I want Sylvia to win but I really don't believe he will. However, I do hopes that he trains like a mad man for this fight (if it does happen) and fights like the way he used to, aggressive and looking to knockout his opponent. I want to see the bad ass Tim Sylvia who wanted to continue fighting even after a broken arm.

I have nothing against Fedor (except the fact he beat my boy Cro Cop) but I'll be rooting for Big timmy. He's like the little orphan boy that nobody wants. He's actually a nice guy, and, up until recently, he was a thoroughly entertaining fighter.

A string of boring Wins! and the fact that he looks like the retard from the Goonies doesn't make him a bad guy or fighter. I've got him on sheer underdog/sympathy power right now.

I really like Tim Sylvia but I definitely like Fedor a lot more.

I understand Tim Sylvia is really not a very appealing fighter but I don't think that's why I should be rooting for him. :/

I'll be rooting for Fedor and expect him to win this one. I see it stylistically going in his favor. I respect Sylvia's game, he's good at what he does, but Fedor is better at pretty much every aspect of MMA than him, except having a long heavy jab. I can see Sylvia winning and will give him nothing but respect win or lose, because it takes balls just to get in the cage/ring especially with the #1 HW in the sport. I think he'll shit himself (again) when he's looking at Fedor across the cage/ring. Joking ofcourse.

Fedor via armbar round 2.

HAHA, I'm not saying that I'm rooting for Timmy because he's not appealing. If it came across that way...My bad.

I was saying that I'm rooting for him because he's the underdog and always gets counted out. I also remember his old whoop ass days and want him to come back to form.

Oh I'm with you on that one. I remember Tim's KO Days very well.

I'm not talking about legends like "Big Foot", I'm talking about heroes people can look up to because they defied our expectations and set new standards for what our lives can be.

People naturally hate success, but I don't see how anyone can desire Fedor's legacy to end when he's nothing but class, skill and mystery.

On that note, I have nothing against Tim Sylvia. If anyone remembers, I started a Tim Sylvia love and appreciation thread about six months ago, only to receive ample negative rep and "poopy pants" comments, alongside some agreed support.
What I like about Fedor is no one ever did or ever will come as close to doing what he has done already. I doubt there will ever be as great a heavyweight as him ever again.
