On Friday, around 12:00, I’ve got a couple of big announcements to make about my career. So all of my loyal fans will want to stay tuned to my website because this is huge.”

– Former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia — who has one fight remaining on his current contract with the promotion — reveals via his official Web site that “huge” news about his career is forthcoming. Setting a date and time seems a bit strange … wonder what it could be?

Heres the link to his website

Its got me wondering what it is!
It can't be anything to do with the title because he'll have to work his way back up.
He can't announce he's leaving the UFC because he's still got 1 fight left on his contract!

As much as I think Tim's style is a bit boring he's still a legit top 5 HW. Unless the UFC are stupid I really don't see him leaving. Also adding Tim to the increasing number of HW free agents would be a major mistake. It would just take the likes of DREAM, WVR or another MMA company sign them an the UFC would have a major rival!


Could it be Arlovski Vs Sylvia 4! Andrei can have his revenge with his first fight back under an new £500,000 a fight contract!

Very good points...IT almost has to be with the UFC since he's still tied up....I'm hoping it has to do with his next opponet or a contract extension. I'm hoping he's not retiring (Unlikely he would, but shit, what else could it be?)

I SERIOUSLY hope it's not another fight with arlovski tho. After sitting through that third one, which was a 25 minute snooze fest, and watching Arlovski's overly cautious style since then, I'd hope the UFC is smart enough not to make that mistake again.

To tell the truth, given he probably won't be leaving the UFC or get a title shot, the announcement probably isn't as important as he's making it out to be. Hope I'm wrong tho

He's going to say that his contract runs out in august and he just signed on for a tag team match for HDnet featuring himself and randy couture vs cro cop and fedor in a ring-shaped cage.

The first thing that came to mind when he said HUGE its that he'll be fighting Fedor next but that's not it.

you have NO IDEA how close I was to saying that. That's about the biggest thing I could think of. And if the UFC REALLY wanted to piss Couture off, they'd sign Fedor and have tim fight him. However, I couldn't see THis happening. Fedor probably wouldn't sign unless he could fight for the championship right away.

WHo knows, wierder things have happened.

Now watch, He'll announce something like "I've decided to stop Deer hunting and Fishing" or something like that

yeah i agree. why would he say he's leaving if he still has one fight left. that would be a dumb move. why would the ufc do anything for you career if you are on the way out......anyway stay or leave i could care less about big boring tim.

I hope Tim is not leaving, He is one of the best HW's around, Plus he is one of my favourite fighters.

He did say a couple announcement's didnt he?

Imagine that he says, 1) He is staying with UFC and his next fight is huge, And then 2) Fedor just signed and he is my next opponent.

Unlikely? Yes, But I would love to see that.

I dont wanna bring it up, But Randy (Even if he would) must get through Nog. Before he thinks about Fedor in the UFC.

About Tim/Fedor, A man can wish hey!
