top 10 HW and really looks terrible in every fight, even when he wins.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/ston3pony ston3pony

    Yeah… If you ignore the fact that all of his wins* are bogus, his record is great.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/ston3pony ston3pony

    If barnett can stop doping himself he’ll deflate and look like a less-fit Tim Sylvia.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/ston3pony ston3pony

    Jokeforce wants him (they will sign anybody), it’s simply a squabble over $$ at this point. They didn’t test Lashley before his fight, I wouldn’t be surprised if Barnett joins Jokeforce and is never caught juicing again, they’ll make sure of it.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/GracieHunter0718 GracieHunter0718

    Sylvia in my opinion has no chance. In has last couple fights he has looked outta shape.

    Arlovski has lost his last two fights, but to good opponents. In the Fedor fight he looked very impressive. He had Fedor going, then the flying knee. If it was anyone else who punched Andrei he would be fine, but Fedor has freak KO power..

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/jordanbeatty jordanbeatty

    i think out of all of them , barnett has the best chance.but he keeps gettin busted for steroids,and thats getting him no where right now in mma. arlovski is still a bad dude. i can see him making a comeback

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/mokoko mokoko

    no repect for fighters taking drugs Barnett probably got most of his win’s with taking roids

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/dropkickmurphy dropkickmurphy

    Arlovski…how many times has this guy snatched defeat from the jaws of victory? Most talented, unluckiest bastard to ever enter an octogon…lol

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/dropkickmurphy dropkickmurphy

    strikeforce doesnt test, the athletic commission does…get your facts straight.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/dropkickmurphy dropkickmurphy

    why don’t you all show some maturity on here….captain poopypants

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/dropkickmurphy dropkickmurphy

    it isn’t ironic…it is sarcastic. Had you thought you were intellegent and still made this stupid of a comment, it would be ironic
