I always thought that Ivan Salaverry exciting. Forest Griffin could easily be fighting Chuck instead of Tito and we would all be talking about an upcoming slugfest. Tim should have layed AA out in their 3rd fight instead of playing it safe. Now the only way for him to get respect is going to be by beating up one of the Pride HW's that everybody thinks is so great.

Yeah Salavary got my attention with his fight against Tony Fryklund. I was very impressed with that back crank, but after that I heard no more about him.

Plus, Sylvia vs Cabbage ruled.
Exactly. Tim isn't a technically sound fighter, but he throws his punches with bad intentions. The thing that I respect about him is the fact that he tries HARD to improve. See his fight with Tra Telligman. You would have never expected the dude to throw a high head kick because apparently that isn't Tim Sylvia, but he's shown tons of improvement, even since that fight. His boxing is way sharper than when he handed Cabbage his ass, he has a much more traditional boxing style, but still that awkward movement that has to throw you off.

Sylvia gets my vote for most underrated, especially on here. That's for damn sure.

tim's a very technically sound fighter, especially his striking....watch the fights against ricco and, tra, and mgee...he alwaya keeps his chin tucked in, shoulders up, hands always up and hes prolly the best HW striker in the UFC... getin tired of everyone knockin on him on this site, ppl saying "ow well he crapped his pants, hes boring to watch"... who gives a shit he still ****s ppl up (he KOd Ricco when ricco wus in the top 5 HW in the world after beatin Couture, and he KO'd AA and beat him again) only boring fight ive seen him in wus the rubber match between him and arlovski, cus he took arlovskis leg out with some kicks and AA couldnt do muchafter that....idk wut fights ppl are watchin but he pretty much knock everyone out idk think thats very boring....seems like pridenutthuggers rule the majority of this site and its now the cool thing to thinkk Sylvia sucks...any none biased true MMA fan knows his a tough fighter and hes knocked out a lot of toughguys...give him some ****in respect, def. the most underrated fighter in all of MMA

Depends on the damage Cro Cop does with his leg and body kicks to get Sylvia to drop his hands then he'll start going for the head to try and finish him. Tim, on the other hand, has to look to step inside those body kicks to counter with those long telephone poll rights and lefts as Cro Cop's chin is wide open when he kicks. Whoever works either of these two stratedgies to perfection, gets the ko.

I think Mike Swick is the most underated. I think it's coz of who he would have to fight to win the belt. His fight against David L. wasn't great but he won it.

It's possible we may see Swick v. Dewees for the belt, hear me out. We have seen Silva perform in the octagon like he runs the Matrix and that is what we will see against the TUF winner. We all know Dewees can bleed and evidently his body holds about 6 gallons of blood so WHEN Silva opens the first of many cuts there is a chance one might spray Silva in the eyes allowing Dewees to pull off the miracle.

It will probably be Swick v. Silva though.

Sean Sherk is another guy who who never gets mentioned. He was practically ignored until he won the LW Title and even now people still underate his abilities.
