Everyone assumes Fedor destroys him. But Sylvia would have the same advantages he had against Monson. Fedor is short and couldnt reach Sylvia standing and would have trouble hitting him on the face even on the ground. It would be a decision for sure. Say what you want but Sylvia would beat Fedor standing and he has a good sprawl and defensive ground skills. I think it would go all five rounds and anything can happen in a decision.

Everyone thinks Fedor is a god and Sylvia is just some lucky oaf who happens to just win most of the time. Sylvia can fight and would be a threat to Fedor. I garuntee Fedor would see him that way.

You have a point, Sylvia has all of the advantages he has against Monson, but here's the big differences:

1) Fedor is capable and willing to strike with Monson while waiting for the opportunity to do so.

2) Fedor has a chin on a level that Sylvia has never faced before, ever.

3) Fedor has a level of aggression in the ring that would have crushed Sylvia the way he performed in the second Arlovski fight and against Monson.

4) Fedor as fought a tall, lanky striker like Tim before, and I think that Semmy's technique is cleaner, quicker and crisper than Sylvia, yet Fedor managed to get quickly inside and take Semmy to the ground, where he dominated.

5) Fedor does more damage, more quickly, on the ground than Monson. Granted, Monson is a thicker guy even than Fedor, but Fedor knows how to do damage while taking position, where Monson has to do one, then the other.

6) Fedor has no fear of Sylvia's submissions. Though Monson didn't either, he seemed apprehensive when Sylvia started trying to tap him out when he shouldn't have been, because they were sloppy, poorly executed submission attempts. Fedor would walk right through them and pound Sylvia until it's over.

That seems like enough reasons to me, but here's one more, just to make sure you understand:

7) At the moment, it seems like there is no way to beat Fedor. There doesn't seem to be a hole in his game with the combination of his agressive striking, his pinpoint submissions, his vicious groundnpound and his seemingly unbeatable chin. We all have watched Sylvia, we all know that he half-assed his training in his last to fights, that seems clear. Fedor makes people who do that DEAD!

And that's exactly what would happen to tim sylvia.

Most of the points are true. Except for #4 I dont think his striking is better. And Tim isnt just tall and lengthy He is really tall and he is heavy as shit has to drop weight to make heavy weight. Im not like a huge Sylvia fan or anything I'm just more or less annoyed at how everyone thinks Fedor is the unntouchable when anyone on anynight can be beat. Fedor is the all around best fighter on the planet but he can be beat. Until he fights Sylvia you don't know.
