Former UFC heavyweight champion, Tim Sylvia caught wind that the UFC is heading to Bangor, Maine and he wants in.

‘The Main-iac’ has been trying to get back in to the ZUFFA owned promotion for year’s but with the recent signing of Andrei Arlovski, is there actually some hope?

Here’s what Tim has to say on the subject (via Facebook) and he also has a group you can join in his campaign for a return.

His words:

“The UFC is going to be in Bangor Maine in aug. Please guys contact the UFC guys through social media. Dana white, joe silva, Sean Shelby, and Lorenzo fertetta, and bug them till your blue in the face and let them know you want to see the original Maine-iac on the card. I want to fight for my fans, friends, and family in one of my home towns it’s a perfect fit.

Yes getting paid is a plus but it’s in my home town it’s a dream to fight in my home town and I would almost do it for free. I don’t have to many fights felt in me and would kill to finish up in my home town for all my other fellow Maine-iacs”

The UFC is headed to Bangor, Maine on August 16th with a ‘Fight Night’ card.
