Tim "The Maine-iac' Sylvia knows the UFC is headed to his home state next week, and he's still bitter towards the UFC and Dana White for not bringing him back. The next UFC event on August 16th will take place in Tim Sylvia's home state of Maine. Sylvia hasn't fought in the UFC since losing to Minotauro Nogueira in February 2008, and he's never really come close to a return, much to the former heavyweight champ's dismay. Sylvia's next fight will be against fellow ex-UFCer Christian Morecraft, bu read news >>

No more Mr. Nice Guy! Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski is welcome back to the Octagon with open arms. Fellow ex-division kingpin Tim Sylvia is not. Not even for a "Prelims" fight in "The Maine-iacs" home state of Maine, which is where UFC Fight Night 47 takes place later this month on FOX Sports 1. Why? Only UFC President Dana White knows for sure, but Sylvia is not too happy about it. From his recent New England Fights (NEF) podcast: "Dana is the read news >>

Two-time UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia has always had an unfair amount of hatred thrown his way. He was the poster boy for the general crappiness of the UFC's heavyweight division from 2002 through 2008. He was stripped of the UFC title in 2003 for taking steroids. He was generally less than exciting in his post-Forrest Griffin vs. Stephan Bonnar fights, which are the ones most modern UFC fans are familiar with (Griffin-Bonnar set a new standard for the quality of UFC fights). He left the read news >>

The UFC belt is becoming like the Travelocity gnome, getting photographed in the strangest of places. While Tim Sylvia holds the record for sleaziest use of the strap -- thanks to his after hours bangfest with a female "Maine-iac," newly-crowned bantamweight kingpin TJ Dillashaw will attempt to restore some luster to the well-traveled championship (watch his improbable victory here). In fact, "The Viper" has promised to wear his title in place of a cummerbund at his upcoming wedding, though he m read news >>

We will not be silenced! If Nate Marquardt can lose three straight -- in addition to getting knocked out in back-to-back fights -- and still get rewarded with a UFC main event, then surely the world's largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion can find a spot on its Fight Pass "Prelims" for Tim Sylvia. Especially in a place where he's guaranteed to get cheers. The former UFC heavyweight champion has been campaigning for a spot on the upcoming UFC Fight Night 47 fight card (turning it up a notch read news >>

The UFC's first event in Maine later this year has led to some discussion about Tim Sylvia returning to the UFC, but Dana White quickly shot that down. When former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski re-signed with the UFC late last month a lot of people were surprised. After all, Arlovski's career seemed stalled in 2011 when he lost four in a row. But a recent resurgence was enough for Dana White and The Pitbull was brought in to face Brendan Schaub at UFC 174. But what about his biggest n read news >>
