When this match happens, I think Monson will beat Sylvia. Sylvia has just been too cautious lately and I think Monson will capitalize on it. What are your thoughts?

If Sylvia keeps it on his feet, it's going to be a looooong night for Monson. On the other hand if Monson can get it to the ground he could pull out the victory. I really don't know who I have winning this fight, but I want Monson to win. He's dope :p.

I hate seeing a boxer like sylvia as champ. The 12" hieght difference will be very interesting. I think monson can beat him. If he ever gets a chance to clinch with Sylvia he's going down for some GnP and hopfully a submission. I wouldn't bet on this fight though.

After Sylvia's performance against Andrei, it's very possible that he will get destroyed. On top of that he's terrible from his back. I think this fight could go either way, but Monson's jaw is too good for him to get KO'd. I give this fight to Jeff, but that's just because I like him better.

Damn..this would be one hard fight to call. I could see this fight going the distance, mostly with Monson looking for the takedown and Sylvia working on his sprawls and stand up. He works ground with Miletech every day, and I'm sure Jeremy Horn would help him form a good gameplan for Monson. It's too hard to call for me.

Sure I'm think Sylvia by unanimous decision or 3rd round TKO Strikes/Punches here. If I win just put in your sig "Jason Thacker is the next big thing". If you win I will put "Stephan Bonnar is the future light heavyweight champion". How about that?
JASON THACKER!!! Oh man you really want to make me look bad! Well, since Monson is going to win then I accept!

I agree. Can't wait till Monson wins. People will be like "Bonnar, I thought you were smart, whats up with your sig!" :laugh:.
If Monson wins then I don't have to put anything on my sig!

Go predict who you think is going to win at UFC 63 in my entitled UFC 63 prediction thread. You can bet me something else there too because Monson .vs. Sylvia isn't until November. Penn .vs. Hughes is in September so it will make this bet more interesting.
Let's see, I have BJ Penn destroying Matt Hughes and David Loiseau giving Mick Swick a beating!

I agree silva couldn't even finish a.a and a.a had a broken foot. Monson might just be to small. That's a massive reach to deal with. But i think he might be able to do it. Mind you i still belive a.a is better then both of them.

I don't know much about mma and UFC but was looking over some threads and just saw that Forrest Griffen beat Monson in 2002. How did that happen??? Reguardless of how it did, I just don't see this guy then being able to beat Tim.
Ambulance and Docs should be set and ready to go when this fight starts. I know Monson is a big boy but Tim is beast. He might want to rethink his political status because he's gonna need a good medacare program after this fight!
