...I just knocked you out cold. Arlovski goes for a flying knee after kind of controling round one and getting Fedor into the corner, to which Fedor counterpunched and put Arlovski OUT as he landed on his face. Wow.

Arlovski looked really good in that fight. He slipped a few punches through and that thrust kick at the end was nice. His defense to Fedor's clinch was good. Then he tried that stupid flying knee. What the hell was that for? It wasn't even particularly fast. True, Fedor took a gamble in defending against the knee by punching Arlovski's jaw off instead of posturing up and checking it, but he had plenty of time to get the punch off. Eh, oh well, another one bites the dust. Hopefully we FINALLY get the Fedor/Barnett (who, by the way, looked awesome against Gilbert Yvel) fight next.

While Arlovski looked pretty good before the KO, Fedor was patiently waiting for a mistake and was never in anything close to trouble. First opening he saw, the fight was over. He'll cut down Barnett too, but it might be an entertaining fight.
Arlovski looked OK, but Fedor never looked hurt or in trouble, and at the end of the day he was still KO'd in round one.
I mean, the entire fight was more or less striking, which would be the one area Arlovski would hope to have an advantage and he got knocked cold by the first real hit he took.
Dumb mistake on his part going for a FLYING KNEE, but I tend to think Fedor was just waiting for a mistake. Arlovski would never have lasted five rounds without making at least one , and Fedor showed he knew how to take advantage when it came, so it was only ever going to be a matter of time IMO. Unless he found a way to knock Fedor out I guess, but that's a pretty big ask.
Barnett....I dunno, he was dominant, but you really should be finishing fights off much sooner when you basically spend 50% of the match in the full-mount (although "choking on my own blood" is pretty cool as excuses for not finishing him off go). Bottom line, if you need three chances to finish off Yvel, you'll probably struggle against Fedor but it should still be a fun* fight.
Technically, he doesn't HAVE to forfeit the belt, and I don't think Ring would strip him of the only title that matters (their title) until he committed to a division, but theoretically he could bounce back-and-forth from one division to the other.
