    wow his english is probably the best out of the brazilian fighters. and damn, he got probably the worst cauliflower ear i've seen… maybe worse than randy couture and dan henderson.

    Nogueira is a very stuff test for Sylvia and will not be intimidated by Sylvia's size either. Sylvia needs a knockout victory in order to gain fan support, so he will be swinging for the fences. If Nogueira takes big Tim down, then it's going to be a tough night for him. Sylvia has proven to have exceptional take down defense in his matches with some of the best take down artists such as Jeff Monson. This fight could really go any way in my oppinion. I think Sylvia has the advantage of experience in fighting in the cage and the UFC rules, opposed to Nogueira fighting in a ring and having slightly different rules in Pride. As we all know the Pride guys have not faired the best in the UFC so far.

    to me tim has only faced two tough fighters randy(loss) and aa(one loss one win on boring fight) monson is tough but tim was just to big for him he lost to mir who at his best was not a top 5 h.w. this will be his biggest test to date as far as i am concerned and i think he will fail.
