5ounces of pain apparently has sylvia looking for a fight with Ray mercer on may 30th... Really Tim?

Is this boxing? Ray lost to Kimbo, what makes him think he can beat Tim?

If it is boxing, then that is ok .. MMA and Tim is just looking for a pay day i guess ..

this is rediculous. how can you respect tim sylvia if he doesn't respect himself enough to avoid a circus like this.

On top of the Mercer is like 46 and he is no Randy Couture.

First he wanted to fight Shamrock and now this? Fedor must have really hit him harder than anyone realized. :wacko:

I think that he IS looking for a paycheck.. But is there anything really wrong with that?

Nothing wrong with trying to pay the bills. Maybe he needs to grovel back to Dana and see if he can come back...

Well if no one wants to watch it, how is it going to pay for anything?

Tim should fight Kimbo lol

There you go! On a semi-serious note, does anything think that Kimbo will fight in MMA again?

Well, Tim will get paid and, if no one watches the event, then it's the promotion that will take the loss, not the fighters.

I read the other day on mma weekly that strike force got kimbo and they want to set up kimbo with bob sapp

What a fall from grace.

I'd rather see that than Mercer.

He made 800k for fighting Fedor he shouldn't need to fight Ray mercer.

It almost seems as though doesnt really have any good direction to go with his career anymore. I wonder if he'll go back to Dana?

Well, if this fight happens, Tim should take Mercer down immediately and pound him out. If he stands with Mercer, he may very well get KO'd, and that would be a disaster for his career.

Obviously if you are in the MLB, NFL, or NBA :laugh:

This is a prime example of one of the problems in MMA. Why is this fight even being sanctioned?

That being said, I am pulling for Mercer. He's an old dog, and Kimbo only won because he punked out on standing and banging with Ray like he said he was going to. Well, that and Ray being 45 years old. :laugh:

This is ridiculous. Mercer barely trained to fight Kimbo and only showed up to get paid. Why would this fight be any different? If Tim does this, he's done. Nobody will take him seriously again. He'd be better off fighting some local HW champion than Mercer. At least that would give some MMA fighter a shot at fame and a career boost.

You don't live forever on one paycheck! You do what you can to stir the pot if it gets you a pay check!

please don't tell me this is true. is this really what tim has degraded to?

this matchup is an embarrassment and disgrace to not only MMA but to the human race

I don't understand this. As always, Mercer has a punchers chance, and if he catches Tim with one, and Tim goes down.....he'll be a laughing stock.

Later.

Because he could easily have a paycheck and some decency.

I totally see your point... but it's similar to Kevin Ferguson.. If someone offers the cash.. who is at fault.. the organization or the fighter?

Yes, but Kimbo was never a respected member of the MMA community,
or a UFC Champion.

VERY different.

Somebody who has dignity should try to keep it,
somebody who never had any doesn't care

eh, the point was he could easily do both.

He made almost a million dollars we know about fighting Fedor,
Tim certainly isn't going hungry.

I just think its funny everybody cuts down somebody like Fedor for fighting that giant hong man choi(or something),
but Tim wants to fight an over the hill nobody and people defend him lol

Its a complete joke.

Oh that would be a good fight! I think Tim should fight Alistiar Overeem or CroCop or someone like that! Not Mercer!

Big Tim doesn't claim to be #1 p4p and no one considers him that.

Fedor has a legacy to live up to he should only ever be fighting top 10 HW's.

Tim is slowly and surely throwing his away.

Ya Big Tim needs to get refocused or something, seems like he has lost his fire

que
02-20-2009, 12:21 AM
tim should win, and he should be at the very least a 10-1 favorite

the real question is: if he loses... where does his career go from there? where CAN he go?

rockdawg21
02-20-2009, 12:50 AM
If he loses, he should have to fight Kimbo, or rather, he should just fight Kimbo. IMO, Kimbo has the power to KO Big Tim. I would watch the fight, no doubt it would end in a KO by one of them.

Fedor doesn't claim to be the number 1 p4p fighter either.

in Fact i have never heard Fedor boast about being the best.
