Chuck is a Division 1 wrestler Tim is not.

Big guys who could grapple.

True, but I'd rather watch Randy fight than Little Tim.

Randy has the right style to beat Tim. And for those of you who are gonna say, "but Monson couldn't take him down," Randy takedowns are head and shoulders better than Monson's (literally and figuratively). And being taller than Monson he'll be able to put more pressure on Sylvia when he gets the takedown. And I don't know about you but Monson did well against 6'7 Silvia on his feet and Randy is a better striker than Monson with more height. The way I see it is if Tim don't knock him out Randy will wrestle out a 5 round decision. Willing to sig bet.
