Its normally randy who is the under dog, even against mike van arsdale randy was tipped to loose. I wonder if randy being dubbed favourite is a bad thing ?
He normally surprises the odds when an under dog.

Sherdog made a poll. randy was favourite, cotoure is favourite on ufc website and on mma weekly. I am yet to see a fight poll where silvia is favourite.

Of course Randy is going to be the favorite in any user poll; Randy is loved by MMA fans everywhere and Tim is loathed by most fans. You can't take any poll like that seriously to gather who is the favorite to actually win the fight. Those polls are little more then popularity contests.

First off Randy is not the favourite, and Big Timmy will prob. KO him because of his reach and he will keep Randy away.

I might not be able to resist putting $10 or so bucks on Randy.

Randy is the classiest fighter MMA has ever seen. But his chances on winning are slim to none and slim just left town. I take nothing away from Randy. He is all heart. But he left the heaveyweight dividion because Josh and Ricco were just to much for him.

Now he's gonna fight someone who's 6'8" and weighs 265??? If he had such problems taking Chuck down, how is he gonna take Tim down? He's gotta get in a clinch with Tim. He's gotta do dirty boxing and how the hell can Randy clinch and dirty box with someone who is 6'8"?

I'll be rooting for Randy, I just hate seeing this. I hope it isn't the money that is bringing him back. He had trouble with Van Arsdale and Chuck hurt him bad.

Im with you there, i hope it wasnt the money. People are also saying he's been brought back to loose to tim like shamrock/franklin... to boost silvias mma status as the champ. So many old skool mma fighters come out of retierment and loose horribly, but randy retiered, had a world class grappling match and stayed in the gym, most fighters get 1 fight a year these days due to the amount of fighters out there on the big screen, theres not enough room. for me, randy hasnt really retiered. best of luck to him, i know he's trainimg with bas rutten, he's got a good shot against big tim.

This is so hard to call. On paper, Tim is going to destroy Randy, but it strikes me as odd that the three top guys from the same fight team (Randy, Lindland, and Henderson) all moved up a weight class or two to fight extremely difficult opponents. Either they have something up their sleeves, or they all have a death wish.

Or they could have balls of steel. Thats my thought. There are all olympic level wrestlers and beyond that All have been Top 5 in the world in MMA at one point 2 of them even higher than that.
I think these guys are just tough as shit and see a Fight has just another day at the office. Go in get paid and beat the living crap outta someone. Although all 3 are the underdogs going into their next bouts.
These guys are just tough as nails. Period.

Balls of steel to any american wrestler who's willing to get k.o'd by a 6'8" giant.

Randy is loved by all....and he has heart and all,but he is just too old

not bashing the guy,but its true...at this age his muscles are just not as strong anymore....and no matter what pace the fight takes i dont see Sylvia gassing before Randy
