    I don't understand how anyone could think that Monson can't get it to the ground. Sylvia's arms aren't fifteen fucking feet long. Monson makes Sylvia look out of shape.

    IF Monson gets Sylvia down, he'll tap him quick. Sylvia is not good on the ground; Monson has subbed multiple black belts. Sylvia will look lost.

    If Monson doesn't get Sylvia down, he's going to look terrible trying to box with someone a foot taller than him.
    Dont forget ADCC Champion.

    Monson should totally use Minowa's forward roll to low single from the Giant Silva fight. That would rock.

    Haha. Under UFC rules, he wouldn't have to risk getting kicked there either. Monson doesn't strike me as someone who would do a somersault in a fight, though.

    Tim Sylvia makes Tim Sylvia look out of shape.

    I think tim sylvia's stand-up is extremely overrated, it's just his freakish reach against guys who are gunshy to commit that sylvia picks apart. I think a really aggressive wrestler who could pressure sylvia could really take him apart. I think if monson comes out and puts the pressure on, he can beat sylvia. I think if monson comes out gunshy, he'll get KOed.

    If I bet this, I'd bet monson, on the odds.

    But then, if I was a good sports better, I'd be typing this on a much nicer computer.

    I actually thought he looked to be in much better shape than he ever has during his last bout with Arlovski.


    If he hesitates too much, I don't think Monson will get KOed, just lose to a unanimous decision like Arlovski did.
