Dana – “If Sylvia wants to end his career in UFC he has to go on TUF”Former two time UFC champion Tim Sylvia (24-5) recently talked to Fighters Only Magazine expressing interest that he would like to end his career with the UFC. However when the 33-year-old Maine-iac squared off against legendary Mercer, 48, in a mixed martial arts encounter that formed part of the Adrenaline III show in Birmingham, Alabama. Sylvia was knocked out 9 seconds into the bout by an overhand right which left the former champion on the canvas, forcing the referee to call an end to the bout. The president of the UFC, Dana White was vocal on his thoughts regarding Sylvia’s comments on returning to the UFC:“Are you kidding me, he seriously wants to return to the UFC?” asked White “He hasn’t won a fight in years and when he did he usually put everyone to sleep, the only time he’s in an exciting fight is when he’s getting his [expletive] ass handed to him. Look, he just got beat by a near 50 year old in under 10 [expletive] seconds, how do you expect to be taken seriously after that? he just made MMA look like a complete joke. If he has any hopes of ending his career in (the) UFC he will have to go on TUF, there’s no other way he’s getting in”

 Without Tim Sylvia, Gan McGee would have been the UFC HW champion.

That's going to be The Dana's new "thing", "You want in the UFC, go threw TUF". LOL

MountainMedic -  poor bastard, he just can't catch a break sometimes

Don't you think it's mainly his fault? I honestly can't feel bad for the guy, he clearly has fallen off (and that's an understatement). What happens if he loses at Trilogy?

Hang em up Sylvia!

Blame Rizzo for that, since he lost to Gan in the first place.

Sylvia also pissed hot after beating McGee, another negative on Tim's legacy.

 Does this set the stage for a Superheavyweight TUF?

That's uncalled for. At least DW didn't disrespect Chuck for going out with a string of L's.

who gives a fk, Dana always treated him like sht because he has a sloppy body.

when is someone with half a brain going to come along, create a rival organization, owned and operated by fighters and send Dana back to cardio box

he's done nothing positive for the fighters, more fans but the fighters arent paid accordingly and he treats them like crap
