Sylvia: [Cormier] would lose to me


"I don't know. I think the UFC might have got ahead of themselves and they really couldn't find anybody to fight Cormier, so, they had asked us and we agreed to it and I think after we agreed to it, they were able to talk Frank into doing it and they probably thought Frank was a better fit for it than myself.

I think they'd like to see Daniel win and I think he beats Frank, but he would lose to me. I don't know that he (Frank) is an easier fight than (me) but, he is still in the limelight, he is still in the UFC . Frank is definitely better on the ground than I am, but I think my takedown defense and my striking ability would make a tougher fight for DC definitely. But, he is definitely a rising star right now and he would be difficult for anybody really."

He deserves to lose if he can't continue. The ref should have called it after Tim got blasted to the ground
