UFCThe Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is a U.S.-based mixed martial arts organization, recognized as the largest MMA promotion in the world. The UFC is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada and is owned and operated by Zuffa, LLC. This promotion is responsible for solidifying the sport's postion in the history-books.
UFC is currently undergoing a remarkable surge in popularity, along with greater mainstream media coverage. UFC programming can now be seen on FOX, FX, and FUEL TV in the United States, as well as in 35 other countries worldwide.
Check out Tim's post-fight interview on Sherdog. At one point, they ask him how he feels he matches up against Pride's top heavyweights (being that Pride's Silva may fight Liddell in November). Tim said he met Fedor Emelianenko, and he's a "tiny little shit". LOL. I don't think he meant any disrespect, but I did find the statement amusing.
Yeah, I believe Fedor would dominate Sylvia and do it in rather impressive fashion. Fedor is all business.
Pride is trying to establish a larger presence in the US, so a Fedor/Tim fight isn't impossible somewhere down the road, and would probably be one of the biggest grossing fights in MMA history. Red Devil vs. Miletich. Hmmm.
Is it just me or does Sylvia remind anyone of Frankenstein's monster just lumbering around the ring dragging his back foot as he tries to set up his shots. Has anyone ever tested his ground game?? Andre A. proved he has no heart against Sylvia last night and was completely intimidated by him. What a pathetic showing by AA. I can understand respecting your opponent but his attitude in the ring showed me that he was afraid of getting hurt and would not take chances . Why the hell did he never try to take him down???
the yellow card is the greatest thing. it is the only way to prevent these type of fights (boring ones). UFC will never get that. I see so many fights that could be so much better if the ref would just push the action. Apparently the best way to do that is through their paychecks.
That fight between Sylvia and Arlovski was terrible. Sylvia was beging for a Crocop style highkick from the 3rd round on. Did anyone see his lazy hands drop every time he threw his 5 second jab. He is completely inferior and does not deserve the title. AA never tried to take it from him though.
Fedor would own Sylvia! I hope the Silva vs. Liddell fight will set up more interpromotional fights like Fedor vs. Sylvia. Sylvia sucks in my opion and Arlovski shouldn't have *****ed out last night and should have fought like a real man.
You guys MIGHT believe me, but you might not, but anyway I heard through the grapevines there is something BIGGER than Silva/Chuck in the works....it involves both UFC and Pride.......MY guess, is a joint show with Fedor/Sylvia as the main event, obvoiusly.....I'll ask around tomorow at JiuJitsu and see if anyone else heard of it.....
