Tim Sylvia defeats Brandon Vera by Unanimous Decision Saturday night at UFC 77. The majority of the fight was held up against the cage in the clinch. Vera looked overwhelmed by Tim Syvia’s size, landing only a hand full of strikes in the first and third rounds. Vera was able to connect a small number of strikes and a takedown to win the second round. The only real action was at the end of the third round when Sylvia puts together some combinations, to easily win the third round.

After the decision the crowed booed Tim Sylvia for his boring fighting style. In the post fight interview, Vera defends Big Tim and stated that he had broken his hand in the first round.

I was surprised the crowed booed only Tim Sylvia, Vera was by far the less active fighter. Sylvia even resorted to yelling at Vera “Comon Brandon” during the first round.
