This is an easy one for me. Cro-cop by KO.

Yeah, agreed. His leg kicks will be brutal and will probably take Sylvia out of his game and leave him vulnerable for a head kick. I don't think Crop Cop will have any problem lifting his leg that high for the kick either.

Yeah, I don't think Crocop will have too much trouble reaching Sylvia's head after he lands a couple of leg kicks. He's landed shots on Aleksander Emelianenko (6'6") and Sylvia leans into his punches.

Not even close one bit. Tim Sylvia first off probably would leave his head open to be chopped off by Mirko. And second off Mirko would outstrike him. Mirko would win in a minute probably, bad match up for Tim Sylvia.

I just voted for Tim now(the second one)just to be difficult:cheeky4: . I would guess crocop would win but you have to give a Tim a chance. He isn't a bad fighter and with his reach he could land a big shot. Crocop's spacing, imo, was a little tight with Wandy although he keeps his defense tight and throws very nice straight shots. I think Tim is a good fighter and with his size he has a chance. I would bet on the long shot with Tim unless the odds weren't good enough then I take Crocop. I have been in ma for a very long time and to say this guy would crush that guy is fun but often incorrect when you are talking about proven fighters.

This fight is kind of unrealistic. Tim Sylvia doesn't have half the balls to sign a contract with CroCop, nor Fedor. In a recent interview, I heard Fedor offered Sylvia a contract, and Sylvia subsequently denied.

But, if the fight were to go down... I'd say Mirko would win, submission strikes. :)

big size advantage but cro cop could beat steroid boy. slow him down with some good kicks and maybe ko him with the big head kick (if he can get it up that high)
