Yea, Im with you. I can see why people give him shit. But he is gonna keep winning and people will keep eating crow. They will say he got lucky or he is a big oaf or he shit his pants or whatever. But he is a good fighter and he will keep beating everyone until he gets tested by a guy like crocop. I hope he beats a few more quality opponets so people will finally shut up about it.

I guess everyone expects to much of him now. He did KO'D some HW's. Don't know. He is expected to KO all his competition. But we all know he is tryna prove he is a well rounded fighter.

You know, I used to like him, but his last few fights have sucked. It's not all about winning fights IMO, but also about entertaining,

My favortite fighter, evan tanner, did/does not win all of his fights, and has been beaten a bunch of times, but I have never seen him stand their and circle a guy for five rounds and do just just enough to eke out a decision victory.

Tell you what, if tim has a few exciting fights, I'll shit my own pants just to show how much I like the guy.

He's expected to KO his opponents because he garantees it! I remember him saying after Bitter Rivals that he was going to make the Heavyweight division in the UFC exciting even if he has to bash into peoples faces or some sh!t like that! He talks alot of sh*t and he is not living up to it! That's why people are getting pi$$ed off at him!

Also, Tim flipping the fans off and calling them drunken idiots who don't understand fights isn't going to earn him respect!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Isn't that what 90% of this forum says all of the time?

If he actually fought (aggressively) and provided some action instead of circling and throwing that cheesy jab I might respect him a bit. If CroCop does actually come to the UFC Tim is going to shit his pants (again).

Tim will be eating some crow after Cro Cop beats his face in with his foot.

But serousily, Tim just doesn't seem to be hungry anymore. He should of finished Monsoon off. Monsoon was dead tired! He could of KO'ed him easily, but chose to circle around him and throw a few lazy jabs at him in the last round. He just did enough to get a decision victory, instead of being a real champ and going after it to get a decisive win. But he's winning regardless, so gotta give him some bit of respect.

Why wouldnt he sit back and throw that jab, its basically fighting 101 for anyone with a huge reach advantage. Especially since at that point in the fight he knew monson had no energy left to try for the take down. Not saying what he did was neccesarily the "real" champ thing to do, but it was the smart thing to do.
