“I’ve met Fedor…he’s a tiny little shit.”
-The Great Tim Syliva after UFC 61
If we get to see Wandy vs Lidell, maybe we can finally see Tim fight a real top heavyweight and get broken. You don’t even need Fedor, I’d bet $100 that Aleksander would beat his brains in. Aleksander and Fedor could rule the HW division of both orgs.[/quote]
Look at this, I go away for one weekend, and I miss all of the action.
First of all, the fight between Sylvia and Arlovski was the most pathetic heavyweight championship match I’ve ever seen. They should have made it 12, 2 minute rounds, given them big red gloves, and made kicks illegal…
Even with Arlovski’s grown in chin protector (aka his huge beard to save his ass) he was too afraid to form any kind of offense.
Had he continued to utilize the leg kicks alone, nevermind opting for a takedown, he would have won because by the 4th/5th round Sylvia’s chicken legs would have been broken.
That aside, why the fuck is Arlovski turning into the most one-dimensional fighter I’ve ever seen? He needs to stop being a douchebag and start acting like his other Sambo masters aka the Emelianenko brothers. I’m pretty sure I could take Sylvia down with a simple ankle pick because he is the most unathletic human being I have ever seen in my entire life.
Here is a list of international heavyweights that would destroy Sylvia, hands down:
Mark Hunt, Josh Barnett, Jerome LeBanner, Cro Cop, Randleman, Nog, Vovchancyn, Emelianenko Brothers, Shogun (if he gained some weight and was healthy), etc… basically the list is endless because Sylvia is pathetic.
