    Poor technical fighters don't win by jabbing and controlling distance. They throw no jabs, let shorter opponent get inside, get taken down, and don't get back up.

    You certainly can criticize him for being boring, because he doesn't go for the KO in every fight, but he definitely is skilled enough to get the KO without landing a lucky, wild haymaker. We're not talking about Bob Sapp.

    Since the world revolves around me, what I've said is:

    The problem is that Sylvia's fighting appears to be 90% physical attributes, and that aesthetically his fighting is painful to watch.

    See, I get the impression a lot of people didn't really watch the monson fight. They both fought pretty much the whole time, and they bounced up and down a ton. For me it's cool to see someone keep to their game - the better fighter is the one who better asserts reality in the ring.

    Tim pulled Monson into his game, and defeated monson's attempts to pull Tim into his. That's what all winning fighters do.

    The milletech martial art style may be the very anti xma - all go, no show - and I don't find Tim to be a font of charisma, but neither is the wave then downs the surfer or length of track a runner covers. Tim sylvia is the test no one can pass, right now. Crocop's got the best chance - I would even say he'll go into their fight a favorite - but he's not THAT BIG of one. And I'm a fan of his, as well.
