Tim Sylvia’s been here before, in the role no fighter wants to be in. And while “comeback” is a dirty word because it means you’re returning from a loss, serious injury, some other mishap, or a combination of all of the above, those who do return in successful fashion find glory first of all, and sometimes they even find redemption.

I think Tim will come out hard but it'll fall short of beating Vera.

Even though I just saw Brandon Vera in person this weekend, I think that it will be a long night for him. I see Tim taking this one.

Tim will have to be the one pushing the pace if he wants to win this fight, but i think Vera will be to quick for him......But all it takes is one punch to end a fight from Sylvia so this one could go eigther way.....

Anyone notice that Sylvia is better fighter when he is NOT the champion. Look at fights versus Ricco, Arlovski II, Silva, Telligman.

Wow...I thought I was the only one going for Tim on this one. There are so many Vera Huggers out there (He is very good) that I thought everyone would forget how very nasty of a fighter Tim could be. I love seeing fans who know their sh!t!!!
