It's great to see Big Tim being treated like the caliber fighter that he is.
wow tim looks alot bigger than fedor
but then again i always forget tim is 8 feet tall
Jesus Tim is huge.
Tim is such a gigantic fuck. I wanna see AA and babalu talk though.
Tims fist is the size of Fedors face
I don't get the Tim hate.
He isn't always the most exciting fighter, but he is really good.
I don't mind watchign his fights at all and I will be pulling for him against Fedor.
I'm glad hes getting a good pay day out of this.
Same, except I want to see Fedor kill him.
Unfortunately, if Fedor loses he will be completely discredited, since he was beat by a "boring" fighter with no abs.
This is gonna be a VERY hard fight for fedor. especially with Tim's takedown defense.
Is Affliction in a cage or ring?
Despite everyones 180 in their way of thinking about Tim Sylvia, I still dislike him.
Anyone here the rumor that they are putting on a Concert in between the Prelims and Main Card?
Tim is a decent fighter. He's not very broad in his skill set though, at least what I've viewed through watching him. I wouldn't say he is a good fighter, he doesn't show anything that is impressive. His goal is to stay away and pick shots and avoid the takedown. Tim gets sluggish with his punching, and throws lazy jabs. Fedor should be able to walk right through that. At least he better, I'm sure he's training his ass off against bigger opponents. Hell he won a Sambo championship last year to a guy Sylvias size.
Goddamnit this is going to be an awesome fight. I haven't been this pumped about any fight for a long time. Just watching the conference is giving me chills.
HMC's fists are the size of Fedor's head.
I can't wait for this fight.
i don't think tims takedown defense is all that great, couture took him down at will and the only other time i saw him use his defense was against jeff monson, who shoots with the speed of a lawnmower. couture got a lot of takedowns off the clinch where fedor gets most of his takedowns from
I agree. Nog actually double legged him and Nog doesn't exactly have spectacular takedowns and is no where near as explosive as Fedor.
Haha the size difference is amazing. Then again he's going to be bigger than basically anyone he fights.
Fedor and Timmy on Inside MMA.
i should have said he has a good sprawl. and while fedor gets 99% of his takedowns from tie ups, Tim is also pretty decent at protecting himself and getting back to his feet.
I dont see this being the walk in the park for fedor that everyone is making it out to be.
i don't think it's gonna be a walk in the park at all, i think this is fedors biggest test/fight. I do believe he has the ability to take him down if he chooses, but i also believe he has the speed to trade with tim.
The size difference isnt that amazing, Fedor has stepped in the ring with a bigger man his whole life.
Now that is a size difference
biggest test/fight is going too far
