Randy and next to none in the KO department. He couldn't even KO Tim with him standing dead in front of him the the whole fight. Don't confuse that first knockdown with any sort of punching power that you might think Randy has, because he has none. Anybody can be knocked down, especially as somebody as ungraceful and heavy footed as Sylvia.
IN MY OPINION, all that fight was is just an embarrassment to the UFC to show how weak the HW division is in the UFC. Randy, great fighter, I don't dispute that. Sylvia- horrible fighter, but with his range and high number of punches it's a matter of time before someone runs into them, that's how he wins fights.
Normally, I give anyone a "punchers chance" but considering Randy has no punching power it's hard to give him even that against CroCop. Randy did well keeping a larger fighter immobile on the ground which is impressive. Randy also has the advantage of having experience with the cage which CroCop does not have alot of so that there is something for Randy to exploit. Will it be enough? In my opinion, it's very doubtful. CroCop now has his UFC jitters out of the way with that last (read: lame) fight. Randy could be the first big name from the UFC that CroCop faces and he will make an example out of him.
The "all knowing" comment, I'm not sure where that comes from. You and I have never had any words that I am aware, but I'm sorry you feel that way.
