They wanted me to fight one guy then they tried to switch opponents on me 2 weeks before I fight just bullshit

With a fight falling through for the DREAM.13 event on March 22, former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia is next looking to fight against mariusz pudzianowski on April 23 and Wes Sims on June 5, his manager confirmed to MMA Fighting.

Although not officially announced, Sylvia has been training to fight at DREAM.13, but it appears his Japan debut will have to wait. He was first offered Josh Barnett and declined. He agreed on an opponent, but bowed out Thursday when offered a different opponent.

"And why turn down Barnett? That is the most relevant fight he would have had since Fedor ripped him a new one almost 2 years ago."I've always liked Tim, but can't argue with the truth.

Tim is acting like he has a shitload of options.Aside from a Pudzilla fight which likely won't even go down and D.13, it's not like promoters are beating down doors to get him to fight for them.And why turn down Barnett? That is the most relevant fight he would have had since Fedor ripped him a new one almost 2 years ago.
