Monsons Height
 
I could be wrong but do you think monsons shortness might help a little? Think about it he's so much smaller he can just walk up to Silvia and already be level enought to grab silvias legs and hit a takedown. Plus it cant be easy to have a smoth exchange with a guy whos's so much smaller than you without crouching down.and lets nopt forget the fact that what monson looses in height he gains in strength prehaps he can musle Slivia down to the ground. Or will his less height not help at all?

It has its advantages and disadvantages.

The downside is that he he will have a hell of time trying to punch Sylvia while Tim can just pick his spots with ease without really having to worry much about getting hit. Not to mention of course that being shorter makes it much easier for Sylvia to deliver knees or high kicks (such as the one that knocked out Tra Telligman who is much taller than Monson).

I think you are right on the money with Monson's height being an advantage.

hmm
 
I could die happy if i never neard Jeff Monsons name in thos fourm again but i guess that just wishful thinking

monson is too short for silvia, he has no advantages in this fight and the reach is really gonna hurt him, 1st round KO Silvia still champ :thumbsdown:

Okay, so how is Sylvia going to defend the take down? Tim's last three fights were all stand up and he won because of his reach. Monson is not going to keep this standing up. I think right after we here "Let's get it on" we are going to see a tatooed blur shoot across the screen and go for a single or double leg take down.

Sylvia has good take down defense. Just watch his fight with Ricco Rodrigues who was probably a better take down guy than Monson at the time.

The only time Sylvia was taken down and submitted was when he was knocked down by a punch from Arlovski (extremely doubtful Monson has the reach or power to do that) or when he himself took Mir down (which he later admitted was a mistake and I doubt he will do that with Monson).


I see Sylvia winning by knockout.

Yeah does anyone have thier reach figures????
It has to be a pretty big difference.

i think Monson hight is an advantage. being that hes small hes more used to fighting the bigger opponent. but finding a parter tims size is going be a problem (money issues). for sylvia hes probaly going to have a hard time finding a guy as muscular and short with a very great ground game.

pluse i belive on the ground the shorter guy has an advantage and Monson will use it. and i think his ground is way better but im sure horn will be working with sylvia.

the reach is no question and advantage for syliva. but hes going to be punching down we will have to see how he adjusts (i dont know might affect his timeing) its a no brainer tho standing sylvia is most likely to win its mma it only takes 1 punch/kick.

sylvia aint no chuck liddel in the sprawl department i see it going to the ground and sylvia taping. i belive Monson already said hes going to take it to the ground. but like i said its mma and it only takes 1 hit so sylvia could knock him one on the takedown.
