He seems to get a lot of crap on these boards. Not because of his lack of skill, but more because people can’t let go of the fact that he shit his pants. I mean, it was funny the first couple times someone made a joke about it, but after seeing pages and pages of anti-Sylvia remarks, it just gets old.
To say Sylvia isn’t worth a damn, and that he wouldn’t belong in the UFC because of his size advantage, is BULLSHIT. The guy has worked very hard on sharpening his boxing, you know he works the ground game with Miletech FS, although he prefers stand up. My point being, he’s worked damn hard to get where he is. He works incredibly hard to get into the shape he’s in now, and he’s dedicated 100% to this sport. I really think he’s going to be a good champion, should he beat Monson and continue to defend his title.
I think in a couple of years, Sylvia will be considered the best heavyweight champion in the UFC.
