I think it will be 18 month's before Tim gets another title shot. The UFC will make him work from the bottom sort of like GSP did to back at Matt Hughes. Tim needs a lot of work and not just his fighting skills either. He needs to clean himself up publicly. This man image is so tattered that people will get seriously pissed if he recieves a shot. So I don't think will see Tim fighting Cro Cop or Randy anytime soon.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

and if you think that is a bad thing you don't understand ppv and publicity. there is more Tim talk on this board than any other fighter right now.

Uh, how do you come down to that conclusion about his chin?

I think its fair to say that his chin is fine considering that he was a STRIKER before he was in MMA...

If he had a glass jaw, not only would his K-1 career been crappy... it would have been a walk in the park for Mark Hunt.

just ask fellow canadian Michael McDonald who knocked him out...that said I shouldn't say he has a bad chin, I was wrong to say that, I should have said he can be knocked out like anyone and Tim can punch. I would really like to see that fight I don't think Tim would get crushed like eveyrone says.

Absolutely... unlike what most people think, CC is not a God... no mma fighter is.

If they get hit by a 2x4, they will get KTFO.

Tim can punch, sure... but those arent going to be of the same calibre as McDonald... or any *pure* striker for that matter...
And that is what CC is accustomed to...
But Tim is NOT accustomed to anything that CC can serve up... Tim hasnt run into ANYONE the likes of CC.

Im going to differ with your opinion there... IMHO, tim would get crushed.
