It really makes me laugh seeing people trying to mock Tim. He fought AA when he looked unstoppable and then again even though AA beat Tim already and looked better with every fight after, Ricco when he looked unstoppable and was on an 11 fight streak, Monson when he was on a 16 fight win steak, an unbeaten Brandon Vera. Then he fought an on top of his game Fedor. Hes fought a whos who of HWs.

Question his talent all you want, but trying to mock him for who he fights is plain stupid and disrespectful. How about you step in the cage with the best p4p fighter in the world, then come on the internet and start mocking Tim, and i might not laugh at you quite so much.

I think you need to read my post again. I know he's faced tough competition. I mocked the fact that he actually called out Ken Shamrock...thats all. Relax.

C'mon, you obviously started the thread to give people an exuse to have their say on Tim, otherwise you wouldnt of started a thread that was already created a couple of hours ago. Anyways, my response was more directed at the comment below yours talking about Tim still needing to earn respect. I guess fighting the best competition available to you all your career doesnt get you respect anymore.......

why in the hell would sylvia call out ken shamrock? he has nothing to gain from beating shamrock these days. maybe 5-10 years ago i could see but not now.

This would probably be a pretty big fight in Japan. I'm not a huge fan of Big Tim, but I don't know why he would take this fight. What good would it do for Tim to destroy Shamrock (which is exactly what will happen)?

He could build a sweet career fighting legends years past their prime. After he beats Ken, he could fight Sakuraba, or Don Frye, or Dan Severn, etc. How about a mega fight between Sylvia and Royce Gracie? A true legends match!

He's on the road to being the future YAMMA heavyweight champion.

Tim's got this aura about him that make Japanese people love him and well, Ken got tooled by Sakuraba so it's gonna be a pretty good fight marketing wise

he will have a big paycheck to gain because known HWs make top dollar. still though im surprised that ken is the guy he wants but he needs to build himself up a little i guess and sadly ken is a W for just about every solid HW these days.

I am no Big Tim fan But more and more I find myself defending him. I saw him fight Randy at 68 and the Booing for Tim was unreal. I will never Boo a fighter unless he pulls something like Coleman or fights like Starnes. Tim is Ugly and wins fights with his size and for some reason gets shit on for it an it is not right.

Now I didn;t read the article but I see no reason for him to call out Shamrock unless Ken was talking himself. Tim is lightyears better then Ken.

I'm not mocking Shamrock or Tim. I find the fact that Tim called out Ken Shamrock is hilarious BECAUSE of the fact that Tim is still a top hw whether people like it or not and for a guy of his calibre to call out a guy who is way past his prime and hasn't won a fight in close to 5 years, but is still a legend none the less whether people like it or not, is mockable. I'm sorry, but if BJ Penn called out Andy Wang, or if Anderson Silva called out Rory Singer, they'd get the exact same response. So deal with it.

these guys have no business fighting each other
Shamrock should fight some one like James Thomson or Travis Fulton
Meanwhile Tim Should fight someone like Overreem,Fugita,or Semmy

These guys are on two different levels.There is no need for this match up~!

I think it would make more sense calling out Dan Severn than Ken Shamrock. IMO you don't call guys out for a paycheque. You call them out because you have something to prove. I don't see how Time Sylvia has anythign to prove against Ken unless Ken said something about him critical. I don't get this because it just makes Sylvia look like he wants an easy win.

Agreed! i can't see any reason for him to call out Ken. It should be a easy win since he's washed up.

This thread is hillarious... Settle down dudes...

I agree with everyone that's said "Tim has nothing to gain from this fight"...

It might be a good fight but If he's doing it because he thinks it's an "easy win" I hope he gets leg-locked for his troubles...

Tim wants the spotlight, with the spotlight comes us. Tim is always complaining that nobody ever takes him serious, no ******* kidding Tim. You are calling out Ken Shamrock. Time to hang up the gloves, or move on from Pat's camp. They are a dying breed.

He just took on Fedor and Nog, he earned a washed up can so he can get a W.

He just fought the number 1 and 2 heavyweights in the world and lost. It makes absolutely no sense for him to be fighting a top guy at this point. Who else looses 3/4 fights, then goes on to fight another guy at the top of the division??? Id still be willing to bet any money i have Tim would accept a fight with any top 10 guy if it was offered to him, but when youve fought the guys Tim has, most of the time when his opponents are in the forms of their lives, you can afford to take a break every once in a while.
