Well i hate to disagree with you but...........
1)VS AA, they were very bad fights for him. Fight one he got KO'd, that doesnt make him exciting it makes AA exciting.
2)VS AA......again. He almost got knocked out, then knocked out AA with what I consider a very lucky punch in the way that AA ran into it thinking he had Tim finished. Again not really Tim making it a good fight.
3)VS Snowman. Jab.....Jab.....Jab.....snowman throws a combo, Tim pretty much runs away.......jab.....jab.........jab
Go watch his last fights again they are brutal. Not only that but i mean technically against the snowman, just watch his striking, ITS REALLY BAD. I mean i consider it VERY sloppy when your hands are below your shoulders all the time and you JUMP IN TO THROW A UPPERCUT.
The only reason he gets away with this is because of his size and reach. I thought like you did, until i really sat down and looked at his style or well lack there of. He is a terrible fighter, albiet he did show some good ground game against a very tired Jeff in the late stages.
I just dont like fighters who fight "not to loose". And that is what he does. He is content to go 5 rounds and jab you to death. When he meets Cro-cop he is finished, hell if he fought Vera I think Tim would have gotten destroyed. Why do you think Randy is going back in? Randy is completely right, Aserio Slyiva (i know i know SP is off) a much shorter but good striker almost beat Tim in a pure stand up game. He had no trouble getting in close.
If Randy can close the gap like that on Tim he will beat him. If Cro-cop closes the gap on you like that Tim will be waking up with a nose looking worse then Franklins in the hospital.
