Randy outboxed Tim, and Fedor is a MUCH better striker than Randy.

Before people come charging in here trying to make me eat crow after an improbable upset tomorrow, I do know Tim always has great gameplans and does have a chance to win, especially with the massive amount of ring rust that Fedor will surely have.

Not exactly top five material.
Heavyweight isn't exactly a deep division though, and if we're talking quality of competition then heck, Fedor hasn't done squat in three years. If you say Sylvia's not top 5 then by definition you have to believe that there are at least 5 active HW fighters who have beaten better competition than him. I'm not sure that there are.

Well yeah you did, or didn't answer it properly.

If he isn't top 5, then who is?

If both Fedor and Silva lose tonight......man oh man.....the world of MMA is going to be turned upside down , boards will crash , fanboys will cry and gamblers will lose a lot of $$$ .

I don't think it will actually happen but Irvin clearly has a puncher chance since he has some nasty striking power while Sylvia......well is Sylvia and may use his reach and jab the whole fight and take a decision.

My gf wanted to go see The Dark Knight tonight but i cancelled that because it's MMA all the way baby !!!!!!

I'm trying to convince buddies to order the Affilciton PPV, but it's tough sell with the free UFC card. I'd order it myself, but I ordered Rampage/Griffin and don't want my cable bill to be 100 bucks more expensive at the end of the month.

I'll try to watch it online, but that will be tough trying to avoid spoilers for the fight.
