K-1 super heavyweight Jerome Le Banner talks about his performance at the 2007 K-1 World Grand Prix, his future plans and much more. You don't want to miss what he had to say as he talks about future fights with Mighty Mo and K-1 WGP Champion Semmy Schilt, the possibility of one day fighting in the Octagon and why he thinks it would be a pity if Tim Sylvia became the UFC heavyweight champion again. Don't miss this must read exclusive.

Enjoy mastadon

I would love to see Lebanner in the octogone, but Sylvia is not a guy that you can beat easely like he seem to believe.

It would be wild. I do think him and Tim would be one of the best fights for JLB, since tim's not a wrestler or submission artist. I also don't think he would be strong enough to get JLB on the cage and hold him there. JLB in 4oz gloves...

Calling Sylvia a "consevative mf'er" makes me laugh. Sylvia has finished %75 of his fights. Does Jerome have that kind of percentage?

"They deserve all my effort and I'll always makes the fans pants wet!"

Frogs are so fricking nasty, what a weirdo!

Leave no doubt if Tim did not take him down he would would get ko'd, Tim utilizes his size well and recently does not truely attack unless he is a shoe in, Ricco is a long time ago so it is hard to give him the credit now for it.

yea if tim tired to stand with him he would get messed up, sorry i dont think most fighters in the ufc could stand with any of the top-tier K-1 fighters (cro-cop doesnt count since he started in K-1) JLB would kill tim, and tim has stated before that he could KO JLB, MMA stand up is no where close to K-1

Thats in K-1. There are few records more impressive, for sheer number of finishes, and finishes against the best of the best. Jerome is a machine.

He still isn't finishing 75% of his fights. He's had 89 fights and has finished 59. That means 30 went to secision. 30 fights going to decision out of 89 isn't to close to a 75% percent finish rate. I'd love to see him in MMA.

maybe you didnt look close enough, he has won 73 out of 89 fights, out of those 73 fights 59 fights were finishes.... so only 14 fights went to decision...i think JLB would maul Sylvia with ease

I dont belive that Sylvia could stand with him at all.. BUT! as a grappler myself... I must ask; does LeBanner train on the ground?
If not.. STFU
