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.”

Guess we won't be seeing Mir/Sylvia if this goes down. Oh well, wasn't going to be a great fight anyways.

But you never know, they could have surprised us.

Thanks for the article, man.

If his back was hurting him that bad then why did he fight Couture??? But I wish him luck with the surgery.
