good thing there's a cage or else Tim will just be running just to aviod contact...how embarassing was it for him to be told in 2 consecucutive fights by the refs that "this is a fight...so fight!"

I want to see it happen as much as anyone else, that would be Vera kicking Sylvias ass all over the octagon, but I don't think it's going to happen.

I said it once and I'll say it again, Sylvia has a complete, unfair advantage over most of the heavyweights in the UFC, due to his height and reach advantage. Tricky thing is, he's too much of a soft, conceited, "do enough to win" ogre and doesn't use those advantages in order to finish fights, so it would seem recently.

He limited himself against Monson, he'll do the same with Vera. Face it guys, Vera is not going to take him down, if they do get in the clinch Sylvia will escape it, Vera will do everything he can to make the fight exciting while Sylvia stands there with his soft jabs, and think "Well if I do this for about 23 more minutes I can edge out a decision".

Sylvia by decision.

I may be mistaken, but i thought Vera was around 225 or so ... I think that's a major problem given Tim's size .. Brandon would be a gamer but would have problems overcoming that

I voted Sylvia by decison as well ... I agree that Tim's size is something most heavyweights have been unable to deal with .. even someone as talented as Arlovski, you could see the difficulties he faced with the reach and the fact that Tim can just keep everyone off of him with his jab. Very difficult to fight someone who has a height / reach / weight advantage that he brings
