Yea, I don't like Randy's chances against Cro Cop, but this performance at least makes a fight intriguing and for the UFC's sake very marketable.

Watched it at a bar in Hollywood, and we were saying that first punch totally made Tim lose confidence. Wow
I also can't believe Babalu got KTFO

Yea, good point. That initial combo that put Tim on his ass was a huge boost for Randy mentally and a huge shot to Tim's psche. I mean he was supposed to be the big bad giant and within 10 seconds he's on his ass trying to survive.

Decent event saved by a main event that was better than expected. Biggest disappointment Babalu, what the heck happened to you man? I was a little disappointed by the undercard shown as Kampmann and the other guy will never amount to anything in my opinion as one cant strike and the other cant defend on the ground. In good news, two UFC PPV's in April with some nice bouts already lined up on both. What's odd is that Arlovski may end up with another title fight before Sylvia does if he can beat Fabricio next month, facing the winner of the CroCrop/Couture fight later this year. I just don't the UFC has any intention of pushing Sylvia, considering how lackluster his reign has been.

I was really happy for Randy, the guy is just amazing! I wish I would've been able to put money down last week on Randy it would've been a nice payout. As far as him and Cro Cop, he will be the underdog again and hopefully will come prepared with a good game plan or he'll get KO'd. I'll be putting my money down on Randy though.

I didn't see the fight, but I KNEW Randy would win. Sylvia flat out SUCKS. Boring boring fighter.
But there is no one in UFC that can stop Cro Cop. Nice to know you, Randy.
I am waiting for PRIDE to shut down so I can see Fedor tear through everyone. No one in the world can beat that man unarmed.

Neither do I but it is a more compelling fight now than it was a week ago. With Randy pulling off the upset against Sylvia the UFC will finally have a marquee HW matchup. I think Cro Cop will destroy Randy, but it is hard to count Randy out of any fight.
