    that's the consensus - not surprising Sylvia would say that. Dana's put him down while Fedor finished him quickly. I think Sylvia could beat everyone in the UFC except for Lesnar (and maybe Shane and possibly Gonzaga). I think he'd beat Nog or Couture in a rematch.

    I think Couture has the best chance of beating Fedor (although not a big one).

    I think sylvia would have some trouble against the wrestlers velasquez and carwin. Of course we need to see more out of them but stylistically they match up well.

    Maybe but he really is hard to take down.

    Remember Munson is a D1 wrestler who won matches in the NCAAs and has competed at the highest levels in submission wrestling (he went 5 rounds with him). Nog and Ricco also have decent takedowns and some say his back really was in bad shape when he lost to Randy.

    Monson was just so much shorter than Sylva. Monson will use more upper body trips and drag the person to the mat. He could not do that against Sylvia.

    Carwin is significantly bigger 6'3 265 and he was also a national champion wrestler who has an explosive double so i cant see sylvia keeping it on feet.

    Velasquez is also a level higher than monson, he is much quicker than sylvia and his striking should open up his takedown attempts.

    PJ - are the fights starting soon? I need to go to church at 4pm, but I'm hoping to watch them right after.

    Wow, this interview is now pretty comical. Somehow Fedor is losing his mystique.
