Former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia wasn’t fibbing when he revealed during the in-ring interview immediately after his loss to Randy Couture at UFC 68 that he injured his back.
In fact, “The Maine-iac” is considering surgery, according to a blog post earlier this month on his official Web site.
Here’s the snip from April 13:
“Matt [Hughes] and I are in St. Louis, MO today and tomorrow for the NRA show. I got my 3rd cortisone shot for my back and if this doesn’t work out, I’ll have surgery in 2 weeks. Heading up to Oregon on Wednesday for some turkey hunting, I’ll be hanging out with my buddies from BowTech Archery while I’m up there.”
