Question about Fedor

Quote:
One thing to keep in mind is that Emelianenko is allegedly very careful about who he faces. Reports indicate, for example, that he does not want to fight former UFC heavyweight champion, Tim Sylvia, because it is a bad style match up.
i got that bit from ufcmania.com can anyone shed some light on this cause from what i can see it seems like it's saying that fedor was dodging tim sylvia which doesnt make sense to me

Sylvia has the reach for a high kick and Sylvia is agile and since Timmy's fights usually go the distance he has conditioning on his side as well.

i see fedor as twice as good as tim in all areas. i think its crazy to think he picks his opponents hes been facing the best in the buisness for years now and has been in a lot of wars and bad style matchups and always came through.

I took it to mean that Fedor doesn't face anyone that's not worth his time, and why would we want to immediately see him face Time Sylvia? If he comes to the UFC, we've got to see an immediate HW unification bout just like we saw for LHW.

I don't see what Tim has that Schilt doesn't. Fedor beat Schilt.

Aren't there reports of not wanting to fight Barnett too? I can see why style wise he wouldn't want to face Big Tim, he has reach and isn't horrible with his kicks. If Fedor signs this is one fight I wouldn't mind seeing, maybe tim's title shot
