Sylvia: [Cormier] would lose to me

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

“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.”
