Tim has all the tools needed to be Champion obviously, as he has done before. If my memory serves me correctly, and it usually does, he was a huge underdog in the Ricco fight. When he won that fight alot of people came out of the woodwork stating that Tim was awesome and Ricco did'nt have a chance. This IS an MMA forum afterall and a differnce in opinion is welcomed and bastardized here. All of the negativity surrounding Tim is really starting to make me upset.
Tim sacafices alot for our entertainment and trains quite hard for where he is. When he's winning you say it wasnt spectacular enough and if he losing you say he was a has been or never was. We as fans of the sport are far from being perfect in our juding of others for their talents but what I ask is give him at the very least some "fighters respect". Love him or hate him he isn't going anywhere and holds some exciting fights to his credit, and is a great personality.
That is all.
