Default ONE FC 5 Results: Andrei Arlovski and Tim Sylvia Fight to Controversial No-Contest

From MMAFighting.com:

Quote:
Aug 31, 2012 - In the fourth bout between former UFC heavyweight champions Andrei Arlovski and Tim Sylvia, there was no resolution as the bout ended in a controversial no contest at ONE FC 5.

Things started on a promising note.

The fight opened with Arlovski throwing multiple overhand rights, a tactic he would go back to throughout the course of the bout. Sylvia, however, implemented a strategy of using his size to lean on Arlovski, muscle him into the clinch along the fence and wear the Belarussian down. Sylvia was able to land numerous hard shots from the clinch even if referee Yuji Shimada had to separate the two numerous times due to inactivity.

In the second round, Arlovski fired a right hand that dislodged Sylvia's mouthpiece. They eventually clinch in the center of the cage, but were ultimately separated by the referee. Moments later, Arlovski dropped Sylvia with two hard right hooks as well as a left. He then followed up with two soccer kicks, the second of which landed with authority.

At first it seemed the fight was over as referee Shimada waved the action off. However, the referee was signaling a temporary halt to the bout. By ONE FC rules, a referee has to signal an 'open attack' before soccer kicks are allowed. Because Shimada didn't indicate to Arlovski the 'open attack' was permitted, the bout was halted and Sylvia was given time to recover. Arlovski was given a yellow card warning by Shimada as a result.

During the fight's intermission, Sylvia told referee Shimada and ringside officials he couldn't properly see and wasn't able to fight. As a result, the bout was stopped and due to Arlovski's illegal kick, declared a no contest.

Both fighters agreed to a fifth fight in ONE FC when interviewed by ONE FC commentator Jason Chambers after the fight.

You forgot ‘know when to run.’ I think Tim should run, if not away from MMA then at least occasionally, perhaps even during training?

I didn't watch the fights, only saw the posted gif. so far........Only good thing I can say is it's nice to see Tim kind of in shape again and not close to 400lbs. He really let himself go there for a while.

Both of these guys need to find something else to do IMO. Their fighting days are over.
