    Like how Randy did back in the day, which LHWs could beat prime Tim?

    Tim "The Spider" Sylvia

    vs

    Jon Jones
    Daniel Cormier
    Anthony Johnson
    Alexander Gustuffson (yes I know that's spelled wrong :D)
    Glover Teixeira
    Jimi Manuwa
    Mauricio Rua
    Ovince "Saint" Preux
    Mischa Cirkunov
    Corey "The Next" Anderson

    I left out Volkan because we haven't seen much of him yet. Which ones can overcome Sylvia?

    I dunno how much that really counts for, Tim beat a prime Arlovski twice and how many of these guys would you favor over AA? I don't think I would favor that many, maybe just Jones, DC, Rumble. And then Sylvia has a much bigger size advantage than AA would.

    Prime Tim is no joke.

    No matter how funny he looks that motherfucker was strong.

    Some of the bigger LHWs might have a shot but they could lose just as easy.

    I think DC would have the best chance. He could probably get Tim down and pound on him.

    Jones, Rumble and Cormier.

    The rest I'd either favour Tim or a tossup.

    Prime Tim had good TDD, a decent chin, 6"8 and knew how to use his length and KO power in his hands and feet.

    Cormier would have the best chance, Tim wouldnt have been able to do much once his incredulousness got him to the ground.

    Id honestly only favor DC over prime Tim. Prime Tim was no joke as much as hes joked about around here. Maybe give Rumble a slight chance. He beats the rest though.

    Not real sure why a question like this ever crossed your mind. Quite frankly, the fact that anyone would discuss a past HW champion facing current LHW's, is a point blank reminder of how this sport has evolved. It also shows just how poor an opinion most fans have of But to answer the question...everyone on that list beats him.

    Neither Shogun or Big Timmeh beat Big Nog. Shogun fought Lil Nog twice and Sylvia got submitted by Big Nog.
