Sylvia is FAR from being a garbage fighter. For one do you understand the fact he has 16 wins by KO? I don't care if he is boring or not, his left hand can put ANYONE to sleep, period.
Also his ground skills against Monson show that he is a well rounded fighter. Probally not the most well rounded, but is clearly moving up.
I can't stand these people that think just because some of Sylvia's fights were boring as hell it means he is a horrible fighter. He isn't, and hes getting better. I'm not saying hes unstoppable, or will keep the belt longer than another fight or two, but at the end of the day, he is still a very good fighter.
Edit: And to "arwoodco"'s previous post above mine...
I agree 100%. Cotoure is a very smart fighter, and I'm not even trying to say Cotoure won't win. I'm just saying people who think Tim Sylvia are horrible are very very mistaken.
