monsons not gonna go strait in on sylvia (hopefully) he just has to circle him..wait for the wrong kick..and shoot.
hes only giving up like 15 pounds and a foot in weight which means hes a shitload stronger. tall guy on the ground (especially on his back) with a ball of power like that is trouble.
monson did some amature boxing which i think will help him alot.
I like the sound of that. Brandon Vera I think will be the next great HW which holds the title for a while. I think it is a matter of time before Tim loses the title again. I just think that to be a true champ you must have the whole package and he has no ground game at all. I know the likes of Chuck has only stand up but the difference being he has great take down defence and if he does get taken down he has some ground work under his belt whereas Tim will struggle being on his back!
