Vera should just chop Big Tim down with legkicks, because Tim's a guy who knows how to use his reach, and when angry, Tim's very dangerous. This will be a tough test for Vera, because Tim is definitely a really good fighter who uses his size really well. Good on the ground and good standing. Vera better pray that tentative Tim shows up.

Not much of a size difference. I'm picking Vera because of his footwork. They can both strike but Tim is very stationary while Brandon has the ability to come in, throw a punch/combo or whatever it be, and get out lightning quick for a HW

Tim doesn't have his belt, and if Tim doesn't have his belt that means the old Tim Sylvia will return, a guy that knocks people the **** out. I can honestly see Sylvia knocking out Vera if Tim fights with pride like he used to.

In my opinion, size does somewhat matter but not all that much, however I think they are fairly close in skill sets so size and strength may be a determining factor since this should be a pretty close fight.

Vera is a good striker so he has a chance, for all Tim's size he hasn't displayed the greatest chin in the world, Arlovski dropped him twice in their first two fights and Randy put him down ten seconds into their match.

Vera landing a big shot and KOing Tim is really the only way I can see him winning this fight outside of that Tim's size and experince will be too much.

Honestly, I think Tim might be too big for Vera. Hopefully Vera is training with bigger guys and has a good game plan coming into this fight, otherwise he's going to lose. Sylvia has a good ground game, and is excellent at using his size to his advantage. I can see Vera doing damage from side mount or mount, but I don't know if he'll be able to pass Tim's guard or even hold him down.




What a stud

Funny, since Tim looked his best against Telligman at UFC 54.

He may not have the greatest chin but Tims recovery time is AMAZING. See AA/Sylvia II, and for that matter AA/Sylvia I, yeah AA won but Sylvia recovered instantly from that cannon.
