I can't wait to watch UFC 69, am i right that it is going to air on March 3? I would definitely shout for Randy Couture. I'm pretty sure he's going to kick Sylvia's ass. I know he is still physically capable to challenge Tim.

Well, Pride FC rules has the kneeing, etc. BUT it doesn't happen a huge amount of the time. A lot of the Pride FC I've seen, and I could be wrong, but a lot of standup fighting is involved. And the referees standup opponents much faster than they do in the UFC for zero activity. Pride seems to not care if you are moving around on the ground, you must either be trying for a lock or hitting the hell outta that person. Trying to gain position has no bearing, at least from the large amount of shows I've seen here in the states.

Fighters like Wanderlei Silva would probably dominate UFC fighters. I mean, I saw Liddell get knocked out by a #6 ranked fighter on a K-1 or Pride show once. He was slow compared to the other fighters. I think it'd be interesting to go to Pride rules if UFC went to London, be a wakeup call. It would be even more interesting to mix in Pride fighters.

I'd love to see Wanderlei vs. Tim Sylvia, and see the destruction of the UFC champion.

Aside from the stand-up game, they do knee a lot in PFC when they're on the ground in the side-mount position. I've seen several matches end where an opponent could not intelligently defend knees to the head in the side-mount.

It seems many people dislike Tim Sylvia, I am one of them. If Sylvia loses I hope Mirko Cro Cop still gets the chance to crush him :D

The winner of this fight gets to lose his belt to Cro Cop. :whistle:

Kidding.

I'm anticipating this match too because I have no idea who will win.

Tim will win easy, 1st or 2nd round via TKO or KO. As for "Cro Cop" I think Tim stands a much better chance than people are giving him credit for, it will at least be competitive. :shiftyninja:

What a PPV!!!

Matt Hughes needed a decision but it seemed he was in control for the fight...Rich Franklin got the job done suprised me seeing the size of McDonald and Couture!!! he just owns big time...first punch was a fricking knockdown of Silvia but credit to Tim he survived but the judges had it NEW WORLD CHAMPION!!! and Tim's eye looked stuffed up :|

I don't get all the Joe Rogan bashing? I mean he ain't that bad, and he knows a lot more than Goldberg does about the sport!

"I love Joe Rogan, he is amazing."

WTF??

He is the biggest tool in history.

He actually said "ownage" and "owned" like a 10 year old Internet fanboy. What a pathetic loser.

Woah... that's a big difference between fighters! Is there a "winning bonus"?

Matt Hughes ? $150,000 ($75,000 to show, $75,000 to win)

Don't forget the numbers don't show other bonuses (Fight of the night, Knockout of the night, Submission of the night, etc.) or the gate & PPV percentage that some top fighters get, nor personal sponsorships.
