    I see your point but either way are they gonna jump him up to whatever once he fights florian? You have to start him out somewhere to move him up or down.

    no hunt is better then sylvia, if sylvia landed a punch on hunt and hunt just looked at him, sylvia would probably have his corner throw in the towel. neither is a ground guy and sylvia could not KO hunt, sort of limits his game I think

    I think Syvlia is probably much better on the ground, despite the fact that we haven't seen much at all of his ground game yet

    yeah have you ever seen a camel on his back....I havent but, thats what I think sylvia would look like, long legged knock knees bastard.

    but given he is fighting monsoon, you are probably right that he has been training on the ground a lot.

    i think monsons height might give him the advantge because sylivas legs are on his eye level :rofl: if he can dodge/block his punches he'll have a good chance of taking him down

    The little bastard keeps winning fights.

    In the HW Im gonna get flamed for this and I hate saying it also but its been a while since Fedor has fought and Im suprised he is still ranked #1.

    Hunt vs Sylvia is a no brainer Hunt will knock him out.

    agreed, watching there fights Hunt has a chin of steel. Arlovski knocked Sylvia to the ground with out too much effort, then he got knocked just as easily lol

    I'd agree Hunt beats Sylvia on his feet via kchopping him down with kicks. Sylvia is going to be better on the ground. I'd like to see Sylvia fight Aleks.

    I don't really like that "big smelly skunk" (Rampage's words) Lindland, but I think he deserves to be fighting big names in his weight class.
