Defiantly worth a watch. Tim wants a few more fights under his belt before he fights Fedor again, says UFC and Affliction treat their fighters completely different.

I'm glad he doesn't like Ricco. It almost makes me like him. Almost.

He shouldn't fight Barnett.

He should fight one of the other heavyweights who lost the same night he did.

Best case scenario is he never fights on television again.

I think that Tim was star-struck coming into the ring. If they ever fight again, it will go much differently

yea if the fight again, i'd say Tim lasts more than 36 secs, but not more 40 secs

Dont agree with saying he should fight one of the losers that night, even on a loss Sylvia is still the highest caliber opponent for Barnett, if not Sylvia Barnett would end up fighting a guy worse. Unless that is Aleks can fight Barnett again, but with the recent health issue i doubt he'll be available by oct.

Of course there is stuff he'd like to do differently like not get knocked down and subbed in under a minute......but I think Fedor proved who the better fighter is and my personal opinion is Tim doesn't want another piece of Fedor after he just got embarrassed.

Tim's a great fighter and people give him a lot of crap for being "boring" and what not but he's actually a top guy.....the problem is he has the personality of toadstool. I think ever since he won the belt back in the UFC he went into the mode of " I can't loose this belt" and went on to become the Tim that fought Monson. Couture really didn't let him get any offense...... Vera broke his hand and Tim never seemed to want to finish that fight.....He got all the offense he could handle against Nog and got put away when he got to aggressive.....and then this fight..... I just think Tim must be very frustrated because he doesn't know a way to be liked by the fans and still win.....good luck to him but I think he should treat the UFC with a little more respect than he did in this interview they were the ones that made him a star to begin with.

I was ecstatic that Tim was done the way he was. I'm happy that a 6 foot nothing guy, came in and torched his a@% in 36 secs. Because if anybody has an advantage over anyone in this sport, it's the tall and heavy boys in the HW division, that aren't disabled by lack of athleticism or agility. He's believed that he was the man ever since he won the belt. I always remember when I read this interview where Sylvia said something along the lines..."Yeah, when I was champ, I had sex with the belt on. If she said take it off, I'd tell it stays, or she could go." Made me think he'd a had sex with himself, with the belt on, when she did leave. Anyways,the guy is a goon. Barnett would be a good fight and I'd like to see that one. Fedor would do the same thing in a rematch and I honestly, am really hoping we see another Arlovski fight, I mean best of five anyone?

Tim saying he wants Fedor again after a few more fight...lol! Come on Tim the end result would be the same. You getting knocked out in less that a minute. Which kind of dissapoints me. I thought Tim would give Fedor a better fight.

I didn't think Tim had three minutes worth of anything to say. But I think he is definitely right that more fighters are going to go free-agency.....

Good stuff. I have always liked Tim.
People dislike him for virtually no reason.
I would say that with Tim's loss to Fedor and Barnett's win over Rizzo...Tim and Josh switch 4th and 5th in the Heavy rankings.
1. Fedor, 2. Big Nog, 3. Couture, 4. Barnett, 5. Silvia.
Silvia is a great fighter, top 5 and should be a huge draw anywhere.
The detractors can go to......whatever.

haha. My favorite part of that interview was the kid underneath in the messages asking what was said in the interview because he had no sound on his computer and some guy responding by writing:

"He is basically calling out Fedor by saying he got lucky. He said the factthat he got paid more confirms he is a better fighter. In the interview he referred to Fedor as the titty master on account of his slightly portly torso."


Funny stuff. Interview was interesting. He asked okay questions but there were obvious follow ups he missed like the ones about UFC and affliciton differences. That's what people like to hear details....but he asked one question and moved on. Needs some journalism 101. ;)
