When it comes to fighting you do whatcha need to do to win (with in the rules of course). Tim just gets the job done. I don't really like him as a person because he has this Cro-Magnon feel to him. He doesn't make intelligent statements but that's not what it takes to fight. He the best in the UFC right now. He will probably go down..it's just going to take some time..like most fighters.

I couldn't care less "who" he beats. Thats not how he is going to earn my respect. It's how he fights. He is a champion and should act like it. Don't just stand back and hope for the best. Fight, thats all he has to do to make me happy. All he does is stand back, wait for his opponent to aproach and then he swings. He is just boring. Matt Hughes, Chuck, and Rich were never afraid to go out swinging and go to the ground, but Tim always acts like he is. Thats just my opinion.

Totally, it's not who you fight, but how you fight them. That's what gets you fans. I hate seeing a guy with that much of a size, weight, and reach advantage just stand there like a lumpy turd in the middle of the ring. I have also never heard Big John have to tell two guys to fight when they are both standing.

I think he is a very good fighter and all the haters out there need to get a life.

So you are saying that if Tim beat Fedor with his "boring" style you still wouldn't think he was a great fighter or you just don't respect his "winning" style?

Exactly! People don't want to see Tim Sylvia playing it safe! They want to see the Tim Sylvia who knocks guys out! They want to see the Tim Sylvia who got his arm broken by Frank Mir and still wanted to fight no matter what Herb Dean or that redheaded doctor said!

In short, People want to see the Warrior Tim Syliva, not some pansy who is afraid to lose his title!

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

Got a point there, but that does not always work out.

When is the last time you saw Tank Abbott fight? Many years ago no doubt because he loses. He is really exciting though right? I am getting the feeling that Tim could beat everyone in the world with his conservative style and I still could not get you morons to agree that he is a great fighter?
