Good news! I'm not a fan of Tim Sylvia but I don't hate or even dislike him. I think that he is a solid fighter and hopefully having an opponent like Fedor Emelianenko will inspire him to take things to another level in their upcoming fight.
It'll be good to see Fedor fight again but I think the real benefactor will be Sylvia. He's going to fight one of the greats of HW and even in a loss he could gain a lot of experience from fighting someone of Fedor's level of skill and experience.
