yep, i've been saying that for a while. vera is pretty tall. obviously not as tall as tim, but the height advantage is a little less severe in this matchup. its gonna come down to a matter of skill and agressiveness.

I don't think I could take Big Tim as the champ again, lets hope Vera puts an end to him Saturday night.
Tim will fight angry so Vera may have his hands full-- WAR VERA!!

I thought the exact same thing. When I saw them do the staredown..I was like hey the size does not look like its that much. I have even more confidence in Vera now. I really thunk he is going to exploit Big Tim's standup for what it is.(Jab Jab...Jab Jab...boring. Vera is going to chop that tree down come tomorrow nite. Cant wait!! WAR VERA!!

I'm rooting for Big Tim, I like Brandon Vera too, but for some odd reason I happen to be a fan of Tim Sylvia's.

I think we will see the old agressive Tim Sylvia who will bring Brandon Vera back down to earth.

6'8 and 6'2 when they were staring down it seemed only a 2 inch gap

i agree with you to an extent. im certain sylvia will be more aggressive than he has been. however, i think he tends to move to slow and his striking is telegraphed and sloppy. i think if he chooses to strike, then vera is gonna take the win. I think a ground attack would be a more likely winning scenario for Tim. unfortunately for tim, i seriously doubt that he'd attempt to take vera down as anything other than a last resort.
