“About my fight with Tim Sylvia, it was ruled a ‘No Contest,’ but, to be honest with you, I don’t really care. For some reason, when the referee raised his arm up, it’s like he gave me a signal to kick him. Even if he didn’t raise his arm up, I would have done it anyway, because Tim said, before the fight, that he was gonna kick me if he had the opportunity. It’s exactly what I told Travis Browne and Greg Jackson. I told them this, and I don’t really care if they disqualify me or not. If I have an opportunity for a soccer kick, I’m going to do it, and I did… I dropped Tim Sylvia with my combo, with my hands. Right, left, right. I’m over all this. It wasn’t necessary to kick him with a soccer kick, but I did it, and pretty much everyone knows that I dropped him. We move on. The bad blood between me and Tim Sylvia, it’s over, and that’s it.”
In an interview with AXS TV former UFC heavyweight champion, Andrei Arlovski discussed his most recent bout against Tim Sylvia at “One FC: Pride of Nations”. In the bout Arlovski was able to drop Sylvia with punches, however in a mix up of the rules system soccer kicked Sylvia until the ref halted the action and gave Sylvia the option to back out of the contest.
