Dear Tim.............
 
Dear Tim Sliva,


I watched your fight last night. Congrats on the win your victory did not shock me. However what you did on the ground blew me away. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN HIDING THIS GROUND GAME??? You beat a BBJ expert on the ground easily.

I was watching this fight and trying to figure out just why everyone dislikes this guy. He sure doesnt have the physical impressiveness that most others do in the sport. But the HW divison is filled with guys who dont look like bodybuilders.

So that cant be it. He's not the best looking cat out there, but that isnt it either. Then about half way through the fight it hit me. It was during a corus of boo's.

Tim sir you fight "not to loose". THAT is the difference. There is no explosiveness. There is no excitment in your game. You dont "impose" your game plan on anyone, you simply go into a defensive shell and stay there. Against some of the most exciting fighters in the world you manage to make a rather boring encounter.

Fighting to "win" is what GSP did last night, its what Brandon Vera did. Sadly its what Tim seems incapable of doing. Tim, buddy, GO for a submission, throw more kicks, move around the ring more.

Your a fighter who sits there and rely's on a stupidly long reach. That seems to be it. This is not what makes champions.


Our hope lies with Vera now. This is a very exciting fighter who fights to win. Tim please change this, that last couple fights of yours I have seen you and your otherwise exciting opponent being booed without mercy.

youd figure he would been throwin more headkicks near the end of the round where if he was taken down he wouldnt have been able to be submitted in the given time

i dunnio why he wasnt throwin the left kick

Tim sylvia's fights are always boring. Triangle chokes are not the hardest thing to pull off with only a few reps. Tim would not be the same fighter if he didn't have a 10 inch reach over everyone.

maybe because he's a ***** that can only talk shit.

It's because he sucks. He loves that belt so much that he's scared to fight for it. He knows that when he loses, his MMA career in the UFC is pretty much done and that he will have to get a job at Mcdonalds or something.

Because he is the Champion. He doesn't have to beat anybody, they have to beat him.

then he should stop cryin on why he isnt a Main Event fighter...

mabe when he finished a fight in good fashion as the champ.. they will throw him down as the Main Event..

He is not a true champion. Take Liddell for example the guy finishes fights and fights to win. Sylvia just doesnt give them the chance to do anything and just dances around throwing jabs. He is never going to finish a fight like that, therefore why spoil your card giving him a main event. Like what would you rather see in a main event Sylvias boring ass fights or liddell pushing the pace and knocking someone out. Vera is gonna kick his ass around the ring and hopefully ground and pound him out.
