Phil Baroni is the greatest athlete to ever grace the cage. He is a legend in the sport. What has Jardine or Sherk done that even comes close to what Phil has achieved in his career(which is FAR from over, by the way)?

NYBA Champ @ 170!

Dave Menne being tagged 1 million times before gravity can take its effect>Anything you just said.

Phil Baroni's talents defy physics.

And Minowa would beat Sherk and Jardine too. The competition is a lot harder over in Japan. Ask Cro Cop.

Vera and Nogueira are both 3 inches taller than Fedor which makes it much easier for them to get inside of his jab than it will be for Fedor. Sylvia didn't get takendown very often in either of those fights. Sylvia's jab makes it very hard to come in Tim is 8 inches taller than Fedor and while I'm not sure of the reach advantage he defiantly has one. I wouldn't be shocked to see Fedor win but his size is a huge disadvantage against Sylvia.

If this does happen, here is what you are going to see: Fedor on his back with Tim's back. Tim is in his favorite position when someone has his back, holding onto one of Fedor's wrists with his left hand and his right arm up beside he head.

- A single death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic.
- It's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.

See you Space Cowboy...

I have no problem with aaronyman being a fan of whoever the hell he wants however I would like to say that Keith Jardine is a very overrated fighter on this forum and really isn't the top notch guy people make him out to be. I would say he is Micheal Bisping with power.

I agree with you on it being harder for Fedor to get inside but Sylvia negates some of his reach because he hunches over.

Well he did beat Forrest Griffin, who is fighting for the title, and also beat Chuck Liddell, who held the title for like 3 years... that's kind of impressive.

Same here, I'm definitely rooting for Timmah but my cash is on Fedor. This is awesome, can't wait to see it, I'm just bummed it's with HDNet Fights.
