I worry about his Chin, but I have always been an AA fan

I'd like to know who he is going to be fighting. I'm concerned that he's not really at the K-1 level.

He is in the GP.

Arlovski might have a hard time with Catinas. I don't know how Arlovski will approach him, but he should have the speed advantage. If AA stands in front of him, he'll get punched a lot.

Sorry "Pitbull" fans, but the former UFC Heavyweight Champion is no longer participating in the K-1 World Grand Prix Final 16 from Olympic Park on Oct. 2 in Seoul.
Arlovski was expected to face Romanian kickboxer Raul Catinas on the HDNet televised event.
While the Belarusian didn't provide any details into the reason behind his withdrawal, Head Kick Legend is hearing that a possible broken nose may be the culprit:
The word has been spreading around that Arlovski has possibly suffered an injury in training, which could account for the last minute change in the card. The injury being talked about is a broken nose, and while broken noses in fighting are not uncommon at all, one before a fight could be detrimental for Arlovski, as a broken nose can lead to swelling of the nose as well as the eye, making it difficult to see. A simple tap on the nose could cause swelling and ruin his vision.
Then again, it should be noted that reports have surfaced that point to K-1's refusal to shell out the neccessary green to secure a fighter as widely recognized as Arlovski -- even in spite of hsi recent shortcomings inside the cage.
