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
