Vera by R3 KO!

Tim will be limping after this fight... if he's walking at all.

This is the beginning of the end for Tim.

The rise of the Vera has begun!

There is no way Tim Sylvia loses this fight if he has not injuries coming into the fight. I do not think that it will be a close fight either.

Why does everybody hate Tim so much?! We are talking about a guy who had his arm broken because he didn't tap in an arm bar. We are talking about a guy who beat Arlovski twice, dominated Monson, and didn't quit for 25 minutes with Couture beating the **** out of him. I will restate the point that Tim was seriously hurt going into that fight.

Vera is yet to fight a real contender, and the only reason that internet fanbois salivate about the guy is because he sports a magical "undefeated" record. He's only had 9 pro fights, for crying out loud!

I don't think Vera deserves to fight Tim, they should have let AA kick his ass first. The only way Vera can win the fight is if Tim is not fully recovered from his spine surgery.

You all give Sylvia too little credit, you have to remember, he has had some pretty impressive victories, yes his last few fights have been pretty boring but I would not be in the least bit surprised to see him knock out Vera in convincing fashion. Vera is over hyped and we have all seen what has happened to over-hyped fighters as of late.

I agree. Except with the AA fighting Vera first. I still think AA is a better fighter than Tim. Either way, I think Tim is going to smash Vera.
