Yes, that's the former UFC Heavyweight Champion taking credit for his fellow ex-champ's recent downfall and proving that apparently there's still some heat between them. "I would imagine Strikeforce would be better for me because they would be a little more lenient with me instead of locking me down, there is a lot of things you can’t do when you fight for the UFC. With Strikeforce I could probably fight more often, the UFC has so many top guys now that they are only fighting twice a year and I don’t want to do that. I want to fight Overeem, Fedor again, Werdum is a good fight and me and Rogers would be a good fight. Arlovski I think would be [like our fight] number three again, me knocking him out. I think I ruined the poor guy, since I knocked him out he hasn’t been the same."

Well by the look of your career since then maybe it was this win that ruined you.

Wow, thats not really wise considering he hasn't even been fighting anywhere near the same level of competition and losing in a worse fashion that Arlovski. Also he flat out refused to fight Arlovski when Affliction had them both under contract.
Their third fight went to a decision and it Arlovski cracked his leg in the second round and never even came close to being stopped.

Tim Sylvia is one of the few guys I honestly don't like in MMA. He was only good when he was on roids, after then he'd jab his way to a decision or turn exciting fighters into boring ones and still lose. This is a desperate attempt at getting back into the big leagues and with him being 2-4 in his last 6 fights against pretty low level comp (Except Fedor and Nog) I'd be concentration on getting past the worlds strongest man and not getting KO'd in the first minute of his fight like he has been in his recent losses.

I agree with Big Tim. Arlovski talked a lot about his ex who is dating Tim. Glad Tim told it like it is.

I really don't care who ruined whose career.

The bottom line is that neither of these guys have been relavent in years, and I don't see either of them re-emerging as contenders. Not in a legit organization anyways

rofl... well now I want mariusz to brutally KO him. I was initially hoping for Tim to get a win and get back to fighting at the level he is capable of, but after hearing that ludicrous statement I'd like for him to get demolished lol.

Tim's never been the smartest guy, let him talk ****.

As for those saying tim should get back on his level of competition, or that he's better than where he is, obviously not. He's always been overrated, and all he's ever had was his jabs and height.

I'm not buying this. Arlovski has decent wins over bigger names than Tim does since that KO.

Yeah Tim, ya might want to look around yourself, smell the fart that is...... and stop talking. AA is still fighting in a big org making big money. your fighting a freakshow fight against a strogman with 1 fight under his belt!!!! And got knocked out by a 50 yr old boxer!!!!(no disrespect to Ray).
