I agree. Fifteen of Fedor's 28 wins have been submissions, and the last four fights all ended with submissions. Sylvia's shown us he's very susceptible to submissions by his own admissions and fights. All of Sylvia's losses have been by submissions, with the exception of Randy. We remember Mir, and then there was Arlovski's Achilles' lock. Most recently was Nogeuira's Guillotine.

I'm taking Fedor. I don't see any area in Sylvia's game that is as good or even close to Fedor. The only thing I can think of that would give Fedor problems is Sylvia's size but Fedor proved he could handle that after beating that 'giant' in his last fight. This is an easy pick for me.

Kamikaze is now 5-0. Watch his most recent fight here.

As agent, not as promoter, though. Now, he's both.

Good points but it was a knee bar. Honest mistake.

Anyone else think maybe Dana sent Tim on a hunting expedition, seriously I have a feeling Dana knew this fight would happen when he realeased Tim, if Tim wins he takes all the luster out of Fedor/Cotour as well as giving Dana bragging rights, if Fedor loses so what White can say he let Tim go because he couldnt hang any more, the UFC cant lose on this one because Tim is not popular enough to cause the damage Randy/Fedor would.

strange how many of you think Tim can take this one,

he couldn't beat Nog how can he beat Fedor, who is better than Nog at virtually every aspect of the game?

Tim is a great fighter but Fedor is gonna submitt him pretty easily

i respect eneryones opinion but how can Legend think tim is gonna whoop Fedor's ass...i mean i know poeple are fans of particular fighters but in this situation it really is hard for me to believe that people who really have knowledge and fight could ever really see anything other than Fedor kickin timmy's ass. Tim Sylvia is a big guy with shitty stand-up and thats about it....not cuz i like Fedor but because in my head are two things called eyeballs and they have seen enough of tims game to know fedor will beat him silly and i just wonder why others are so convinced that tim's skill set is enough to win. Im not bein a asshole, im just sayin i dont understand that...

I don't understand why White would let Sylvia go so easily if he gets beat by Fedor. Sylvia is still a bigger draw then most, and with Couture gone and AA potentially leaving, the HW division talent pool would be shallow.
