I though, do not see how Monson can possibly win this fight. I think Sylvia will back up and throw from his back foot the entire fight. Jab after jab. I dunno if Monson has Shamrock length arms but Sylvia is going to have like a 1' height advantage and a 10"-15" reach advantage.
Monson is a very big guy but is not real mobile or quick and against a huge fighter like Sylvia, quickness is the key if you are a wrestler and can't out strike Sylvia.
This could very well be a 5 round decision or a KO in rd 2 and that is what I am going with. Sylvia by KO in the 2nd rd.
Wishfull thinking, I hope Monson's ring entrance consists of him coming out to "your the best around" by Joe esposito (the infamous karate kid song) and is wearing a shirt with a silk screen print of a rondom photo of Sylvia wearing his belt at a UFC event. Then procedes to double-leg Sylvia and hammer fist his nose and make it look like Franklins, then do that to one of his eyes, then rebreak that right arm.
