    I thought soccer kicks were allowed in One fc. I guess they changed their minds after Roger Huerta got his block knocked off?

    • David says:

      Cant be, baroni used soccer kicks to the head and he won his fight, whats going on

      • What? says:

        I actually checked into this rule further and it states that if Phil Baroni wins by soccer k

      • What? says:

        I actually checked into this rule further and it states that if Phil Baroni wins by soccer kicks then nobody on the same card can win the same way

          I watched it live and Arvloski dropped big learch like a wet sack of potatoes and the fight was over. WINNER Arvloski by TKO

    • Mike says:

      The ref needs to O.K. it. It’s called the “open attack” rule. The ref did not give the O.K before he kicked him.

      • dave says:

        when dooes the ref give the ok??? is he suppose stand over him and wait for the ref to give the open attack ok?? or the ref tells them befor they fight?? i thought maybe hw cant do that cuz to dangerous….tim was done even if there was no soccer kick….thats bullshit the ref should have called it sooner,,arlovski could just vhave pounded him out like hendo did to fedor

        • MMACRAVER says:

          Don’t bother trying to understand how a rule like that would actually work…. It’s just plain stupid.

          The ref is supposed to have spidey senses… and inhuman brain processing power. That way he can IMMEDIATELY assess the downed fighter and give the yay or nay on a headkick.

    • dave says:

      they must not allow hw for soccer kicvks cuz phil baroni won via soccer kickis in sam,e one fc5

    I don’t know how Tim sylvia was ever champion of the UFC. Kinda makes them look bad.

    • magoo says:

      Just goes to show you how far this sport has come, and how much more evolved the fighters are.

    • Ang says:

      Arlovski was champion of the ufc too.

      • jbeamazing says:

        Joe daddy was champ at one point everybody knows the H W division was lame back in the day and that’s why fedors wins against former ufc champs not matter

    • Mayor of Deviance says:

      I think it more has to do with the fact that Tim Sylvia has not been ANYWHERE the same since he tested postitive back in his UFC days. He used to look like a well conditioned fighter, but he came back after that as what you see today.

    i Put penis in my mouth pretty frequently

  4. Tokofeigy says:

    Those looked like baby kicks only….what a loser Sylvia is

  5. 123 says:

    he looked like he was winning anyway

  6. Nuthugger says:

    And Sylvia has been doing begging videos saying how he should return to the UFC…what a fuckin joke

  7. Wsheets says:

    Soccer kicks make me sick.

    Even though these are mild ones.

  8. Nuthugger says:

    So nice to see Terrible Tim show how much he deserves to be back in UFC….he deserves F** ALL

  9. stephen riddle says:

    Andre said fuck it, ima kick this bitch in the head! I bet those kicks hurt coming from andre

  10. danielrchargers says:

    I am a beast mode

  11. Simon Morgan says:

    Either allow head kicks or dont. This waiting for a referees permission crap will only confuse fighters.

    • Boom Boom says:

      I agree. Either allow them or not. In the heat of battle, there’s no time to worry about a ref’s permission. Fifty (or more) percent of the time, the REF isn’t even sure because he’d have to look at the downed fighter and make a judgement. Whatever Arlovski won this hands down in my book.

  12. stephen riddle says:

    I see the cuss word got edited, someone on the site should just tell people not to cuss and we will not.

  13. jbeamazing says:

    Damn the dana haters have to shut there mouth at least for today

  14. Bjj BB says:

    Without the kick tim still lost!

  15. stevo the great says:

    And Tim Sylvia has been campaigning to get back in the UFC! Yeah right….can’t even beat Arvloski who was cut from Strikeforce. Have a nice life Tim….but fighting is just not for you….you are too gumpy and fat.

  16. gringo says:

    Who cares..Sylvia is a washed up bum anyway…he wouldnt even be in the top 10 in strikeforce…he was goin out even before the kicks..looks good>>>good job Arlovski

  17. Arlowski was in the zone you know like when you shoot a basketball and your like “Jordan!”.He was like “Wandi!”.

  18. stonerman says:

    The kicks looked like they glanced off his shoulder onto his face. Either way they didnt look that hard.

  19. J Horus says:

    Few have been more deserving.

  20. b-rad says:

    Fallin like a sack of potatoes

  21. Shadleigh says:

    Sylvia’s fat ass was finished either way

  22. Matt says:

    Soccer kicks are allowed only if the ref allows an “open attack” to a downed opponent. Ridiculous rule.

  23. R4J4 says:

    What a fat joke sylvia is and to think the guy was campaigning for a return to the UFC and actually believes he can hang and bang with the likes of Overeem and JDS, the fat bum would probably get killed. Think arlovski did him a favour, he needs to find a new career.
