F*** dana white, if it was up to him this fight would never happen.

someone once asked me when we talk about PrideFC why we never put
"the" in front of it, i asked him, "do you put the word 'the' in front of God?"

It sure does my friend! Just shows how guilty orgs are of trashing on fighters that aren't signed. Fedor and Sylvia are true fighters, despite what Pride or the UFC says.

I can't wait for this bout! Besides Barnett or Couture, Sylvia would be my next pick for Fedor to fight. Anyone know if it will be in a cage or ring yet?

If this is true then this is HUGE!!!! I would easily pay for a PPV with this as the main event.

I say Fedor grounds and pounds Timmy into a bloody mess.

Pretty easy why this fight is happening and Randy vs. Fedor ain't, Big Tim finished his contract. By now Randy could have done the same thing and be on his way, so boo hoo about Fedor vs. Randy.

I like this match-up a lot better because this is a HUGE test for Fedor, and an even bigger one for Tim. I feel pretty confident Tim is going to win this one, only way I see Fedor managing to win this is by submission.

How is Sylvia doing this? Isn't he still under contract with UFC/Zuffa? Wouldn't this count as trying to do the same thing as Randy?

Am I missing something here? Did UFC/Zuffa actually let Big Timmy fight for the title to finish out his contract? I don't see why they would do that seeing as how they never let anyone else close out a contract with a belt to prevent the champion from using it to hype himself somewhere else.

Tim has been released from his contract with Zuffa.

Sylvia's contract was up after the Big Nog fight at 81. He then signed with Monte Cox and Adrenaline, and I'm guessing Cox put together this fight.

They released him.
They didn't want to pay him what they were when he was going to leave after his last fight anyway. So they just released him.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..
