is it just me or does Tim like to be hated??

he keeps saying "i dont know what i have to do to get people's respect"

and at the same time he keeps talking trash about people..."im gonna knock your ass out".(both to Brandon vera and Randy)

why the hell would he disrespect Randy like that? Randy has said nothing but good stuff about him when commentating......i dunno,but insulting Randy and kicking him while he's down(old age..coming back form 2 ko's) is pretty low by Tim

I think his comments toward randy were caused due to the fact that tim actually had alot of respect towards randy and kinda looked up to him, all of a sudden randy is criticising tims fight, he feels a little betrayed, then again sometimes big tim just cant shut his mouth

Tim hates to be hated. He honestly doesn't know what to do to earn the fans respect. I think part of the lack of respect for Tim is that he is not a very aggresive fighter, and doesn't have a very aggresive personality - essentially he is boring. So maybe TIm is trying to redefine who he is by talking a little trash etc. Look at Tito - it's a love em or hate em thing. But that's what makes him exciting. If Tim somehow becomes a badass then he might get people excited about him. However its kind of hard to change things once people already have stereotyped you.

i agree...tim f$cked up...he cant do anything different anymore since everyone has already judged him
when he beat arlovski the second time and was crying after the fight...i dont know..i just didnt feel it.....i kinda thought he was faking it to get people to like him,which made me hate him even more!

poor timmy.....I hope he gets KTFO gentley

I don't think Tim likes being hated. I really don't think anyone does. I think Tim is being genuine when it came to him crying when he won the belt. He has been through alot to regain that title. He beat a guy twice in a row that should of beaten him 9 out of 10 times. I;m not a big fan of Tim and I think his comments on Randy are quite just really. He did get beat twice by Chuck and then thinks he can take on Tim. There's nothing wrong with that logic. Tim should feel comfortabe that he should win a fight no matter who he is facing. Randy's comments bothered him, and that's fine he has that right and has the right to say what he wants back. I just think Tim rubs people the wrong way because he is isn't what everyone wants him to be.....Arvloski.....

Also, we can't leave out the overwhelming possibility that he is hyping the fight. Randy's my all-time favorite fighter, but even I think he's a huge underdog in this case.

I dont see why everyone hates on this guy the guy is an awesome fighter I think its sick that he came back from the roids and got the title back that proved alot.So his last two fights he was a lil cautious he was fighting Jeff Monson one of the best grapplers out there Tim is not known for his grappling would you wanna make a mistake against a guy like Monson?Tim's sprawl was awesome that night.

Im probably gonna get flamed for this,

For some reason that I just can't point out just really makes me dislike Tim Silvia. Maybe its the way he talks, his fight style, his attitude, I just can't pin point why I dislike the guy.

Give me REASONS PEOPLE!!! lol

BWHAHAHAAHHA! oh my god i can't stop laughing.

Sylvia is just a big goofy looking boring striker, thats why a lot of people don't like him. As oppossed to Arlovski who was a huge and absolutely shredded exciting striker with good looks.

That is all.

Because he's not an awesome fighter; he's a cookie cutter Miletich fighter, medicore at best and has fought medicore fighters his entire career with few exceptions. 'It's sick he came back from 'roids'? You speak as if he had cancer or some shit, instead of being caught abusing a preformance enhancing drug, as far as I'm concerned they shouldn't even be letting him fight professionally. Also saying Monson is one of the best grapplers out there is laughable, espeically considering his preformance against Tim (of all people) that night.

Why should you like Randy? Because he's a humble fighter with class, something Tim just doesn't seem to be able to grasp, and probably never will.
