Ew, Tim is one of the grossest UFC fighters ever! He has some long arms though! If he can keep any fight standing he'd destroy people! Sometimes all it takes is long arms and legs!

I would say the limit was 265 lb because Wiki doesn't list the fight as a superheavy weight bout. While I like Big Tim I would rather see him in SF before coming to UFC and see how he does against DC, Barnett, Sergi as well as Lavar, del Sario-presuming they get sent back to SF. Maybe he finally get that Mir rematch he's been wanting.

I think he could realistically beat some legit opponents. I mean legit in the since of ufc calibre, but not necessarily in the top ten hws.

Guys he could hang with: lavar, struve, schaub, russow, rothwell, morecraft, oli, herman, gonzaga, de fries. So there are ten guys I think he could hang with right off the bat, granted a few id give odds over timmy but he could reasonably beat any of them. Not to mention this guy is a multiple time ufc hw champion. I think there is some hatred for timmy in the management of the ufc, lets face it, hes had a lot of sucky fights in the ufc and he was very bad for business back in the day. His teammates didn't even like him. There he was holding ufc gold and they'd not even hang out with the guy. I feel kind of sorry for timmy, but he's just a very unlikable person.

Did you guys ever see him on that dating show? Jesus timmy.. I really wish the best for him.

Well he is certainly not a complete can. Though I agree he can win some UFC fights I seriously doubt he would get another title shot. The heavyweight division was seriously weak when he was champion.

I disagree I think the HW is always thin and weak. I see him doing pretty good against most of the division.

I beg to differ, the UFC heavyweight division right now is anything but weak. Back when Sylvia was champion he took it from Ricco Rodriguez (touch and go heavyweight), then defended it again Gan McGee (never any good), lost to Frank Mir, had the trilogy with Arlovski, defended against Monson, then lost it to the Great Randy Couture. Right now the heavyweight division has Champion JDS, Cain, Shane Carwin (recovering from an injury), Overeem (suspended), Big Nog, Roy Nelson, list goes on with good fighters.

Another reason why Sylvia may not make it in the current UFC heavyweight division. He got taken out for a 47 year old man in his MMA debut. Does that sound like a man who could make another title run?
