Hey hey everyone

Awesome news, I'm really looking forward to this, even if it might become a great match, it's still just awesome seeing Fedor fighting Sylvia, it's just a match I wish to see =D



Some questions, I think I read through all the pages, might have missed some posts, but!

Is this going to be in a cage or in a ring ?

Does it say what Organization this will be fought in ?

Wonder if Fedor beats Tim, maybe Dana will try harder to purchase him...




And about the talks about Fedor being worlds best sambo practicioner.
Didn't both Fedor AND Aleks say that Aleksander was the best of them ?

I think Fedor will win via armbar, but it'd be funny to see him get KOed, mainly because its never happened before, and it would make some people cry

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but it’s too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyone’s ass.

Honestly, I am not a huge fan of Fedor for no particular reason, but how in the world could anyone deny him being #1in the world at HW? I simply can't understand that. Have they just not seen him fight?

I think, on paper, Fedor has this fight in the bag. But funny thing about MMA is the unthinkable happens often. I have a feeling Sylvia is going to win a UD by keeping it on his feet and when it does go to the mat, using his length to keep Fedor from posturing and pounding him. That being said, Fedor could win this fight several different ways, whereas, Sylvia pretty much only has the one way. So, for someone to see Fedor winning is not shocking and very likely. However, seeing Sylvia winning certainly should be the minority opinion. This prediction of mine defies all logic, but like I said it is more of a feeling and those have worked out for me in the past.

this is a big gamble for fedor. if he wins then great... he has proven that he is " better than the ufc " but if he looses then he will have lost ALOT of leverage in terms of negotiating a lucrative deal with the ufc

I really don't see any reason Fedor has to go the UFC. To beat up Nog and Herring again? Tim just left the UFC because of the restrictions and (in his eyes) unfair pay.

Gonzaga
Werdum
Vera
Arlovski

That's a pretty good list of HW contenders Fedor could fight. Obviously over time, the UFC would have to sign more fighters, but this looks like a pretty good starting point to me.

The buzz around town is that AA is on his way out of the UFC. Most of the world's top HW competition is going to be elsewhere, which is why i'd like to see Fedor land a non-exclusive contract with another org.

Everyone keeps saying AA is leaving the UFC, except for AA, his managment, and the UFC.

He might not have his arm out there for Fedor to sub, but after taking some vicious GnP I'm sure he'll forget that his arm is sticking out and by then it'll be too late.
Tim was on the ground more then one time with Nog
