    We all know hes fighting big boring Tim July 19th but to me for some reason it doesnt seem like Fedor has a sure victory this time around

    Anyone else feel the same?

    Yes, I think he sucks. He will lose to Kimbo.

    I do, but not because I'm losing faith in Fedor, but because Tim has a legit chance.

    If Nog didn't have a supernatural chin Tim would still be the champ.

    Dude, doesn't get enough respect.

    He should just pull a Barry Sanders and retire while he's at the top of his game. The loss will come soon.

    agreed. Tim is far better then he gets credit for and is an enormously hard fight for anyone in mma.

    Fedor said in an interview that he thinks Tim is a very good fighter and he is training very hard for that fight. Sylvia's size and power can make anyone look bad, but Fedor is still going to beat him convinsingly.

    He only got boring after the second Arlovski fight. He had some nice fights before then. His fight with Brandon Vera was alrite as well.

    Shit its been a while since I seen the fight. I remember tim pushing him into the cage but still throwing lots of punches. They were pretty weak cause he had back surgery but you could see he was trying.

    Lutter Franklin was good untill they both gassed 3 and a half minutes into the fight. Afterwards it was like watching zombies fight. Lutter was trying to fall on Franklin and Franklin was stumbling around throwing some awkward strikes.
     
  18. what makes you say that?

    I was going to say the same. I like Fedor. He will eventually lose. Just dont want it to be to Tim Sylvia.

    I think his style of striking to setup quick takedowns really nullifies Tims control of the distance which is his biggest strength IMO.
     
  22. you think he'll be able to close on tim with no problem, and force takedowns?

    nog took him down. Randy closed on him. Fedor is more powerful and explosive than either of em. I'm worried that Fedor is gonna get a bad cut again.
     
  24. Randy's takedowns are much better than Fedor's, and nog had to take an assbeating for 2 rounds and just dragged him down. I don't think Fedor would last those two rounds nog did.

    I still think fedor would probably find a way to win, but it's gonna be one of his hardest fights.

    Nog did a doubleleg/trip right at the end of either the first or second round and got side control.

    I wouldn't say Randy's takedowns are MUCH better than Fedors. Who hasn't Fedor been able to take down when he wanted to?
