Really Fedor>ALL you think it's going to be Schilt vs Fedor. I mean if it is than we all might as well not watch because that fight was boring as hell.

It could go like the Schilt/Fedor fight or it could be a quick sub. Timmy was bad on the ground vs Nog, Fedor might look to repeat this and give him a taste of what a world-class armbar feels like.

I'm going with Fedor via round 2 armbar. I think he takes Sylvia down at will in this fight. He won't want to recieve many of Sylvia's jabs, just like he didn't want to with HMC.

Biggest HW match up of this year!

SO who has Fedor officialy signed with?

"When I hear athletes call themselves warriors, it does bother me a little bit. When I think of a warrior, I think of the Marines I've led in combat, those Marines that sacrificed so much...no showers, little food, no contact with their family, all for their love for their brother Marine and for their love for their country. That's a warrior, willing to lay his life on the line. I've had Marines that have laid their lives on the line for the man next to him, and for their family and country. That's a warrior. The guy who goes into some athletic contest who has no war experience, in my eyes, really has no right to call himself that. That's a coveted thing to call someone, and that's what I call my Marines. Those are warriors." - Brian Stann

Poor Randy, he left the UFC to get a fight with Fedor but instead he got stuck in a legal battle. Tim leaves the UFC and is signed in a fight with Fedor the next week! I guess it would have been allot easier for Randy to get those two fights done with and then leave the UFC. Both of Randy's fight would probably have been done by now, or close.

Right kick, Hospital.
Left kick, Cemetery.

Thanks lol. Honestly, even if Fedor loses it won't change my thoughts on him as the greatest of all time.

Yeah, I see it that way as well. He's not going to dick around on the feet, he'll strike to get in range for the takedown. Tim Sylvia's submission defense is definitely lackluster, but he is pretty good at scrambling for his size. I just think Fedor's going to be able to control him from inside the guard, deal some damage to the body, then look for a submission of sorts.

The fight will repeatedly stood-up, only for Fedor to resume taking Tim down, and wearing him out for however many rounds it is for.

if Fedor can sub somone like Choi, who is 2x as big and strong as Sylvia, he'll sub Timmy too...

could Sylvia avoid Fedor's TD's?

Sylvia's TDD is very underrated. I mean the only fight he got takendown a lot in was against Randy and he was in no condition to fight. The guy looked terrible that night and was much slower than usual.

Easily going to be the best heavyweight fight of the year whatever the outcome.

lets just hope Fedor trains really hard for this fight and gets rid of those managers he has holding his career back
