I feel the same way, but I really believe Coutoure can pull it off. He is so much smarter and more experienced, and he's gonna take it to Sylvia...Sylvia has been way too passive in his last few fights and I don't think he'll be able to do that with The Natural

i would agree.....if sylvia comes out as slow as he did against munson, couture will rock him. couture also has much better cardio.

i want to see randy win but sylvia's jab+his newfound takedown defense scares me a little. this fight will probably have to be in the clinch while on the feet for randy to win

I do agree that Tim Sylvia isn't very skilled, but I just don't think that Randy can contend with the sheer size of him. As much as it pains me to say it, Tim Sylvia by KO.

I dont know who's going to win, but I know who's going to lose, all of the poor suckers that spend money on a worthless PPV.

If randy put on some pounds and he still has his endurance i would say that Randy will win cuz Sylvia is too slow and not versed enough on the ground, but in the instance that it is a stand up fight (which i think i wont be) Sylvia will knock him out with some bolo donkey punch.

Been impressed with Sylvia's abilty to adapt to different game plans even if I am not impressed with his desire to "not lose" vs "win". Hope he picks it up. He may have to this time.

Curious whether Randy is doing this because he wants the money, has the fighting itch again or he truly believes he has a game plan to take down the big man. I am sure the Monson fight taught him alot about Sylvia's abilities.

My money is on Couture. Age and experience to win!

I want Randy to win, but Sylvia has the huge size, age and confidence fo his last victories on his side.

Sylvia should win on paper, and I think probably will.

I hope Randy, but I'd have to say too much size and bad style matchup for him. Sylvia probably wins 3 outta 4 times they fight.

If Randy can close the distance and bring it to a clinch, Sylvia is gonna be in trouble.

Normally I would agree, but Ti'm to tall for the clinch to work well. Instead of landing uppercuts, he might get kneed in the face.

Has everyone here already fogotten about Randy? He lost the rematch and the rubber match to Chuck, but before that he was so damn dominant. He outboxed the Iceman in their first match. I am going to put my first $500 all on Randy. Easy money. Lemme know if you want to lose some funny money.

I think Sylvia will pull of the TKO in round 3. Couture's aging body cant last 5 rounds IMO.

I want Couture to win, but with Sylvia's elephantitis I think he'll pull out another boring ass win.

Sylvia's sprawl improved, and i think he's quite tall and heavy to take down from the clich. I dont know if the hw division will affect Couture's cardio, but i would say Sylvia by tko or ud. Im rooting for Randy though!

Buffffffff.

Randy it comes to dispute championships of grappling.

He draw with Jacaré ...

If the fight go to the ground... Randy Wins.
If the fight is on stand up... Sylvia cuts the eye of Randy!!! xDDDDDDD

I think that WHEN couture takes sylvia down his only option will be to pepper him with some shots and look for any submission openings and throw on a sub. I just dont think that Couture has the power to render him unconcious or make him unable to defend himself.
