I used to think that Jerome Lebanner was a joke, but after watching him fight in K1 you have to understand, this guy is a badass. He fears no one. His second MMA fight was against Bob Sapp, and he drew.
Granted, Lebanner has 1 career loss. It was his first fight and he didn't know what to expect. It hasn't happened since.
He's fought Alan Karaev, one of the greatest sumo wrestlers in the world. Alan weighs roughly 385 pounds and stands about 6'6. Jerome stopped Karaev at 1:14 in round 1.
He's fought Yoshihiro Akiyama, who is one badass man. He stopped Yoshihiro in 2:24 of round 1. This is Yoshihiro's only loss.
He's fought Jimmy "The Titan" Ambriz, who is a strong mofo. Ambriz has stepped in with some tough guys. Jerome stopped "The Titan" faster than Barnett or Ricco Rodriguez did in their fights with him.
I don't know if Lebanner could take Sylvia. If he beats Schilt I think that he would have a very good shot at Tim. And when Lebanner talks down about Sylvia's standup, he knows what he's talking about, because he's a great K1 fighter.
