    maybe he could beat Justin Willis ,
    everyone else from that list would stop Tim.

    He had a jab and could stick to a gameplan so he'd still be floating in that 10-15 range in today's division.

    His most difficult fights on that list would be DC, Blaydes and Hunt but i think he has a good chance beating everyone else.

    With USADA around Sylvia gets rekt against any top 5 middleweight and 90% of LHWs, probably only has a lucky punch chance in HW.

    Tim is one of the worst and weakest champ in ufc history. He would be lucky to crack top 8

    He also beat prime Ricco, young Ben Rothwell, Assuerio Silva, Mike Whitehead 2x, Cabbage, Gan McGee, Tra Telligman, Jeff Monson, and others

    The head kick KO over Tra was scary. Many thought Tra was dead.

    I think Timmeh competes with any HW on the roster today. Not because he was special, though I think his legacy is underappreciated. It's just that today's HW roster sucks ass. Not bashing, but it is what it is.

    I remember Mercer got the crap kicked out of him by Kimbo in an event shortly before that one.

    Prime Ricco would be trouble for anyone in the hw division. Especially the 02-03 Ricco who beat Randy and arguably defeated Nog in Pride..
