Thanks lol. Honestly, even if Fedor loses it won't change my thoughts on him as the greatest of all time.

Yeah, I see it that way as well. He's not going to dick around on the feet, he'll strike to get in range for the takedown. Tim Sylvia's submission defense is definitely lackluster, but he is pretty good at scrambling for his size. I just think Fedor's going to be able to control him from inside the guard, deal some damage to the body, then look for a submission of sorts.

The fight will repeatedly stood-up, only for Fedor to resume taking Tim down, and wearing him out for however many rounds it is for.
