Tim Sylvia Talks About Fighting Fedor

Tim Sylvia seems to like his chances going into his July 19 fight against Fedor Emelianenko. Check out the following quote he made at the recent Affliction press conference:

“I’m not a sacrificial lamb. They needed a guy that was not only good enough but who wanted to fight Fedor. A lot of guys won’t fight him. He deserves all the respect he gets, he’s earned it, but I know I have a chance to win. In the end he’s six feet tall and I’m six-foot-eight so obviously I’m going to keep try and keep it standing. He finishes most guys by armbar and I’m training a lot of armbar defense. I have a great camp back in Iowa and a lot of great guys to train with. If I can keep it standing and stay out of a bad position I will come out on top.”
