    If Tim wins then I guess we can consider Randy to be the number 1 HW.

    Yeah I would consider Couture #1 if Tim wins but I don't see that happening at all. I see an armbar coming Timmy's way.

    He hasn't signed with anyone yet. I don't think he really has to either because everyone except the UFC is willing to pay him well for one fight at a time.

    Sylvia will prevail, but not until both are severely beaten. I think Sylvia will be in the best shape of his life and well prepared for this fight. After losing two straight championship matches, Sylvia has something to prove ASAP!! The Maineiac will prevail!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Fedor almost got knocked out by Fujita for those who haven't seen that fight. I know Fedor will win and he will kick ass. Tim Sylvia reminds me of Heath Herring and Fedor has already fought him and made him look like a chump who got embarassed. I know, Herring's no Sylvia, but Fedor is too well rounded and is the best at locking in an armbar. Fedor by kimura/armbar.

    Fedor didnt almost get knocked out he got rocked yeah but he was never almost unconscious. But yes fedor did get hurt by him but u cant deny that he can take a punch. And also fedor is so well rounded that he will beat tim anywhere this fight goes. Fedor has some serious striking skills. He will peace the shit out of Sylvia's face. And if it goes to the ground Fedor wil submit him. I dont really see this fight going to the ground unless Fedor does some sambo on his ass. Tim is a boring weird looking goofy fuck that will never be a fun fighter to watch. He doesnt even have a personality. I know fedor is like a robot but he is very fun to watch. Fedor is an animal. Who in the UFC would step up and fight Hong Man Choi. Thats right the heavyweight division ends at 265. They make it impossible but still ask urself would tim really fight Hong? No Way.
