Tim Sylvia is scared of Overeem

Quote:
Fanhouse.com is reporting that Tim Sylvia has verbally agreed to fight for DREAM at the Dynamite!! 2009 event on New Year's Eve. Sylvia has been proposed fights against Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem and Hong Man Choi. Sylvia's manager, Monte Cox, feels that Choi would be the best fight for Sylvia, stating, "We're still trying to make a comeback, so I think he and Choi be the best match-up."

Good call on Tims part, i dont look down on him at all for this. Overreem has looked pretty good lately, that is not a good fight to take when you are just starting a comeback. Choi isnt the greatest in the world, but this should be a fun match up because neither of these guys will take it to the ground.

It just occured to me that if Tim is planning on hanging around in dream he can squirt himself in as much roids as he likes - I predict improvement in his performance.

It would have been a career ending move to take a fight against Overeem right now.

Sylvia fought Fedor, Nogueira, Arlovski x3, and Ricco in his prime.

And he's scared of Overeem? Right... It doesn't matter that he'd lose but he ain't scared.

I highly doubt he is scared. He just wants easier opponents to get back to winning form. HMC will be a tough challenge for him being the tall striker but obviously easier then Overeem.
