Tim Sylvia v Josh Barnett

On the second part of the Wandy v Chuck bout is a fight between the man who, I think, should be the UFC heavyweight champion versus the actual UFC heavyweight Champion.

Tim "The Maine-iac" Sylvia (22-2-0)
Vitals: 6'8" 260lbs (118kg)
Style: Miletich Fighting Systems
Titles: UFC Heavyweight Champion
Fact: Tim Sylvia has not gone to the ground since losing to Andrei Arlovski at UFC 51, where he was quickly submitted.
Streak: won 5 (has won 8 of his last 10 fights)

Josh "The Baby-faced Assassin" Barnett (18-3-0)
Vitals: 6'3" 250lbs (113kg)
Style: Wrestling
Titles: None
Fact: Josh is no stranger to beating taller men. He has successfully grounded and pounded Semmy Schilt (6'11") and Gan McGee (6'10").
Streak: won 3 (won 8 of his last 10 fights)

I voted for Josh Barnett.

Barnett hasn't been KO'd since UFC 30, by Pedro Rizzo and he wasn't KO'd when he last fought Cro-cop.

When he crushed Mark Hunt, who has a way lower center of gravity than guys he's used to fighting, in 2 minutes I was convinced that the Barnett who fought in the UFC was back.

Barnett easaly. His ground game is way superior than Tims and he can stand with anyone, has only been knocked out ones in his career against Pedro Rizzo after a stupid hands down goin in to clinch mistake that he paid for against the vicious striker.Tim has a punchers chance thats it but i dont see it

I've never seen Tim drop anyone with one big clear punch. He throws great combinations, but so does Mark Hunt and Semmy Schilt and Barnett crushed both of them pretty easily.

I don't think the puncher's chance matters, but maybe I'm not giving Tim enough credit... on second thought, no.

Barnett would win. He has very good striking and good striking defence. He also has amazing submission something tim doesn't. Just one question though. They are both steroid user's. So juice fight or no juice fight?

LMAO I'd go with Tim on the Juice...and if they fight with no juice I'd say Josh lol :P

But I guess it really would depend on where they fight...PRIDE or UFC And how well the other can play in the other mans backyard. Away games are always the hardest

Well Josh did fight in the UFC before...but lost to Pedro Rizzo, who later lost to Andrei Arlovski, who later lost to Tim Sylvia....

So any fighter can land any puch to end the fight at any time

You know what ironman < this is one of the hardest pride vs ufc mathups yet.... sylvias striking vs barnetts grappling... alll it takes wit Sylvia is one punch , and Josh barnett is capable of taking anyone down... i dont think ive ever seeen anyone take sylvia down before , and Barnett has only beeen KO'd once in his careeer, its a reallly tufff calll, i think if SYLVIA is able to keep barnettt on the outside he can get the KO, if not Barnettt by sub , id bet my $$$ on the underdog in this one
