ATTN: Tim Sylvia Haters!

Who does the UFC Heavyweight Champion, Tim Sylvia, need to beat in order for all of you haters to give him his props? It is obvious that Tim's KO of AA in part II and then the snorefest decision in part III mean nothing to you and neither does Tim's latest victory when he out BJJ'd a brown belt in BJJ, virtually putting on an MMA clinic with controlled striking, sound sprawling, and excellent wrestling. 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"?

I like Nascar and if you are one of the 20 best that just puts you in the top 50%, thats not that good. I also like Prof. darts but there are only 18 professionals so there is no way to answer the question.

Sorry I couldn't be more help.

I dont like tim at all, but i think its wrong to say
that he suck and that he hasnt faught
anyone good.
he has defeated Ricco Rodriguez,Jason Lambert,Andrei Arlovski, and now Jeff Monson.
The guy is OK, he is not the greatest HW in the world
but you cant say he suck.

That pretty much sums it up for me.
He needs an opponent who will make him fight
like a champ.

Like people have said before, his fights are just boring, except TS vs. AA pt II, but other than that I just hate to watch him fight.

It's pretty safe to say that me, personally, will give Tim Sylvia when he beats any one of the 5 HW's ranked higher than him.

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.
