the division is too stacked he needs to win in spectacular fashion against a big names like Vera, Crocop, big nog etc for me to even reconsider him to be in title contention

He's boring enough and when he was decent at the ebginning of his career he took steroids when he actually use to stop peple his first 20 fights and then tested positve after the ricco fight....

I say KO Vera, and then KO the winner of Hardnock/Mir and and then fight Heath Herring or even a big name like CC...because KO's will get you places definitly...

Whether you think he deserve a shot or not he will be fighting Brandon Vera next and will be giving any chance of a title shot to him after he gets KOed by Brandon

They sent GSP in against Kos (partly because he asked for it), why should Sylvia be given a break?

Near the end of his title reign he was fighting not to lose. Put him in the ring against someone where he'll have to fight for his life and to win, not just to not lose.

If sylvia beats vera, he should fight noguiera or GG before he gets another shot at his old title !!!

Sylvia vs vera
Noguiera vs gonzaga
Crocop vs arlovski
Barnet vs monsoon

... Then fedor vs couture
If fedor doesnt come to the ufc then whoever provails above should have a mini elimination process before the winner gets a title shot against couture.

Vera is the baddest man in that weight class.. As long as Fedor stays gone Vera will march to the top...

They should make him keep fighting Arlovski on the under cards.

This isn't even going to be a relevent question after Brandon Vera runs through him.

I would love to see Tim fight GG after he looses to vera, just for the fun of the fight, GG would ruin him.
