Although the second Affliction show is still over a month away, future plans include a third show that will most likely take place in January of February 2009. One fight that Affliction Vice President Tom Atencio is looking at is one that some fans have been talking about for quite some time.

"In terms of fighters we are looking at Jerome LeBanner, he is interested in doing MMA and apparently him and Tim Sylvia have some history between them so that is something that we are looking at right now."

Say goodnight Timmy!

Tim's only shot to win will be via rear naked shart.

I'll go out and say Timmy via First round KO. I ve always though that Le Banner has a glass jaw.

I think big Tim will beable to pick up the win in this match up. Le Banner has a suspect chin no disrespect to him hes a tough guy , but I think if big Tim catches him with some shots he will go down.

My Pick Tim Sylvia / 2nd rd / ko - tko

You're out of your mind if you think Tim can KO Le Banner! Le Banner is one of the most explosive stand-up fighters in the world. Sylvia won't land a jab before he's asking his corner "what the f**k just happened?". Le Banner by KO within 2 minutes of the first round.

Why would Tim try to stand in this fight ? he had Monson in some bad spots on the ground I think he is going to get it to the ground ASAP.

Does anyone else think that Tim gets dropped a lot? It seems like in a lot of fights he gets hit and goes down. He does recover pretty quickly (usually) though.

Wow JLB is sick and i always wanted him to fight in MMA! im excited... i do feel bad for big Tim though. If he thought Fedor came out the swinging and setting a intense pace then Le Banner is the same deal for 80% of his fights.

Oh my god... Timmah, if you take this fight you're stupid. JLB would wreck Sylvia

I love JLB, but I gotta go with Tim. Its true Tim does get dropped a lot, but never gets KO'd. might just be a center of gravity thing, but who cares.

I got Tim via UD in this one.

Wait. Someone's paying Tim Sylvia to fight?

Like, fight on a television broadcast?

LeBanner's chin might be a little suspect but his striking is on a whole other level than big Tim.

I say LeBanner by broken leg TKO late in the first.

Kind of funny video, most of you probably have seen it.

I would really want to see this fight. Hope it happens. Not sure who would win, should be great though.

Ha, Tim is ruining his career. At least in UFC, they seemed to protect him and try to match him up to be the favorite. Anywhere else (Affliction), we are seeing Tim isn't the top ten HW we thought he was. He is simply a big guy that will not be able to handle MMA veterans and new era HWs. I hope Lebanner embarresses him.

No chance the UFC would be able to sign Jerome, he will not leave K-1 and the UFC woulden't let him do both. Jerome will kill Tim if it stays standing.

I could see Jerome leaving K-1 for a chance to fight with the UFC. Le Banner said himself the K-1 tournments can really break you down, for a guy like him who's been fighting with K-1 since 1993, that's gotta be hard on the body.
