I hate Tim sylvia but i also respect him because he is the champ and not everyone in the world gets to be a ufc champion. If he beats Randy and cro cop i will still hate him forever but i will respect him.

Big Tim already has my respect. He's the HW Champ, and he's defended his belt. He's 23-2 because he's a very good fighter, and really one of the most underrated. The reason I, and I'm assuming many others, don't like him is his talk/personality. Before fights he always says he'll end it early. But problem is, I don't see that when they step in the cage. He's a great fighter, but as Couture said, he fights not to lose rather than to win, and thats why I'll never like him.

But he's always had my respect.
Isnt that the issue though? How can you respect a guy who's kept his belt by putting on lame fights? Use Pride as an example. Even the losers get respect IF they put on a good fight. I dont care if Tim wins or not, I pay to see a good fight and when he talks all kinds of trash then goes in and plods through... I loose all respect! I dont think he understands that people like a fighter because of HOW he plays the game, not the he plays it.

I've always backed up Sylvia. He has had three boring fights in his career. He has knocked just about everyone else out. He is a very good fighter. And i think all the recent sh** he has taken he is going to go balls to the wall against couture. He probably gets a knockout and then i think he will do very very well against crocop. I don't know if he wins but he will put up a hell of a fight.

Ive asked that million dollar question a few times, if Tim wins against Mirko, I'm sure everyone will make up a reason why it wasn't a good win and Fedors name would be brought up a million times.

I like to speculate on fights like that and always keep an open mind because it is a fight and anything can happen in a fight.....yes including a knockout win over Mirko Filipovic,nameldnaR niveK

Well, even though some of you are stating that Sylvia will beat Couture, the bets say otherwise. There are a lot more bets for Couture than for Sylvia, I guess people's hatred for Sylvia runs very deep.

From an objective point of view, it is unlikely that Couture would win this fight.
I think this is a perfect fight for Sylvia, if he can (T)KO Couture he would regain some of that lost respect.

Hell, I actually predict a 4th round KO victory for Sylvia. However, if it goes to a decision, I will lose all respect for him.

he has my respect because he has fought and won fights. he fought with a stomach illness. he got his arm broken and didnt tap and wanted to continue the fight.

you can't tell me that if anyone else did that, people wouldnt be talking them up.

because he's had a few boring fights, people hate him. but they need to realize he's still a good fighter.

I really do believe hes going to knock out Randy. I dont see this fight going more then 3 rounds and I hope Tim will get his aggresiveness back. He honestly has a potential to be a great champion which is why it sucks he fights so cautiously sometimes.
