Can Randy Couture beat Tim Sylvia
 
What are Randy's advantages and disadvantages going into this fight with Tim Sylvia? Your thoughts!

Slamnbam88 01-10-2007 05:41 PM

i dont see it happening

size matters...and see how tim fought monson...a guy whos probly stronger then randy and has just as good a ground game.

Ya, I like Randy's game and dislike Tim's, but can a natural 205 lb beat a guy who has to cut weight to get to 265? I highly doubt it, I think Tim scores a KO/TKO sometime in the 2nd round.

Hate to admit it, but even though Tim Sylvia is as boring as watching baseball or cricket, he's still got the skills and more importantly the size.

I would absolutely love Randy to prove me wrong though!!

Lol wtf, i thought randy was retired.

Randy can punch though, Monson lost the fight in first round cause he burned out trying to take sylvia down...when he finally did, he was gassed and could not do anything effective... Randy can get inside and do some dirty boxing then put sylvia on the mat and pummel him...

Sylvia is a better fighter than he gets credit for, but his tactics, which do win him fights, are boring to watch...he needs to finish fights, rather than just counterpunching to get a bigger fan base built up

it really can go either way and im jazzed up to see this match

Randy is alot better than Monson at everything except submissions. This will be a different fight. And Randy isnt a natural 205 guy. I think he is a great fighter at 205 but he looked so much stronger at HW. Look at his fights with Rizzo. Randy is a monster in those fights, and Rizzos strikes are just as good as Big Tim's. I think Tim will win, but Randy will make it fun to watch. His fights are never boring.
