Former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia (23-3 MMA, 8-3 UFC), who lost his belt to Randy Couture at UFC 68 in March, says he’s hoping to make a return to the UFC in October. Therefore, he’s unlikely to be a part of California’s UFC 74 event next month.

I understand that Tim has 3 fights left on his contract but....I don't believe he is a very good sell for the ufc. Even when he is champ people are rooting against him. He does have an impressive win record (KO) but he is so big, he would probably knock out a grizzly if he landed a punch lol Well obviously im joking but i'm not sure if he is a top contender (skill wise), or if its just the size of him which makes him hard to fight. Well not so hard for Randy!! I don't think his back had anything to do with Randy knocking his ass down in the first 3 seconds. Well it will be interesting to see what will become of Tim Sylvia....

I have always enjoyed watching Tim fight. I hate the man, but enjoy his fights.

Tim is a big draw for the UFC if he's fighting a fan favorite. A lot of people pay to see a hero (randy) take on the big evil champ (tim)

He is gonna be OK in the fans eyes if he fights with passion. Everything will be forgotten after some nice 1-2nd round KOs

Ya, if he goes back to fighting how he fought when he was fighting Cabbage, Lambert, etc. he'd be a draw again, although with a newly stacked heavyweight division, I don't see him ever winning the title again.
