I think that Monson will pull this one out, Monson's height disadvantage can easily be turned into an advantage, being the smaller man will mean that it will be harder for Sylvia to get to him.

Keep in mind that I am new to MMA, so I am merely assuming this.

I find this a tough call. The height/reach advantage is huge, but then again, Monson is probably quite used to it - he must always be the shorter guy. And Sylvia does not strike me as unstoppable. But man, it's not hard to imagine a head kick from Sylvia ending this.

But I'll go with Monson submitting Sylvia. I don't think it'll go past the 2nd round.

I guess thats all it takes, 1 good shot in the right place and its over, which goes to prove it could be anyones fight, really. Except Monson is really aggressive in his fights and I can bet just about anything he'll rush right in on Silvia and take him down (or try to)

I dont think Silvia will be prepared for an immediate takedown,. probably figures on a standup for awhile. Except Monson knows the reach advantage is too great, so the takedown has to happen, the clinch at the bvery least. And he hits JUSt as hard, or damn close.

Monson 1st round GNP 2nd for sure
sounds good to me

From experience

Two of my sparring partners are 6'6" and 6'7" respectively. I am 5'10" 250lbs.
All that reach can be a complete disadvantage if you know how to get inside on someone. If the tall guy is good with elbows and knees then he can hassle you a bit, but if you can slip a punch and get inside the reach and throw punches with your legs you can destroy a taller opponent.
Last time we sparred my 6'7" friend tried to throw a quick left jab followed by a quick spinning back fist. Most people back up to aviod the jab and get caught by his backfist HARD, well I slipped the jab and I saw his hips start to turn for the backfist and stepped inside and caught him in the face as he came around. Broke his nose.

It's all about working with what you've got.

I personally don't think that Sylvia is talented enough or in good enough physical condition to be champ of anything.

The UFC HW division seems weak to me. I wish they'd bring in some new people.

I like this matchup. Expect Monson to push the pace and not let Tim sit back and try not to lose like he did in AA/Sylvia III. Expect Tim to try to hold off Monson with stiff jabs. I'm interested to see if Tim's hand speed has improved. When Monson shoots look for Tim to hit him with a knee in order to slow Monson down.

The way I see it, although Monson is the shorter and lighter guy, I believe he would still be the physically stronger man.

Tim Sylvia's weight seems to be from the combination of muscle and fat and his tall height.
Monson on the other hand...well....lets face it....he's a hairless Gorilla.

I know Sylvia has some pretty good wrestling skills, but when it goes to the ground, its all Monson's game.
Monson, being a bit shorter, will be able to move faster. Not only that, he will out power and out wrestle Sylvia because Monson is just a sick mofo like that.
Going to the ground will benefit Monson since Sylvia's limbs are so long and give him a chance for a submission.

This fight could go any way, it's a clash of styles once again.
Sylvia can only win through a stand up fight, Monson can only win through the ground game.

Im favoring Monson, but I have my doubts.
After all, Tim defeated AA twice.
