this is decent match imo.
finally tim takes a forward step against a credible opponent. it's a tough fight but i favor tim provided he's in reasonable shape.

This would have been an interesting match like 4 or 5 years ago. Neither man can beat a top 10 heavyweight today. Given that one of these guys was a UFC champion and the other a former UFC title contender, I find it hard to believe that either guy will take pride in being a champ for whatever organization this is.

As for the fight, I guess it's pretty even. Both wanna stand and bang, neither have good ground games or want to go to the ground. I can't really call it. I might catch the fight on mmalinker or somethign like that, but I won't be paying for it

I am not so sure about Tim being a lock here. Buentello has prety decent strikes and power is the last to go. Unless Tim employs the Kongo stategy against Paul and take him down time after time, I think Timmah might go nighty night!

This should be a great fight. I expect a stand up war.

Like both guys but rooting for Sylvia more once again. I'm hoping he gets this semi legit win and then after a couple more they let him come back to the UFC and start him off against someone like Yvel or Nelson or some other veteran,. Or even Stefan Struve that would be hilarious
