People thought the fight was made and nobody wanted to see it, nothing but complaints and "mismatch." Turns out it's off and now people are upset? The best fight Strikeforce could make for both Cormier and Barnett is a rematch because they are the only HW fighters in SF who could give each other a competitive match.

Today, Dana White reported exclusively to the Underground that Tim Sylvia would not be joining the Zuffa roster, under either the UFC or the Strikeforce banner.It was widely reported that the ex-UFC heavyweight champion had signed a four-fight contract with the promotion, and would fight Strikeforce Grand Prix Champion Daniel Cormier in late Septemnber.However, this appears to not be the case. White said the signing was never announced, and that "long story, but yes, Tim is not with Zuffa."White received criticism earlier today, as he had told the media that Tim Sylvia was not an option to fight Cormier, before today's news of Sylvia's signing broke onlineBut, as is usually the case with rumors, in the words of White himself: "Never a FACT unless I say it is."©2012 Mixed Martial Arts llc.Developed in partnership with Adept Mobile
