Here it is... It'll be Arlovski Vs Monson Im sure... He may be smaller but he packs one heck of a punch! I can see it now... Spear the big oaf right into the cage, take him down and smash his face in!

I wonder what Tim will carry around with him instead of the belt when Jeff is wearing it around lol

Oh, Well that wasn't very nice! If Tim can stay off the ground, he will win!

You never know. Tim could suffer the tyson fate. Rember when tiny tyson would get in close so bigger guys can't really unload on him then rain body shots and uppercuts. Monson is tyson like. Myabe he will use this stratagy.

From what Ive seen of Monson thats unlikely but possible I guess.

I just havent been impressed with Silvia at all. I was SHOCKED when AA lost to him TWICE!

I guess thats all it takes, 1 good shot in the right place and its over, which goes to prove it could be anyones fight, really. Except Monson is really aggressive in his fights and I can bet just about anything he'll rush right in on Silvia and take him down (or try to)

I dont think Silvia will be prepared for an immediate takedown,. probably figures on a standup for awhile. Except Monson knows the reach advantage is too great, so the takedown has to happen, the clinch at the bvery least. And he hits JUSt as hard, or damn close.

Monson 1st round GNP 2nd for sure:D

Unless Monson pulls something strange and unexpected I can't see him winning!

I'm sure Militich has Silvia training take down defense with Hughes (5'9" as is Monson) doing the shooting.

taking absolutely nothing away from hughes...i think he lacks the power...i cant see him (once he shoots in...or even gets close) delivering the power shots and handleing sylvia like monson can do. I dont think 260 is much of a challenge for monson to lift /move

Monson hasn't beaten anyone worth notice. I think his record against decent opposition is like 2-4, with another loss coming to a scrub. There is just no way he beats Sylvia. I would give him a chance but his height disadvantage is just too much of a mismatch.
Sylvia by KO or TKO in round 1.

XFC heavyweight champion, Cagewarriors heavyweight champion, Fightsport heavyweight champion, 2X Abu Dhabi world champion.

two of his losses being to chuck (he doesnt belong in lhw and it still went to the judges) and ricco...i dont know if id call them scrubs..... im not sayin hes gonna dominate..but all he has to do is put him down once...and if he survived chucks must faster and probably compareable in power punchs (def more frequent and elusive then sylvias) he has a good ****in shot.

The difference in strength is not the point. But rather the simulation in Monson's height, the speed of the shoot and getting Silvia's reflex timing down to react in sprawls is what they'll be training.

You also made note of "power shots". If they expect Monson to punch his way in to shoot afterward, they'll have Hughes simulating that as well. Trust and believe.

fair enough...just kinda hard to try and practice a real fight scenerio with someone whos not the guy...like if he can shake off hughes once he tried to take him down....it might not be as easy for him since monsons stronger

id also say its probly fairly easy to find a tall striker
