Tim Sylvia Wants Lesnar And Overeem Fights In The UFC


“I want to get up there. I want to get on the big stage again and prove myself. It’s not about winning titles. I’ve won five of them in the UFC, I’ve won other ones in other organizations; I don’t care about fighting for the UFC title again if it never happens. But I do want to get back in the UFC and I do want to fight all the fights that I think the fans want to see (and) the fights that I want. I want to fight (Antonio Rodrigo) Nogueira again. I want to fight Frank Mir again. I’d like to fight Brock Lesnar, you know, Alistair Overeem… I want to fight all those guys. I just think it would be great for the fans. Just keep me around and let me have those great fights. I’m going to put on a show no matter what. I’m going to fight. I’m going to show up and I’m going to fight. …. Dana White, I don’t know if (you’re watching) but give me a shout.”

  1. ThaGreenBandit says:

    Not even interested in watching Sylvia fight. It’s been a long time since I was hyped about a fight of his. Brock? Overeem? Junior would give him a hard time? Really?

  2. I bet he does want UFC tops, but Tim’s day in the sun is long gone!

  3. Joe says:

    yea I bet he wants to get paid to get KOed

  4. 3ric says:

    Poor guy :(

  5. Rowe says:

    Such a long, strange trip for Timmy. I don’t think he’s done being dangerous, but he needs to adapt if he wants to be taken seriously.

  6. Long-Strong says:

    i don’t mind if he was back. the UFC heavyweight roster is pretty thin and there is a couple of fights that would be a good draw. I wouldn’t mind seeing Brock Lesnar take him down violently and ground and pound him!

  7. mike says:

    hey if you dont remember that he has fought some of the toughest fighters in the ufc and was a stepping stone to most title fights he fought with a broken arm he can fight he has a chance aq very good one look at randy an dozen otherfighter that have stayed in it so back off

  8. ThaGreenBandit says:

    Pockets must be kinda light the way he’s practically begging for a fight in the UFC. He fell a long way from where he used to be sitting as the UFC HWT title holder…

  9. john says:

    He would make a solid gate keeper for up and comers

  10. BJ Penn Fan says:

    This guy’s retarded. POS if you ask me… don’t know how he was ever a champ. Him in his “prime” today in the UFC wouldn’t win a single fight against a top 10 fighter.

  11. sucmai cuck says:

    how come he didn’t mention Fedor? LOL!!!!

  12. Andri says:

    I say why not? He wouldn’t hold a candle to the upper echelon of the HW division but there are HW’s in the UFC he could prolly beat,,,

    • yes says:

      Yeah him being a gate keeper sounds good. Mitrione, barry, big country, kongo, even. rematch with mir would be a decent fight.

  13. RCS says:

    i’d love to see him vs Ricco

  14. steve says:

    i dont wanna see this guy fight

  15. Jeremy says:

    I find it funny that he says he will always put on a show, but that is exactly what he does NOT do. You aren’t going to fight people like Lesnar, JDS, Cain, Overeem, and be able to go slow and steady while playing it safe. They much like Randy Couture, and Fedor did to him…are going to bring the fight right to him. Big Tim can’t handle that. He would get crushed anymore in the UFC.

  16. chon209 says:

    @mike yah he got his arm broke by mir and wanted to still fight but thats what roid rage will do which is what he got busted for after the fight and +1 for him wanting $$$ to get ktfo because thats what will happen now with the talent in hw

  17. Dustin says:

    if i was dana i would put him in strike force. and thats it.

  18. 11thhour says:

    Tim Sylvia is terrible… I can’t even picture him beating any of the Top 10 heavyweights in the UFC…
