Is Tim Sylvia headed to Strikeforce?


June 4th, 2012
MMA NEWS




There has been some chatter lately regarding former two-time UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia. The “Main-iac” is reportedly on Strikeforce’s short list to become the “plus one” opponent for newly crowned Heavyweight Grand Prix winner Daniel Cormier.

Sylvia has been lobbying Dana White and company for an octagon return for some time now, with no success. Perhaps a shot at Zuffa’s “other” promotion, Strikeforce, could help Sylvia move a bit closer to his goal.

Before the whole Cormier vs. Sylvia talk gets out of control though, Big Tim still has one obstacle in the way in the form of Randy "The Wolf" Smith.

Sylvia (30-7) and Smith (14-0-1) face off on June 16 at The Androscoggin Bank Colisee in Lewiston, Maine for New England Fights' (NEF) Fight Night 3.

Sylvia should have no trouble with the high level club fighter Smith, but his level of dominance might actually determine if he gets the coveted Strikeforce offer.
