I think Sylvia can still be a decent mid carder, just not a headliner

That bastard, we will now have to see him in the ufc for 5 more fights. Imagine if he goes to a decision for all of them, he would be the most boring fighter ever.

That's it right there buddy. That's number 1 and 2 in HW division. Should be a good fight.

Lets be fair you cant rank AA ahead of Sylvia right after Tim just beat him twice.

Now if Tim keeps fighting the way hes been I can see the UFC buying out his contract. If hes a mid carder he would just be standing in the way of all the up and comers and they probably wont beat him due to Tims stand and pray technique. Thus no new contenders will emerge.

Although I think the idea may have been in the back of Dana's head, I highly doubt that the main reason to bring Cro Cop was for Sylvia... He has fighters that could beat him that are already exciting. Namely, Brandon Vera, who seizes to have a dull fight yet. All were entertaining and he definitely will murder Sylvia when they fight. I'm hoping they fight next because Vera deserves his shot. So when he kicks that boring bastard across his face his title run will be gone. But I really hope Cro Cop does come to the UFC, that would be a nice add.

I think he last fight with Monson proved that he is not worthy of being a champion. He is always talking about knocking people out and everyone is always talking about his striking ability, but he stood for the majority of 5 rounds with a man who was some 10 inches shorter than him, with a ridiculous reach advantage, Monson was completely GASSED for almost the entire final 2 rounds and he couldn't put him away, he obviously has a great defense I will give him that. Look at the champions in every other division, would they have gone to the decision in any fight that they have an advantage over their opponent? Tim Sylvia could be a GREAT fighter in my opinion, if he fought to finish fights, NOT fought simply not to lose the fight. Did Dana bring in Mirko specifically to take out Sylvia, maybe not, but did he bring in Mirko because he knows the Heavyweight class is anorexic with talent in the UFC? Definetly. I want to see Brandon Vera fight Sylvia, hopefully win, and then have Vera fight Cro-cop, once Cro-cop gets the heavy title I would love to see him go after the Light Heavy title also. I still say Mirko vs Chuck would be the fight of the century.
