Yea i think Tim has got this one inn the bag , im predictiing a 1st/2nd Rd KO... theres nnobody really in he UFC hvw division who can put up a decent challenge to Sylvia right now, maybe after a couple more fights they can throw Vera in there with Tim or maybe even KONGO OR Buentello they would be willing to throw down

Not really. At UFC 59 he fought Marcio ‘Pe De Pano’Cruz and he got a split decision. Cruz was doing good due to his reach advantage aginst Monson. Cruz is not even a boxer he's a BJJ fighter and he managed to bloody Monson up pritty nicely. Now imagine Tim Silvia's much more difinitive reach advantage and by far better striking than Cruz against Monson. Monsons ok but he's destined to loose this fight IMO.

everyones entitled to their own opinion but i just find it weird that you think Sylvia is a boring fighter , out of his 9 total fights in the UFC 7 of them ended in Rd 1 only 2 went to a decision and out of his 24 profesional fights only 4 in total went to a decision, 75% of the time he Knocks somene out

I think Sylvia's is going to be too cautious to even go for a knockout against Monson. Unless Monson picks up the pace, this could be another TS vs AA 3.

I dont see that happpening , Sylvia has just fought the baddest striker in the UFC 3x now , fighting Monson ( whs basically strictly a wrestler ) is like a treat for big Tim :D Trust

There were no fireworks in the Assuerio Silva fight. Sylvia just did enough to win, that all.

I think Tim is afraid that someone will pull another Fank Mir on him. That's why he was extra cautious at Bitter Rivals.

silvia vs monson

this is a really weak fight for a pay per view headliner. I think Monson does just enough to win, unless its a fighter he can get into a submission. I think quite a few of monsons fights have been boring, but he is still a pretty good fighter. Silvia won't get taken to the ground, the big Brazilian Silva couldn't do it and neither will Monson. That was a really boring fight too. Monson won't knock him out if Andre and Cabbage couldn't. I see Silvia winning this fight the same way he beat Arlowski. Use his height and unless the guy sticks his chin out, to win it on points and not get taken down. Monson is to dominant on the ground lately and seems to have a pretty good chin. I see Silvia winning this fight handily. Honestly, the whole division needs to step up. I like the Truth Vera a lot, I've bet on him to win all of his fights. But is he really going to beat a guy who is 6-8 and outweighs him by 40 pounds. The truth should drop down and try to get a shot at 205. I think the fight everyone wants to see will die on the vine the same with Wanderli's fight did. I'd love to see a slugfest with Mark Hunt, Fedor or little bro, Cro Crop, rampage jackson, or get Bas RUtten back into the ring and give him a shot.

I agree the headline is weak and the UFC thinks that just because its a HW Title fight that fans are gonna wanna watch the fight. To have a good PPV the matches have to be good and worthy of the headliner. Sylvia fighting Mark Hunt, "Rampage" Jackson, or Mirko CroCop would be a better fight. Sylvia is the HW champ because there is no real competition in the UFC. I do hope Monson beats Sylvia but I don't know.

Its funny how everyone has forgotten about AA and totally written him off. The guys weapon if he used his leg kicks in last fight alot more he would beaten sylvia. Not like sylvia totally smashed him fight was 50/50 only reason he one was caz champion always get preference if fight isnt clear. Even second fight he knocked silvia on his arse, then got caught rushing in..

Hey heard some new about AA during last tim sylvia fight. Apparently before fight had ankle injury that was attended to seemed alright. Then during second round (when he stopped doing kicks) apparenlty he did somthing to his knee cap and ankle hense reason his punches where lacking the kick to them and wasnt doing leg kicks. After fight he was suspend for not telling them about his injuries! After fight he took time of to fix his injuries. AA didnt wanna say anything during fight so they wouldnt stop it apparenlty. He has kept it hush hush caz he didnt wanna take it away from fact he lost.
