He is boring. His attitude is crap about being champion because he said given the opportunity to fight Fedor, he wouldn't. A true competitor would not turn down any kind of a challenge whether it was real or not. The only fighters worth mentioning that Sylvia beat are Ricco and AA. If Alexander does come to the UFC and Sylvia wins, then he could earn my respect, until then he doesn't have it. People will toss out the names of Fedor and Mirko and say if Tim beats them then they will respect him, not me. The chances of Tim beating Fedor or Mirko are the same as a man giving birth. These fights will not happen not for a while and if they do, Fedor would probably already lost a fight by then, so it wouldn't really matter. I expect Tim to beat Vera, even though I'm fan of Brandon, Tim has more experience and that will help him win.

I've heard this forever. But I've seen interviews with Tim where he is like "I'd fight Fedor, he's a tiny little shit" But I can never find where he refuses it, other than what the Pride guys said at their conference.


Fine, for the rest of you, Tim Sylvia is a "good fighter" but you have to admit he is a horrible, horrible CHAMPION.

And at this rate, he will never BE a GREAT CHAMPION. People will not talk about Tim Sylvia 5 years after he loses the title as one of the Hall of Famer's.

Kameleon and Beeno, you hit it right on the nose. Sylvia wins but his style is boring and he is in no way a "people's champion" And him calling Fedor out.....I'd just love to see him step-up although we may never see that happen. I'd bet every single point I have on Fedor

If you want more info on our point, go to UFC.com

look at what's posted after the PPV, like 6 different featured stories on St. Pierre winning, none for Tim Sylvia, just brief mentionings in the PPV summary part of those articles. Tim got no montage about beating Monson. Why? Cuz nobody cared, and it wans't exciting. There was no "The Greatest Heavyweight of all time does it again!" not even an article called "He's really good just likes to play it safe, and he played it safe on Saturday"

Once again, I don't care who he beats. Everyone is beatable, it's just the approach you take with each fighter that decides if your going to win or not. Decisions are no way to win a fight in my opinion. I think if a champ has to go all the way and hope for a judges decision then there is a problem. I'm sure Tim could beat Fedor if all he does is stand back the whole time and dodge all of Fedors takedown attempts. Now if he goes in swinging with Fedor there is no way he will win and he knows this. I think the only reason he called out Fedor is because he knows the fight will NEVER happen. UFC and Pride would never agree on the terms. It wouldn't look good for either organizations Heavyweight champ to lose, then he'd just be the #2 champ.

If Alexander Emelienenko comes over from Pride and Tim beats him down, is he now one of the best in the world? I know that if Vera is his next opponent then most of you will say that Vera sucks and it doesn't count if Tim beats him up.

On a side note if you could answer this question: If you are one of the 20 best in the world at your sport, are you "One of the best in the world"?


Alright, if Tim beat Aleksander E. I would give him respect.
but he won't so lets cut the bullshit.
he has to do these things first.
1. stop talking
2. stop wearing his belt everywhere
3. beat vera, aleks, and whoever else while getting pissed teested at every fight to make up for his loser ass using roids.

I will call him an official, GREAT fighter if he could beat Fedor, instead of talking about wanting to fight him and then never actually doing it.
So in order for Tim to be considered a great fighter he has to beat the best fighter of all-time? Give me a break, Tims could be considered a great fighter now. I guarantee if he looked cooler he;d be considered better. I know he's had 2 extremly boring fights in a row and I fault him for that but he deserves more respect than he gets.
