    I noticed a interesting pattern on Timmy's record
    Timmy got stopped 5(five) times within 1 minute of the fight
    Frank Mir-50 seconds
    Andrei Arlovski-47 seconds
    Fedor Emelianenko-36 seconds
    Ray Mercer-9 seconds
    Abe Wagner-32 seconds

    I don't think anyone else lost so many times under 1 minute
    Timmy bless

    So cringe when he tried to box with Mercer.

    I truly believe that if Sylvia stayed in shape and didn't burn bridges, he would of been one of the greats.

    Takanori Gomi almost managed to beat that in his last 6 fights.

    He was never the same after the third AA fight, started fighting not to lose and it really showed. He was alot more timid and really started to have problems with guys who came straight at him. If you sat back and let him throw that telphone pole jab at you he would eventually put you on your ass but stopped being able to handle pressure. Randy really exposed that aspect.

    It is extremely rare that straight Achilles lock finishes a MMA fight in major event. I can only think of Aoki vs Kawajiri

    Its across the body whuch from my grapplinf experience puts immense pressure on the patella/knee as well as ankle. I have tapped to that quite a few times and it's due to the angle the knee winds up on as much as the Achilles lock aspect

    I think that's the issue with alot of tall fighters. Once someone pressures them or comes in, they can do much. That's why you see Gustafsson constantly moving and even resorting to running once his opponent gets too close.

    I agree, Sylvia became timid after fighting Arlovski. Getting rocked, dropped and submitted in the first fight to getting rocked, dropped and nearly finished in the second fight would make someone rethink their fighting strategy.

    Sylvia thought he was gonna run right through Couture also which backfired.

    Sylvia was one of the greatest UFC heavyweight champions ever. He got destroyed in 9 seconds by a washed up boxer in 9 seconds.

    Would have been weird if he got destroyed in 10 seconds by a washed up boxer in 9 seconds.

    Sure,but not many think this can happen to them that early,especially by a slow and old heavyweight.

    And he'd take a massive dump in your ensuite toilet afterwards, blocking the drain and stinking out the house.
