    I would disagree with whoever puts Randy in their top 5 hws. He beat Tim and Gonzaga. If AA is top 5, and Tim beat him twice, even though Randy beat Tim, I would rank Tim above Randy. He has had a more consistent run at HW and IMO beat more quality HWs.

    I would also take Tim in a rematch over Randy.

    look guys, Brock Lesnar brings in more money thats why he earns more money.

    its only fair.

    just because someone has been around for a long time or has more fights than someone else doesnt mean they deserve more money.

    how many Tim Sylvia shirts do you see people wearing? thought so.....

    If Sylvia really cared about making more money then he would be more reckless/more of a showman in the ring so he could be marketed to the fans but, he decides to take the boring decision wins that nobody wants to see.

    Bottom line is this is a business and Sylvia doesnt know how to make money in this business effectivly so he's blaming other people who have marketed themselves better.....what a Douche.

    I am probable missing someone in there that I should have in there but that is pretty much my top 5.

    Where is Tim on your's?

    Mine you I kept Randy out because he has not fought in close to a year. I also think everyone on there would beat him if they were to fight now. Yes, I would take Tim in the rematch.

    Everyone im sure puts AA in there top 5 im sure. People have to remember that Slyvia beat AA 2 out of 3 fights. Tim catches alot of slack but he is a top 5 HW without a doubt.

    As well they should.. Not everything in life is fair, and people need to get over it... When Tim Sylvia can put as many butts in the seats, and make the company as much money as Lesnar can... then he really can't complain.

    To me.. this is like a veteran NFL, MLB, or NBA player complaining about what a super star rookie gets paid..... Its part of every sport... Not just MMA or solely the UFC... I mean look what Kimbo is making per fight....

    I wouldn't call that "shady". You pay the bread winners, not the fight winners(sometimes they one in the same). This is life. This is how every successful business is run.

    Floyd Mayweather didn't make as much money as Oscar De La Hoya. In fact, Floyd needed Oscar for the pay day he got from that fight.

    If you run your own business, you will operate like this, or you will close. It's not personal. This is why the UFC is at the top. They market their most marketable talent. Have they made mistakes? Of course. Loosing Arlovski, who is my estimation is a very marketable fighter was a big one. Loosing Tim? Anyone really care? Anyone stopped watching? No.

    I would even argue that they've lost Tito Ortiz at his most unpopular time. His fights were snoozers, and even casual fans who only really know him, left my house and went home during his last two fights. (and i'm somewhat of a Tito fan) Even so, I wouldn't be surprised if the UFC brings Ortiz back before they bring Tim Sylvia back.

    3. Barnett
    4. Sylvia
    5. AA/Werdum
    I agree 99%. Werdum is no 6, just because he lost to AA. I do this Werdum would win the rematch, but until that happens what i think doesn't matter.
