I think it all depends on whether this fight takes place in a cage or a ring. I think Tim can handle Fedor pretty easy inside a cage, really using his strength and quick combos to beat up Fedor and hold him up against the cage.

This Time ... Break It!

It could really end anywhere. I think it will be either be GNP or a submission (armbar of course). But in the second or third (if it goes that long?) when Sylvia is getting tired and a bit sloppier, I think Fedor could overwhelm him and/or score a nice KO hit.

Fortunately Fedor's already got a jump start on this one, seeing as he spent all that time training to fight a giant in Hong Man last time around.

Tim has the same game plan every fight. He's tall, very akward to fight and he knows it. Tim will try to keep distance using jabs and kicks. Fedor is going to have to close the gap. When he does that Tim will clinch and use knees or just try to neutralize. If he gets taken down he'll be in survival mode.

Tim's plan will be to avoid the ground at all costs and keep Fedor at a distance using his jab. He'll try to scramble once it hits the ground, because he knows an arm bar is coming his way. I don't think Tim will want to clinch at all, because that would just be to Fedor's advantage. I doubt he can Lean N Prey Fedor on a cage at all.

Fedor's plan will be to look out for Tim's jab, keeping distance until he initiates the clinch takedown with a couple punches. He'll take him down and GnP Tim's face to mince or until Tim opens up for a submission.

It's going to be great!

Tim is a one dimensional fighter, that's why people find him boring. With that said, he's got heavy hands, never say never.

With that said, he's not going to jab Fedor to death and needs to make sure this fight doesn't go to the mat. If this fight goes to the mat and Fedor isn't out already, Tim will get armbarred quickly.

It doesnt matter if it is in a ring or cage. Tim will use that reach all day. If Fedor wants in....He has to eat the jab in order to clinch. I dont want to hear excuses if Fedor loses because he fought in a cage. That is what all his fans will be saying.

Sylvia's gameplan: cut Fedor and pray to God the fight is stopped before he gets his arm broken.

Kidding. Seriously, I think Sylvia is going to want to do the same thing he did against Nog. Keep the distance, stuff the takedown, and try to sneak out a UD.

He'd try and do what Fujita did but hope for a KO

Due to his size Sylvia may be more difficult for Fedor to take down, but then again Sylvia has been able to depend on the cage to keep from getting taken down as well. Without the ring to press his weight against Fedor I see Tim having a hard time in this fight. Even worse for him is that he can actually get stuck in a corner. I see this fight being Fedor figuring out Sylvia's reach and then unloading with some shots to setup the TD. Once it goes down Sylvia is going to be in a lot of trouble, fast.
