    I've noticed that both Tim Sylvia and Josh Burkman have given themselves this title.

    Am I the only one who finds this ironic? Sylvia gets ton of hate on the internet and Josh Burkman is generally pretty cocky. He also got his ass whooped by Jon Fitch from what I've read.

    Agreed, hopefully Arlovski finishes him quick again. People proclaiming themselves "the peoples champ" is pretty sad. If you look at some of the most popular fighters, eg. royce gracie, sakuraba, couture. they did their talking in the ring - plus they generally tried to avoid trash talk and were respectful to all their opponents.

    Sylvia is going to get owned. Arlovski is an animal and will eat him alive.

    or maybe it's just cuz i like his vampire mouth guard. :dunno:

    And you know this how? :rolleyes: Gotta love the folks who talk shit with opinions some dork on Sherdog spouted. Tim is one of the coolest and most down to earth fighters I know....sure he's country but Matt Hughes is just as bad if not worse. Every time he comes in he turns off Jeremy's rock and puts on Hank Jr, "A country boy can survive" :rofl: Tim loves hunting and dogs so that's what he likes to talk about. I'm sure if you like a cock in the ass, that's what you would talk about as well.

    Now Burkman OTOH is a complete tool. Can't stand the guy. Cocky assclown who beats up some people here locally and thinks he's ready for the belt. I'm glad Jeremy did what he did....Josh deserved all 58 seconds of that and what happened afterwards.

    Wow...and meeting him once and reading an interview makes him "the biggest tool/redneck on earth". :rolleyes:

    How is it a cockrider to support the guys at my gym? Hmmmmmm....I thought that's what teams do, wow...guess supporting your team is now considered riding someone's nuts??? News to me......drive through.

    I hope to see some better technique from Sylvia in the future. Eventually he’ll run across more and more large fighters with a ground game. Then he won’t be nearly as dominating as he was in the past.

    I like that Atmosphere,

    never thought about that, I agree though. I think AA is in a whole nother class then Sylvia. If Sylvia was 5'10 he would be getting his ass beat into the ground by anyone. The fact that he is the size of a circus clown who can only throw jabs and haymakers makes him tough to some people I guess. Again though, we will see the result in 1 day.


    and Ghostz, that's sweet that you train with him, I can understand your support but rationalizing the guy away from being an EGOTISTICAL TOOLBOX because he likes Dogs and Hunting is obsurd.
    How many times do you need to see a rock to know it is a rock? If you come back later will it have turned into something else? No it is a rock, and Sylvia has nothing but rocks in his heads, I find it funny you try say to someone that when they meet a guy, he is not really what he appears and shows he is lol.
    Sylvia is done after tonight, at least his title shots are done but I am sure he will be around. The people that can get over the "oooh's" and "ahhh's" of his size see he is no real fighter, just like Brad Imes your buddy too.
    Tim's only take down defense is his sheer size. He sucks, least qualified UFC fighter today. There just isn't enough Talent in the heavyweight class right now so that's why he still looks like he can compete.
