Tim held the belt twice and is in a tie for most ufc hw title defenses.

I’m not a fan of his fights… and he used his advantages (size and reach) to his advantage to safely win… BUT

To become UFC champion takes a lot of hard work and determination. Sylvia didn’t just get there by being big. He may not be the most athletic or graceful or explosive fighter ever, but he was a UFC champion and he’s had the courage to step into the cage/ring many times. He may not be your favourite fighter but he’s still deserving of respect. I’ve never really understood why MMA fans are so vindictive (and I myself have sometimes been guilty of this).
MMA training is not easy. Those of you who have done wrestling, boxing or BJJ know this. I generally give respect to any and all fighters.

Bruno, do you ever get tired of all the hate?

Another example of a pudgy but successful fighter was Penn, but in his case, his cardio was an issue.

The problem for Sylvia is that he is naturally a Super HW… being a super HW may be his natural weight, but it’s not really healthy. Too much work on his heart. When he fought in UFC, he had to manage his weight/diet, and keep himself under 300.

I would like to see Ishii fight in the UFC. That would be exciting. His ground game is obviously excellent, his takedowns are strong, and his punching could develop. I imagine he hits hard.

But just to reiterate what JoeDog was saying… don’t read too much into physique. Looking pudgy and being out of shape are not always one and the same. Some people just naturally carry more fat, even when they are in great shape (Cain Velasquez is the perfect example of this)

He can barely hold his own weight up which is why he has gained so much because the guys practically crippled. Tummy looks like he is 60 already. Time to hang it up Tim. You are just taking on more and more damage every time you fight.

Tiiiiimmmmmmmmbbbbbbeeeeeeeerrrrr actually looked better than he did in some of his latest appearances, but he is at his level. He can’t really join the UFC. He could go to Bellator, though. Their HW division is by far their weakest.

Good to see you healthy and back in action, Bruno!

Fat jiggly people can have decent cardio fitness and good skills. In fact, it seems that the best heavyweights in MMA are never ripped. Valasquez is anything but lean. Fedor was down right porky. Even A. Silva has a hint of extra adipose. All that said, Tim Sylvia is a fat knock-kneed slob without skill or cardio. His reign as UFC champ must be an embarrassment to the organization. He is no match for any current UFC HW fighter on the roster.

I would like to see Ishii in the ufc MW or LHW divison

Now maybe all the Tim Sylvia brown starfish lickers will realize how ignorant they all sound when they say that they feel that Tim should get another shot in the UFC. Morons!

No wonder Dana didn’t give this guy a chance to even be on one of the UFC prelims. You spend most of your time in the gym, how can you look like that?
