fedor has dominated a much stronger heavyweight division and tim just doesnt look that impressive to me. fedor would have destroyed snowman with bombs in the first round. my answer is no, tim couldnt last 2 rounds with fedor

Tim Sylvia wouldn't last 2 minutes with Fedor, let alone 2 rounds. Sylvia has to start wanting to win fights instead of fighting just not to lose, because that's exactly what he does. He's so wrapped up with being champion that he is way too conservative. Fedor wins by total annihalation, 1:30 rd. 1.

I don't know. Did anybody think that Fujita was going to rock Fedor? Did anybody think that The Monster ws going to KO Cro-Cop? That's why they fight. We have no idea what's going to happen. We like to think that so and so is going to win. Sylvia is 6'8" but he ain't no Zulu. I could so him giving Fedor some trouble.

Of course anything is possible...that should never be forgotten. But IMO Sylvia isn't in the same league as Fedor.

i think by jabbing and running sylvia could last a little while maybe even 2 rounds, that is of course assuming we mean 5 min. rounds

Sylvia would last for two rounds cause he is the master of stalling. Fedor can end him whenever he wants so he would just wait for Sylvia to throw a jab (more then likely in the third round) and empty a can of unmerciful counter punching on him.

With that being said Sylvia has the potential to be a threat if and when he decides that he wants to fight to win.

Tim has a good shot at Fedor you'll see when he wins crocop by knockout.

NO, he wouldn't last 2 rds with Fedor. Tim stalls and most of his opponents are scared of his long reach and aren't aggressive enough, Fedor on the other hand is def. not scared of Tim's standup and would be aggressive and overwhelm Big Timmy. If he gets a hold of Tim he's done. Fedor is a Sambo champ and would throw Tim down and GNP to a TKO.

tim could if fedor played with him

tim could if he ran backwards the whole time

tim could if he did everything possible not to engage

of course tim could last 2 rounds.......of course, i could win the lottery tomorrow, after being struck by lightning......anything is possible....

tim just needs incentive.....like.....someone took away his belt and he wants it back..or..someone hits him really bloody hard......his last few fights havnt been terribly challenging....


while i dont think that tim is the great fighter he and the UFC make him out to be, i also dont think hes as bad as a lot of people think too

Sylvia is probably one of the most underrated fighters ever. I can see him lasting two 5min rounds with Fedor. However, if it was with PRIDE rules, I am not sure if he could simply because of his cardio.

His recent performances have been boring, but nonetheless, he gets the job done. There are a lot of Arlovski nuthuggers, but Sylvia beat him twice already ...

Prior to his lost to Mir, he also had some sick KO victories.

P.S. I am not, and probably will never be, a Sylvia fan. But he definitely gets mistreated ...

i think tim could last with fedor his height and his boxing abilities would keep him alive if they ever fought.

haha listen i dont kno if uve seen any cro cop fights in the past, but cro cop is not human. he is bred by war and rage. hes an assassin. if uve only seen the fight with sanchez that was nothing compare to what hes capable of. sylvia doesnt have the coordination to beat any top ranked fighters from the pride organization. i give sylvia props tho for having a run like this in the ufc, but hes mediocre. he cant beat fedor and he sure as hell cant beat cro cop.

Although I don't like Tim I think he would actually have a chance. Don't get me wrong I would bet Fedor all the way, but don;t count Tim out to easily. He ain't the champ for nothin.

I think Timmy can last with Fedor.....Fedor is gonna have to respect him as soon as he feels his power...Timmy has KO power without even commiting to a punch and he never over commites to a punch so he is always very composed...i have seen alot of improvment in timmy i dont know why people dis him so much

yeah..he fights not to lose,but you cant deny his skill

im not comparing Tim to Floyd Mayweather,but Mayweather is considered to be the best pound for pound boxer EVER...but alot of people dislike him for the same reason..he likes to win by points not finish fighters even though he can

I don't think Tim would last with Fedor, but then again, there's not a fighter in UFC that could beat Fedor (IMO)

I think he could "sprawl and stall" his way though at least one UFC round. Under PRIDE's 10 min round one, I think he'd go down.

I'm as big a Tim hater as any, but he's got to be the most underrated top 10 fighter in the world.

1 chance in 10, he could beat Fedor. and that's if it went the distance.

after seeing Herring dominated by O'Brien it kinda made Prides HW division seem not as strong as i thought

Agreed, Sylvia is stiil a good( just cautios ) fighter. We never know who beats who till it actually happens. That being said, I think Fedor wins 9 out of 10. Fedor wins By GnP IMO, especially if it's in a cage. I'd take fedor in the 3rd. Good point about 10 minute first round under pride rules, but I have to beleive he would train accordingly as soon as he knew the rules he'd be fighting under. Either way, I think Fedor by 3rd round GnP, but would have a better chance to lose by decision under pride rules. Constant restarts while Fedor was pounding him in the ropes, and the 3 round sytem would be to his advantage in at least survivng the beating.

I think Tim can hang for awhile against Fedor. But realistically how many people in the world can hang with Fedor? But if Fedor does take Tim to the ground and stays in Tim's guard, Tim is big enough to strike from the ground that can cause some hurt to Fedor. And that's a big advantage for Tim because Fedor has never fought anyone who is as big as Tim that is mobile. I would think Fedor would end the fight by submission some how, but then again Tim ground game could be good enough to over come some of it. I think Tim could hang.

Fedor is overrated...he is great,but i hate all those "Fedor is GOD" people....if he were that good he would come out a fights unharmed...there are too many holes in his game..the only true competition Fedor has had is CroCop and Mark Hunt, and they both gave him a beating...the only thing wrong with that is they are both natural kickboxers so Fedor has a huge advantage if it goes down..but with tim he can hold his own in the ground and has good boxing skill...and now that CroCop is in the mix im sure he is learning to kick


its topics like this that really makes me wish UFC really buys Pride...I NEED THESE QUESTIONS ANSWERED!!!!

Hes come out of plenty of fights without a scratch on him, but thats besides the point.

I'm sure Tim would be able to hit him, and he could probably make it out of the first round if he fought smart. Fedor is an extremely smart fighter and is only agressive when it'll serve a purpose, like when he smoked Zulu or Ogawa, so if time fought smart in the first, I'm sure he'd be fine. Eventually he'd slip up though and that would be the end.

I think Fedor is a much better fighter than Tim silvia, but Tim Silvia is an one of the most underrated fighters out there........its too easy to say "he wont last two minutes".........I personally believe Fedor would take the fight down, and pound the crap out if silvia........but you never know what could happen in an mma fight.

In my opinion, mma fans don’t give Silvia enough respect.....Aleksander Emelianenko, Mark Hunt & Sergei Kharitonov are all shown more respect than Silvia.......and he (in my opinion) is as good as (if not better) than them.

"eventually tim will slip up and that would be the end"

why cant it be Fedor who slips up like when Fujita and CroCop rocked him?

Zulu + Ogawa < Tim Sylvia

It could very well be Fedor, but I don't see it happening.

How many fights has Fedor lost because he got careless? None.

How many has Tim lost because he got careless? He got his arm busted in half by Mir for foolishly bullrushing into Mirs guard and he lost to Arlovski when he got counter-punched and ankle locked.

No they're not. MIr was a stud before the injury, and Arlovski still is IMO. I still think Fedor beats him down though.

Man even i could last 2 rounds wiht fedor. Well if he sat across the ring a simply smiled at me. Like thats gonna happen. Bottom line is until we See Fedor fight Tim we dont know. Tim has good striking and reach. He proved he could avoid a shorter grappler in moson. But Fedor is Fedor. No doubt Fedor has beat far better competiton. But Tim is no joke (well may be he is a joke now but he is a good fighter) So this would be a good fight.

So just to make sure I understand this correctly. Tim wouldn't last 2 rounds let alone 2 minutes with a guy that couldn't contain all 5'11 of TK? Fedor makes his name on people being scared of him and I promise you that Tim isn't scared. Tim called Fedor out before and probably will again.

Wait... What? Do you mean Kohsaka? Fedor pounded him into Jell-o!

Have you actually watched the guy's fights?


and I promise you that Tim isn't scared.

I wouldn't expect him to be. I also don't think Sylvia would last two rounds with Fedor in PRIDE. He might in the UFC.
