Tim Sylvia hasn’t fought for the UFC since 2008 when he lost to Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. However that hasn’t stopped the 3-time champ from campaigning to get on the UFC’s Fight Night 47 card in his hometown of Maine. Apparently Sylvia’s call to arms via Twitter was too much for Dana White, who blocked Sylvia after he was bombarded with dedicated Sylvia fan’s Tweets to give Sylvia a slot on the card.
Lol @danawhite blocked me. I think all my fans was getting to him and didn't want to here my name anymore, if he just listen 2 them.
