No chance against Cormier. As much as I'd love him to win I can't see it Phone Post

 Both Cormier and Barnett had a "+1" fight in their contract

 Yeah, really unsure why DFW denied it yesterday. Not many dudes out there for Cormier and it's good to see Tim back on a bigger stage.

 wow.
Cormier too good to need spoon feeding.
Happy for timmy to get fight, but it sure looks like someone wants to shut he n his fans up while being able to say he was given a second opportunity

So I suppose the idea here is to feed Sylvia to both Cormier and Barnett (who each have one SF fight left), at which point Cormier and Barnett both come over to the UFC, Sylvia gets cut after two losses, and SF finally folds up its HW division? 

Sounds about right.

The only person who could throw a wrench in those plans would be Sylvia, if he were to win one (or both) of those fights, at which point I suppose he may be deemed to have earned another UFC shot along with either (or perhaps both) Cormier and Barnett.  Or if he loses to Barnett after somehow beating Cormier, maybe Sylvia will still get cut anyway.

Suppose there isn't many alternatives out there, anyone else who would be that good a fit is already signed to the UFC.

Blind Date, I remember, Tiki was on it I believe too.


- Tim Sylvia
- Tiki
- Pete Spratt
- Wes Sims
- Josh Thompson
- Ricco Rodriguez

All on blind date. Tim's was the most embarassing. Sims & Ricco's were the most entertaining. Spratt was the biggest playa, Thompson's chick wanted him bad but he didn't go for it.

All but Ricco were broadcast during the same week. I was working from home at the time and about 23yrs old. Used to watch all them dating shows (5th wheel, shipmates, blind date). haha
