-Andrei Arlovski vs. Brendan Schaub

Round 1: Arlovski and Schaub circle for about 30 seconds, and oddly enough, it’s the former heavyweight champ who initiates the clinch battle against the fence. When they break apart it’s Schaub who lands a couple hard punches. This same sequence happens twice more before the horn sounds.

Round 2: Schaub keeps throwing an overhand right without setting it up, and Arlovski replies by ducking and digging his fists into his body. Add to that equation a ton of tentativeness and a single uppercut by Schaub landing and you have the story of Round 2.

Round 3: A little over a minute in Schaub succeeds in getting the Belarussian down with a body-lock takedown, and for the next few minutes does his best with some mostly ineffectual ground-and-pound. Eventually Arlovski kicks him away, and the round ends with him swinging hard and Schaub ducking down for takedown attempts.
