Randy is roughly the same height as Fedor, but he passed into Tim's half-guard with relative ease and punished him accordingly. Fedor has sat in the most dangerous MMA HW guard in the world 2.5 times and obliterated his opponent without being rendered ineffective.

I don't think Fedor will finish Tim by TKO, but Fedor does not lay and pray, he sits in a guard, stacks his opponent's legs, postures up, and drops bombs. Tim Sylvia struggled with Randy Couture's ground and pound from half-guard, and he's going to be in even bigger trouble when Fedor gets to that position
I completely agree with your assesment of Fedor. But that fight with Randy shouldn't be looked at as a testament to Tim's guard. His back was clearly ailing him bad that night. That being said, the Monson fight should be thrown out too. Because Monson is way too short and his cardio was nowhere near good enough.

Fedor will by far be Tim's toughest competition and the match-up is terrible for him. I just have a sneaky suspicion Tim is going to pull this one off. Of course I have yet to pick a big-time Tim Sylvia fight correctly (with obvious exceptions Monson, Cabbage, etc.). So everyone should just bet on the guy that I don't.

wait hold up a god damn second. Why is Couture still going through hell trying to get this fight and Sylvia gets it within, IDK, 4 weeks?

Something smells weird here

Tim hits very hard; that's his one chance. Catch Fedor on the button. Otherwise Tim's done. Randy tossed him around and I don't see Fedor being any different. Once it hits the ground it's only a matter of time.

You never know though. Fedor hasn't fought a top level opponent in a couple of years. There has to be some rust. In that time Tim's fought Arlovski, Couture, Vera and Nog.

true that, just out of curiousity, when Fedor fights Timmy and shows Tim what a "big *****" he is by smashing his face then submitting Tim does that forgive the fact that his career hit a bad patch when the promotion he fought for went under and the comp that took it over had a guy that Fedor didnt see eye to eye with negotiating....i mean it was stated on another thread that people forget how good this guy is and fighting a few bad fighter over the past 18-20 mths in NO way takes away from this guys abilitiess or legacy...watch some old fights timmy is in trouble and i like it...you talk shit ou get put in place...timmy talked now its time to pay

Not really.

Randy is under contract with the UFC still. Even if he wins his legal battle he is not free until October at the earliest.

Tim is a free agent. He is no longer under contract with the UFC. He could have signed a fight with Fedor the day after his contract ran out.

Fedor needs to fight. I suspect he doesn't want to wait until October on a maybe from Randy.

Randy will only be p*ssed if Tim wins.

I just came back from work and find this thread. I'm so happy now that Fedor is finally going to fight a ranked fighter. Not just any ranked fighter but Timmah himself.

I hope this is a fight that will last longer then 2 minutes. If I were Tim, I would take the Cung Le approached to this fight which is working on my scramble and trying to keep the fight standing. I think Tim can tool Fedor standing but the minute it goes on to the ground Sylvia will either get armbarred or get a kimura slapped on him.
