    Tim Sylvia fights Christain Morecraft at a local Maine card September 6th. Pretty good fight of the glass jaws.

    I guess I'll go with Morecraft, but one jab in either direction could end the fight.

    Morecraft will win this, Sylvia would win if he trained hard, but he won't.

    Agreed. Does he still fight 300+ pounds?

    Could see it going either way honestly.... Tim really is a stepping stone at this point, wonder if the UFC picks Morecraft up again if he gets the W. Wouldn't shock me, they seem to signing pretty much any heavyweight that they can get their hands on.

    Morecraft is the only fighter I know of to have won via standing arm triangle. However I thought he retired due to health problems. He was KOed in 3 of his last 5 fights.

    Should be able to get rid of Sylvia though, unless Sylvia is back on top form which has hasn't been close to for years.

    I could see Sylvia getting signed to the Maine card just for ticket sales. That said Tim needs to get his weight down to be on the big show again be it Bellator or the UFC. Morecraft lost 3 of his last 4, don't see either of them back

    Still not going down to HW I see. Sorry, I just don't get why he begs to be signed by the UFC if he isn't proving to be taking his fights outside of the UFC seriously. "I will take it seriously after you hire me" isn't really that enticing an offer.

    Pretty much, he comes in looking like a slob and gets beat up then asks the UFC to hire him. If coming in out of shape and putting on poor performances got you a shot at a major promotion then Butterbean would be on the UFC roster already.

    A few buddies of mine fought on the Moosin card with him, I think he needs to rematch Maruiz

    Well Arlovski is back in the UFC so a thrilling new instalment of Arlovski / Sylvia could happen if Sylvia were resigned too.
