Reggie Warren Jr, The Man
 


Like many fighters I beat up, I become their friends afterwards. Tim turned out to be a loyal friend and overall great guy. He works hard and has better cardio than me! Let's help get him back in the UFC! He can destroy most of these heavy weights! If you support him, send Dana and lorenzo a tweet that you want to see him back.

Tim is goofy and a smug SOB, but I want to see him back in the UFC. I like that he's asking for the UG's help. The only thing I want to see him do is flash the UG handsign while Bruce Buffer is calling his name. I'm in.

He doesnt deserve the hate that he gets.


He might not be the coolest guy ever, but he deserves a fight or two against some middle tier guys in the UFC.


TTT for bringing Timmay back.

I've never understood the hate, maybe because I don't judge a fighter based on sex appeal (at least not all the time). I'd like to see him fight a guy like Morecraft to see if he still has it. Can he consistently make 265 also?

I think he should make a highlight video of himself and post it on the UG and send it to Dana, that would get him some buzz. Something like the Kenny Powers highlight.

 I just didn`t like his fightiing style.Seemed like he tried to keep it standing at all costs (smart move BTW) and just wanted to jab his way to victory.Him coming in very overweight (not training seriously) against Wagner & getting KOed by Mercer was a sore spot to MMA.

I am not particularly a fan...but....I have to admit he touched me in this video.

I think he deserves a chance.

 Oh was it? Come on! He stood a little too long and got knocked out by one of the toughest boxers of all time...how bout when Arlovski was considered an animal and knocked Tim down and he bounced right back up and knocked Arlovski out cold? How was that for the sport?

I am not a fan of Tim's style either, I didn't like him much when he was champ but when he plays the game his way he is a tough guy to beat. He will never be champ again with the depth of today's HW division but he could certainly beat a lot of guys and do middling to fair, he is world class.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but Dana should give him a shot again.

Also didn't people boo the hell out of Tim's last fight? He was pressing the guy against the cage for the majority of the fight.

 8 seconds was all it took...Mercer can crack!

I just think Tim has shown a lot of heart in his fights and has talent. I would like to see how these new heavyweights do against him.

 Don`t get me wrong Reggie.I liked Tim at one point in time.I even met him in the Sheraton hotel in Denver Co & he was as nice as a person could be.He now just seems like one of those slow,low effort plodding heavyweights this late in his career.

 Hes ready to put back 100% effort. Tim Sylvia weighing 265 will be different than the guy fighting at 300.

Always LOVED Tim. I hope wining 6 of his last 7 is enough to get him back in. Would love to see him back.

 There is a good argument on both sides of this debate.  The KO losses to a TUF reject and a washed up boxer to go along with the slow paced jabcentric style are the obvious negatives, but you can't convince me Sylvia doesn't beat at least half the HW division.

 I hope Tim is doing alright these days. As in he isn't struggling financially. I would like to see him in the big show but he would have to take his body seriously. Remember when Tim was ripped in the early UFC days? You could almost see fucking abs! BEEP!

This. Tim can't fight this way and expect a call back to the UFC. We want to see fireworks in the HW division.
