Last Time Sylvia fought a Submission Specialist

We all know what happen to Tim Sylvia back at Payback. Knowing full well that Frank Mir was a submission specialist, Tim Sylvia shot and took Frank Mir to the ground! Then the first chance Mir got he slapped an armbar on Sylvia. Just the fact that Sylvia took Mir to the ground showed he had no respect for this mans skills and got a broken arm for his troubles. Will Sylvia underestimate Monson's submission skills like he did with Mir?

Arlovski has some submissions dude. And Sylvia beat him twice. Sylvia is much better against submission fights than at UFC 48 and 51 where you are coming from.

But Arlovski is more of a stand up and rarely does submissions.

I think Sylvia will beat Monson though simply because of reach and hes a better striker.

He may. I dont think isi takedown defence is a solid as its made out to be.

Sylvia later admitted that it was a mistake on his part by not respecting Mir's ground game.
