i think it all will be decided in the first round.
if monson can take him down and controal it its gonna frustrate tim
if tim can sprawl and stay up its gonna frustrate monson
monson took chuck to a card and hasnt lost in the ufc until the 3rd..so he may have some cardio on him
also hes boxed as a hw, most of which i can only guess were bigger with a huge reach advantage just like timmy.
oh and he wasnt ever KO'ed as a boxer and i dont believe anytime early in the ufc.
"Monson's nickname “The Snowman” came after he beat four Brazilian grapplers in a row. They suggest he was like a snowball, growing in strength as he rolled around."
i really just want to see tim on the ground since hes used to being the bigger stronger guy. I think monson will be signifigently stronger like hughes vs. gracie where he basically moved gracie to where he saw fit.
(and i love the gracies for the record)
