ufcmania.com is reporting that dana white says vera will most likely fight big time. This is gonna be a great fight, I got Sylvia by second round ko, he will have trouble with vera's aggression but Tim will have too much power for Vera to deal with.

r u joking? Sylvia win? I say Vera 2nd round KO , vera has to much speed for sylvia, and if vera wants to he will take it do the ground, but i say they stand and sylvia's lights are going out... Trust me he will be seeing stars.

I'll be pulling for Vera. This will be his toughest match yet and I think he can get the win using his speed.

Good fight. I hope we see it.

Although it's tough for me to see clearly how their styles will match up, I think a 2nd or 3rd round KO by Syliva is pretty believable. Not that Vera can't win, but Arlovski looked every bit as invincible as Vera, with a bigger frame to boot, just before Tim connected on him.

Brandon Vera held out on his contract, to get more money per fight. The only thing is that Brandon Vera has only fought mid-level fighters, and one out of shape Frank Mir. Let's see if he's worth the money, or if it is just hype. I think Tim Sylvia is going to come back with avengance, hopefully.

Totally agree I think Tim is going to come back as a monster. Vera hasnt impressed me. People say vera is faster than tim, andrei was faster than tim and tim knocked out andrei. Vera is going to get caught prolly the second round, Tim is going to come back for real

Actually it was Andrei getting careless that got him knocked out, not Tim being a better fighter. Even their third fight Arlovski was cruising towards a win (easily taking the first 2 rounds) before he hurt his knee. I'm not sold on Tim being a top fighter who will finish his fights.

Right. Because a fighter that finishes 79% of his fights isn't a finisher.

vera is a great fighter but i think his inexperience with top 10 fighters and ring rust will give sylvia the win via ud

I give this one to Vera. I think that the heavyweight devision has suffered in the past and Sylvia has never fought anyone like Vera(besides Arlovski) Vera has more tools. He is smart. Sylvia fought Gan Mcgee and 5'4" Jeff Monson (not challenging). Coture was his first real test and he failed. He'll never make it back and Vera will prove that.

Hey Sylvia, stick to dancing!

Vera will chop Sylvia down with leg kicks, and eventually score the TKO in the 3rd.

i think sylvia will come with the fire he had before, when he KO'd ricco rodriguez, (and how can i forget cabbage?? haha)......he became the boring fighter that was fightin not to loose when he got the title, he didnt wanna loose it becuase it so important to him, now that he doesnt have it, i think he will be more aggresive........

having said that the HW division has way more talent now, i dont see him makin it to the top with guys like big nog, and cro cop...(if CC was ever to fight sylvia, i think it would go something like CC vs Aleks emelianenko)
