Unhappy

I wish randy but it aint gonna happen imo. Tim is huge and is heavyweightchamp (ufc) like it or not. And he became champ by destroying Ricco Rodriguez who owned randy when Randy was in his prime.

Too bad i spent all my points on Babalu i kinda forgot about Big Timmy,

I like the stakes for each fighter, the points involved are virtually even and its good to see people on Tims side for a change, he is the Heavyweight Champion and is for a reason \m/

Tim Sylvia will Knock Out Randy Couture.

Lets see ricco beat randy so bad he broke his eye socket? and you say he didnt own him, man I would not have liked to have been Randy in that fight. Maybe chuck didnt own randy either maybe he just knocked him out. What a Dumb Fu&*&k

I cannot believe Couture has more bets placed on him than Sylvia.

Are people being delusional because they just hate Tim?

Between people's hate for Tim and their love for Randy, this bout has opinions and bets all screwed up.

randy by 3rd or 4th round kncokout y gnp at the latest.
I say randy dominates this whole fight.


im putting 10 g's on randy
wow! as much as i completely loath sylvia, i still think hes gonna win by decision. randy will try all night to get the take down and he most likely wont get it. and all tims gonna do is avoid it and throw his sloppy punches.

this is why im not too excited about the fight.

There is one HUGE difference between fighters like Couture and Silvia. Couture is a much smarter fighter.

Sylvia and Liddel are just what I would call "good fighters". They are not as intelligent as fighters such as Couture, BJ Penn and Hughes.

All three are very intelligent fighters and rely more on thinking through the fight rather than "looking for a knock out" as Liddel and Sylvia do.

SO, if anyone is going to be able to take out Sylvia, it is going to be a thinking fighter. Coming at Sylvia swinging as Andre does, you are not going to win.

I would agree that the odds are more in Sylvia's favor, but many seem to be factoring out the intelligent fighting factor.

Regarding Hughes, it is easy for people to dismiss him as a "dumb farm boy", but if you watch his fights, he has a very intelligent plan he executes every time he gets into the ring. THAT was why he was on top so long.

Regarding Cro cop, I believe people are OVER estimating his skills. He is essentially another Sylvia or Liddell. Big guy, hits hard, has a solid plan of attack and has great kicks. YET, he is not really a smart fighter, from what I have seen. He just has "big guns" and knows how to use them. That, I think, he is just going to add to the mix and I would not be surprised if Andre takes out Cro Cop. I would not be surprised at all.

Sylvia is FAR from being a garbage fighter. For one do you understand the fact he has 16 wins by KO? I don't care if he is boring or not, his left hand can put ANYONE to sleep, period.

Also his ground skills against Monson show that he is a well rounded fighter. Probally not the most well rounded, but is clearly moving up.

I can't stand these people that think just because some of Sylvia's fights were boring as hell it means he is a horrible fighter. He isn't, and hes getting better. I'm not saying hes unstoppable, or will keep the belt longer than another fight or two, but at the end of the day, he is still a very good fighter.

Edit: And to "arwoodco"'s previous post above mine...

I agree 100%. Cotoure is a very smart fighter, and I'm not even trying to say Cotoure won't win. I'm just saying people who think Tim Sylvia are horrible are very very mistaken.
