In a recent post on the Tim-Sylvia.com forums, Tim Sylvia himself stated the following:

i have one fight left on my contract i want to stay with the ufc but i am going to go were the money is right now Brock is making more m0ney then me that has to change i have a better name then him and i am a better fighter then him, in case u didn’t know my manager runs m1 so i have a pretty good in so we will see what happens in the next few months.

If this is for real, this will be another serious blow to the UFC heavyweight division, obviously. This seems like just another indicator of how Zuffa is really running the UFC. It’ll be interesting to see how Zuffa handles this situation, be it giving Sylvia more money or letting him leave for M-1, and if it will effect other fighters perception of the UFC and how Zuffa is handling their fighters.

For UFC 81, Sylvia earned $100,000 for his losing effort against Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, plus an addition $60,000 for “fight of the night” honors. Brock Lesnar on the other hand, earned $250,000 for his loss against former UFC heavyweight champ Frank Mir, and had he won he would have earned an additional $200,000.
