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.

Hickory what?!
Smoked what?!

I hope Tim wins, but I see Fedor taking him down and submitting him. At least people cannot complain about Fedor not fighting top competition anymore. You might hate Tim, but the dude is a top fighter.

I don't think so. Sylvia has a good sprawl, but that does you no good against Fedor. Tim was able to avoid Nogueria's TDs because he shoots in for doubles and singles. Fedor is so quick with his upperbody take downs that it will give anyone trouble.

I don't think this is a good matchup for Tim to be honest. Fedor's disposed of fighters with a substancial reach and size advantage on him. Tim is nothing he hasn't beaten before.

It won't be a pretty fight, it's going to be a grueling ground battle that won't stay on the feet for very long.. that's what I foresee anyway.

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!
I agree with your multiple views of the fight.

Tim's good at sprawling, but his defense against leg trips is abysmal. Nogueira, Vera, and Couture were all able to trip him to the ground. Fedor's a better takedown artist than Vera and Nogueira, and he doesn't shoot for double-legs, so I figure he'll be fine getting Tim on the mat.

Oh, and Fedor is going to destroy Tim. Anything is possible in this game. Someone like Tim must not be taken too lightly, but my $$ is on Fedor.

Apparently so is his SubD, looking at this thread.

This is amazing, I really didn't expect it. Should be an amazing fight. I've got Fedor by decision, and he'll be no.1 again. But even if Tim wins I will be happy cos he is mad underrated.

Fedors gonna throw bombs, rush in and take Sylvia down. Rinse and repeat for three rounds.
Fedor will take damage though, it'll be a tough fight

TIM SYLVIA IN A BORING FIGHT? WHAT!?!?

This fight should be decent-good and will solidify Fedor as being number 1. I'm sure there will still be a lot of people that will just say Sylvia sux, but he is a top 5 HW.

randy beats sylvia. randy retires in attempt to fight fedor. fedor takes fight with sylvia. if I were randy I'd be pissed as a motherf***er.

Talking about throwin someone in the deep end.
Timmys gonna get chewed up and spit out. No way in hell he's gonna hang with Fedor.
It's Randy's own fault.
