Tim Sylvia's Opponents Conspiracy Theory

This is just something I've noticed.

We all know that Sylvia's gone cold, but I think the UFC is trying to fix that before having him fight CroCop, Gonzaga or Werdum.

Look at Monson, he's a 5'9" grappler. He's a great fighter, but he's exactly the kind of opponent that Sylvia is expected to KO. Unfortunately, his boxing experience kept him alive on his feet.

Look at Couture. Couture doesn't have the boxing experience Monson has. He's still six inches shorter than Sylvia, and he's never fought anyone with Sylvia's reach advantage. This is another opponent that Sylvia should, on paper at least, KTFO.

So here's what I think the UFC is doing:

I think that the UFC is throwing short grapplers, who they assume can't strike, at Sylvia, with the hope that he'll KO someone and get back on track.

I don't think it'll work, because I really don't see the Tim Sylvia that we've been seeing beating Couture in any way other than by decision.

The UFC could have let Vera have a shot at Sylvia, but the fact of the matter is, Vera is definitely not going to get KO'd by Sylvia.

I'm not sure. Its a possibility. I think though that if they knew they were getting Cro Cop eventually, they are just feeding him a bunch of people that he should beat, so when Cro Cop comes along he can whipe out the amazingly hated Tim Sylvia and everyone will love him?

I doubt it. I think Dana would rather see Randy win than see Sylvia win. And Vera could very easily be Ko'd by Sylvia. Hell Vera even said he wasn't ready for a title match. And he said he would wan't his fight with Chuck to be three rounds. Vera doesent even believe he could fight for five rounds.

This is a win/win for Dana reguardless who comes out on top. And Randy boxed in the military, doesn't possess knockout power but he can hold his own.

Is this guy completely retarded. There not giving him easy fights that he could easly win. There is no one else in the division besides Cro Cop, Culture and maybe Vera ( if he gets less money)that could beat him. Cro Cop will win But Randy has a good chance of pulling off an upset. Learn MMA and use your head before replying because you sound like your imbred which you probably are!!!!

Correct. The HW division is weak. They were giving him the best opponets they could give him. They haven't given him Vera because of his ridiculous contract demands. He has fought and beat everyone else. They haven't been feeding him weak opponents they just don't have many on Sylvia's level. AA is on that level but lost 2 out of 3 fights. Randy is on that level if he doesent show his age, Fabrico is on that level and Crocop is on that level. So they have some guys to throw at him now. But they didn't before.

Take it easy. Every post you make is hating on another poster. You see that "?" after murrayjb's post...that means he's unsure and that he's admitting that what he said may not be correct. Why jump down someones throat when you could have easily just posted your view point and pointed out why you think his "theory" is incorrect without using words such as "retarded" or "inbred".

haha, don't worry about it dude. This kirkardo kid basically just stalks every single post i make and calls me retarted. He takes the internet WAY to seriously, he still holds a grudge against me for bashing him because of his recently pointles VS threads.

He shouldnt be calling people retarted, especially when hes calling people Inbreds for posting somthing that has no corrolation with that at all.

Fisrt off its spelt "Retarded". I thought the first spelling error could of been a typo but twice in a row. Not only are you retarded at MMA you are also illiterate. I did make a joking thread of actors fighting and you bashed me about. Your a retarded loser and probably got picked on during elementary school and high school.
