The winner shall be considered as one of the other potential opponents.
The Brazilian Crowd was not really kind to Arlovski but he earned a lot of respect without any doubt through his fighting skills. He was visibly delighted with his win which resulted in a dance. One could easily make ou the fact that he was overjoyed with the result. A lot of hardwork and passion had gone into the making of the man.
