If Tim is in shape and motivated which I think he will be then honestly I think he will make it a competitive fight.

Tim was always good in his heyday and using his reach to keep his opponents on the outside and Cormier is a shorter HW and is also a smaller one. Sylvia has been in shape lately and yet everyone wants to point at the comical fat SHW Tim's pathetic showings. He is still the guy who was a UFC champ and who was close to beating Big Nog. Tim is 26-5 at HW and has only lost to former Pride or UFC champs. If Cormier sleeps on Sylvia it is a fight that Tim could potentially win.

I don't expect Tim to win but to write him off the way everyone is, its kind of foolish IMO. This is the toughest fight that was available for DC outside the UFC IMO.

Toxic - Big Tim has lost to Ray Mercer and Abe Wagner. I don't remember either of them holding gold in the UFC or Pride.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

This is proof that Strikeforce is better off without the HW division if this is the last fight they can come up with for it. They had no other HW's than Barnett left under contract to give Cormier?

LAME!

Kinda sad that this will go down in history as the last SF HW fight ever :/

It should've been something legendary, Cormier vs. Reem, Reem vs. Fedor - something memorable...

If they could have found a way to have him do a champion VS champion fight with Cole Konrad then that would have been the best by far.

Apparently this isn't happening. Dana said in an interview this was BS and Ariel tweeted it wasnt true.

Both were at SHW when he was fat and out of shape. At HW he has only lost to UFC or Pride champs.

Cormier is going to tear Sylvia apart worse the he controlled Barnett. Sylvia cannot go against top level wrestlers which is what Cormier is. Not to mention the kind of fighter Cormier is will be too much for Sylvia.
