If Tim takes this fight to a decision then it will be his third fight in a row that has gone on for 25 minutes. If this happens he will lose alot of my respect and i will hate him with a passion for the rest of my life.

Sylvia beats CC...isn't that the first sign of the apocolypse? I'm starting to warm up to Tim but his time is limited with CroCop in the UFC now

I am tempted to say that a few people will have to respect him, because Randy, even coming out of retirement, is a great.

But most will come up with a way to ignore it. Some will ignore the evidence (i.e. they will just keep saying "he's fat, he talks sh*t, fights defensively and soils himself", ignoring his record and the fact he is obviously a good kickboxer, as usual). Some will try to minimize the significance of the evidence "Randy's old", "Tim is just a bad matchup for Randy", "Tim is just big".

A lot depends on the fight. If it is a 5-round, amazing fight where they put it on the line I think he will get respect. Because the average MMS fan, including hald the people here, has the memory of a goldfish. "Not human" one week, "can" the next.

LOL.

The third. I think they go

Seven Seals of the Apocalypse

1. Goldie makes an intelligent comment about a fight
2. A fighter in a UFC match does a leg kick and Joe Rogan doesn't sat "Oh! Nice leg kick!"
3. Sylvia beats CroCop
4. Phil Baroni becomes a Gay Rights activist
5. ricefarmer replies to a post on this forum without being pesonally abusive
6. Danny Abiatti signs for Pride, goes up to heavyweight and beats Fedor
7. People on Sherdog stop posting obsessively about the superiority of Pride over UFC

When 7. comes, we really will know it is the end of the world.

he got his arm broken and didnt tap and wanted to continue the fight.

Hey, I gotta give you that one, he did try to keep going with a broken arm. On the other hand, i wonder if that fight with Mir is an indication of the direction his next fight will go?

i hate silvia cause he's a staroid abusing ass... sorry, once you use them you don't get a pass. especially not when you used them to win a title fight against a superior natural fighter like Ricco at the time.

secondly, he's a jerk. i don't respect fighters who don't respect other fighters. you can say "that's fighting" all you want, but it isn't. it's american assholeness. look at PRIDE's guys, they're always respectable. even when they come to the UFC, they are.

silvia has never proven himself. ooh, he beat AA.. that just shows how overrated and protected AA was. and if he beats Couture... so what, he beat a retired guy whos twice his size? it's like having having an angry giant fight a champion midget wrestler... who cares...

whiskey, racism, money, grease, twinkie's, guns.....yep lol thats about it

All the wins in the world wouldn't make me like him.

But a win over Cro Cop would force me to admit he is one of the best.

Thankfully it will never happen.
