I can't stand Sylvia and here's why:
Sylvia has alot of potential as a fighter. For his size and his understanding of kickboxing he's fantastic. He used to be one of the best young strikers around when he was beating Cabbage and Ricco Rodriguez, but somewhere between his second fight with Arlovski and his third, he lost his will to be the best fighter that he could be.
Since beating Arlovski in their second fight we've seen him get slower, we've seen his punches lag and his cardio turn to sh*t. Now he's just trying to hold onto his title by hiding behind his jab.
Honestly, I can't respect that.
If Sylvia shows up at UFC 68 and KTFO's Couture in the first round like he should, based on what he's capable of, then that's awesome and I will, once again, be a Tim Sylvia fan, but he has to earn my respect back.
