If YOU Were Tim Sylvia...
This isn't a thread bashing Tim Sylvia! I just want to get your opinion on this manner!
I just saw an interview of Tim and he was asked if it was more important to keep the title then making the fight exciting! His reply was "In this juncture in my career, Yes it is more important!"
If you were in Tim Sylvia's shoes, wouldn't you want to make a fight more exciting at the risk of losing your title? I mean, the UFC heavyweight division is sort of getting a bad rep! I think an exciting fight from thier champion would help improve its image! Then again, Sylvia could lose the title! Not only would this mean he is no longer number 1 in the UFC but is at risk of taking a huge paycut as well! Also, having that championship would gaureentee a long successful career in the UFC!
So the question is, what would you do if you were Tim Sylvia?
You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
