Top ranked heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko (Pictures) will fight Tim Sylvia (Pictures) on July 19. The Russian mixed martial arts champion confirmed the bout to Sherdog.com on Tuesday.

"[Sylvia] is a good fighter, a strong fighter, the former UFC heavyweight champion, which is important," Emelianenko said via telephone from Stary Oskol, Russia. "I am looking forward to fighting him and training hard for this fight."

Just read this as well. This is going to be a great fight. Big Tim has been talking smack about Fedor for a long time. I am excited to see Fedor fight someone considered to be upper tier comp.

Fedor will wreck him! It will be just like Fedor's last fight since IMO Tim's sub defnese isn't that much better then Choi's and Fedor has fought better strikers(Cro Cop).

Fedor 1st Round sub!!! I'm excited Fedor's finally fighting a top 10! Can't wait!

Fedor will take him down in the second round, and sub him.

I see Fedor beating him standing, beating him clinches, and finally taking him down to apply the aforementioned wreckage.

Fedor is just scared of Big Nog so he has to fight a UFC wash out. God I am so sick of this fat crazy russian ducking the UFC fighters. Seriously though I hope all the Fedor hate will cease now. He is the GOAT!!!

Fedor 1st rnd arm bar
Well Tim was never a top 5 fighter. Fedor had "special help" when he beat Nog in Japan. The Yakuza made Nog lose. Nog/UFC fighter X would maul Fedor in a cage with elbows. Whatever it is, it will insult my intellect.

Fedor fighting a top ten fighter? What is this?!
Awesome. I see Fedor winning by absolute destruction.

Obviously this is a good match up for Fedor. I just don't see Tim Sylvia beating Fedor.

I'm not a Tim Fan, but...

I think it's a bad match up for Fedor.

Tim has:

Good T/D defense
Good Sub defense
Ability to go 5 rounds
35 lbs on Fedor
8 inches on Fedor
Fedor has never ko'ed anyone standing
Tim has a big reach advantage


I call Tim by boring decision.

Happy to see him take a top fight. FE should win handily, but it's better than anything he's done in years.
