Tim Sylvia v. Jason Riley at Adrenaline MMA

Here is the link to MMAJunkie, where the fight is embedded:


I'm going to talk about the fight a little bit below, so please don't scroll down if you don't want it to be spoiled.

Timmy did a good job this fight in utilizing his reach advantage once again. The one item that is troublesome was that he allowed Jason Riley to tie up with him and close the distance several times. Timmy's best bet to win was the formula he had while holding the belt prior to the Couture fight: Stand outside and jab. he's lost his last few fights due to attempting to be aggressive. Timmy, you can;t do that and win against Top opponents. Congrats on your win, though.

I think when facing a much weaker opponent, you have to be aggressive and look good finishing them, if you play it safe in that situation, no org will want to pick you up.

Also Tim does need to go beyond, jab jab jab, if he wants to beat any of the better hw's. It's a pity he cant learn how to be quick on his feet.
