Check out Tim's post-fight interview on Sherdog. At one point, they ask him how he feels he matches up against Pride's top heavyweights (being that Pride's Silva may fight Liddell in November). Tim said he met Fedor Emelianenko, and he's a "tiny little shit". LOL. I don't think he meant any disrespect, but I did find the statement amusing.

Here's the link if you want to see the whole thing:

Yeah, I believe Fedor would dominate Sylvia and do it in rather impressive fashion. Fedor is all business.

Pride is trying to establish a larger presence in the US, so a Fedor/Tim fight isn't impossible somewhere down the road, and would probably be one of the biggest grossing fights in MMA history. Red Devil vs. Miletich. Hmmm.

Is it just me or does Sylvia remind anyone of Frankenstein's monster just lumbering around the ring dragging his back foot as he tries to set up his shots. Has anyone ever tested his ground game?? Andre A. proved he has no heart against Sylvia last night and was completely intimidated by him. What a pathetic showing by AA. I can understand respecting your opponent but his attitude in the ring showed me that he was afraid of getting hurt and would not take chances :mad: . Why the hell did he never try to take him down???

I have to admit, Sylvia has an odd physical appearance in the cage. Granted, he's a big man, but he's not going to win any physique contests, that's for sure. ;)

I have no idea about his ground game. The glimpses I've seen of it in the past didn't show much. He's 6'8", so I can't see him being a panther on the ground.

Fedor would kill him. There is no way fedor would've been involved in a fight that boring as aa and tim had. That's why i like the yellow card rule from pride. UFC needs this.

the yellow card is the greatest thing. it is the only way to prevent these type of fights (boring ones). UFC will never get that. I see so many fights that could be so much better if the ref would just push the action. Apparently the best way to do that is through their paychecks.

That fight between Sylvia and Arlovski was terrible. Sylvia was beging for a Crocop style highkick from the 3rd round on. Did anyone see his lazy hands drop every time he threw his 5 second jab. He is completely inferior and does not deserve the title. AA never tried to take it from him though.

:thumbsdown: :thumbsdown:

Fedor would own Sylvia! I hope the Silva vs. Liddell fight will set up more interpromotional fights like Fedor vs. Sylvia. Sylvia sucks in my opion and Arlovski shouldn't have *****ed out last night and should have fought like a real man.

You guys MIGHT believe me, but you might not, but anyway I heard through the grapevines there is something BIGGER than Silva/Chuck in the works....it involves both UFC and Pride.......MY guess, is a joint show with Fedor/Sylvia as the main event, obvoiusly.....I'll ask around tomorow at JiuJitsu and see if anyone else heard of it.....

Maybe pride fighting is coming to the states. Maybe they'll have a champ versus champ show. That would be very cool.

The only problem is no organization wants to lose face. If say pride won every fight that wouldn't be good for UFC business and vice versa.

Fedor would beat his ass. Tim is nothing more thatn a fat POS. I hope PRIDE does come to the US, but it seems to me that they need more orgination in it. they have eay to much stuff going on. It confuses me

What everyone is really failing to see is the true MMA badass of them all. The badass in Danny Abaddi.

If they were to put Fedor and Abaddi into the octagon we would have a world's first for MMA.

Hmmm. I like the thought of that. Let us know if you hear any rumors.

Sylvia vs. Bob Sapp

I was very impressed by Tim's improvement in hand speed. This was clearly a big difference. AA wimped out by the fifth round because no matter what he threw at Tim, Tim's counter punches kept landing. AA had simply had enough. As long as the title is not on the line, I think Fedor vs Sylvia would be a good fight. Tim has now shown that he is willing to fight defensively in order not to lose the belt. I understand that tactic but it makes for boring fights when the champ won't fight the way he did to get the belt.

I don't see how Sylvia vs. Fedor would be a "bigger" fight than Liddell vs. Silva. Chuck Liddell and Wanderlei Silva are the 2 kings of their respective organizations, I've never met a person that didn't either like both guys or agree that they are without a doubt 2 of the best in the business. Noone cares about Tim Sylvia, it would almost be a slap in the face to Fedor to even make him fight Sylvia.

is there a BAN feature on this website? haha just kidding....but I truly hope you're not serious about the Abaddi thing......unless you are him and are just trying to get yourself noticed? lol

and as for the rumors, like i said ill ask around tomorow, and report the rumblings
