Comparing Randy and Monson is kind of like comparing apples and oranges, they have two totally different fighting styles.

When monson shoots for a takedown he goes for a double or single leg, randy tends to try to go for a throw or a trip with underhooks from the clinch. Randy has better standup than monson as well, though at his age he would be a fool to try to exchange with sylvia on the feet.

Monson is a submission wrestler, while randy is a classic ground and pound against the fence guy.

Randy's best bet to win the fight is dirty boxing in the clinch, and takedowns with underhooks. I can't remember ever seeing Sylvia fighting in the clinch that much and it might be a soft spot for randy to exploit. Though I'm sure militech is working on that with TIm.

The real problem that randy faces is getting past Tim's reach and into the clinch. Over and over again he has been caought rushing in to the clinch with his arms out, chin out, just waiting for a bomb to drop. Sometimes the other guy misses (belfort scraping his eye) , sometimes he get's hit and shakes it off (van arsedale, over and over again), and sometimes he get's dropped (chuck).

If randy can successfully get into the clinch with Big Tim, not get popped on the way in, and jockey into position for a takedown at least once each round, he stands a chance of a decision win. It's an extremely slim chance, but it's really the only option he's got.

Whats the big difference if there on roids, its not like it makes their performance worse? hence the name performance enhancing? And Randy Lost to Barnett, where as cro cop beat him 3 times.

Favourite fighters:

1. Mirko Cro Cop
2. Rampage Jackson
3. Chuck Liddell
4. Anderson Silva
5. Mark Hunt

I am pretty sure the game plan for Sylvia is going to be similar to his previous fight: maintain his comfort zone and just jab Couture for 2-3 rounds but then, hopefully, go for the finish in the later rounds.

If Couture tries to clinch, Sylvia will probably just overpower him and push him off. Sylvia is just too strong for Couture, the man cuts weight to make 265lbs.

FUJITA > RANDY

Im on the fence about this one. I want Randy to win and if Randy can take Tim down Tim is finished. But if Randy wins then we all know the winner is going to have to face Cro-cop and I really like Randy, if Chuck can KO you that easily, CC will really Kill you.


I think Randy would be a easier fight for CC then Tim though. I just think Randy picked a bad time to come back.

can someone explain this to me, i like randy and all, but how do you get knocked out twice in a row,then retire, then decide to come back as a HW and automatically get a title shot your first match back? is the HW division that thin? i'm a big fan of randy i'm just wondering how he bypassed everyone and gets to fight silvia.

To answer you question,if Randy is able to put forth his gane,he can beat anybody.Now a question for you,WHAT IN THE HELL WOULD POSSESS YOU TO USE A NAKED 150 YEAR OLD WOMAN AS AN AVATAR??????not funny,just disturbing.Thank you for warping my mind just a tad more than what it alreday was.......
