    Sergei Kharitonov vs Aleksander Emelianenko

    A war between the two hardcore Russian badasses. Oh my, will this be a pleasure to my eyes.



    http://www.prideofficial.com/free/ne...?id=1154067646

    Tim Sylvia should take notes from this fight. That goes for the entire UFC Heavyweight division, actually.

    I predict that this fight will be quite close, and could go either way. When these two fighters are at the top of their own game, they are no joke. They are both scary, tough-as-nails Russian fighters that actually know each other rather intimately. Due to such intimacy, I suspect that this fight will be a chess-match, as both fighers will give due respect to each other. I predict that most, if not all, of this fight will be a standup fight - and likely end up in a KO/TKO or decision.

    My informal prediction is I think Aleks Emelianenko will come out with a flash KO, for unarticulated reasons. In all due respect of the facts at hand, I would formally predict that the fight will be too close to bet on or predict. We'll see how it unfolds.

    Someone needs to stick a post-it note on Tim Sylvia's fridge, reminding him to watch the show "where the big boys play" and learn - that is, if he doesn't mind taking a recession from "Reading Rainbow" with Levar Burton.

    I don't get how anyone can rationalize ranking someone like Aleks ahead of Tim Sylvia.

    Aleks has beaten exactly zero top ten fighters... his biggest win is over Asseurio Silva, whom Sylvia beat more convincingly than Aleksander did, and Tim has beaten atleast a couple top ten fighters as well (Ricco Rodriguez was arguably the number 2 HW in the world when Tim KO'ed him, and AA was top 10).

    People think so highly of Aleks because he smashed up a couple mediocre tall MMA guys, which looks impressive in highlight clips, but neither guy is all that good at MMA (Ricardo Morais and James Thompson) Sylvia would beat both of those guys up badly as well.

    Aleks is definitely overrated (not saying he's bad, but he shouldn't be considered top ten).


    On the other side of the coin, I'll admit I've never seen his win over Assuerio Silva, but I don't see how it could be less convincing than Tim Sylvia's "grab the cage with both hands to avoid going to the ground and throw jabs for three rounds" decision victory.

    He dominated Assuerio for 3 rds. Sylvia didn't do ****. Aleks has better standup than Sylvia as well.

    Kind of off topic but does anyone know the theme music Aleks comes out to? Thanks.



    As for my pick, Aleks.

    I believe it was Josh Barnett who said that Aleksander's standup was better than his brothers (Fedors) after beating him at PRIDE-Total Elimination Absolute

    I like both fighters, but Aleks more.

    This is the fight I'm most looking forward to in the near future.

    Better standup doesn't always necessarily mean you will win a slug fest though. Arlovski's standup is much better than Tim's as well. People like Alistair Overeem and Guy Mezger have better technical standup than Chuck Liddell and he KO'ed both of them, and IMO Jorge Rivera's standup is much better than Chris Leben's, and Leben wound up putting him to sleep. I'm not saying Tim would KO Alex, but being a better striker doesn't ensure a win in a standup battle.

    You do realize you're AGREEING with me, right? I think Sylvia put on a terrible performance, and that's what I said.
