Tim Sylvia ‘On the Comeback,’ Doesn’t Want to Fight ‘Bums’
Filed under: MMA Gossip
Former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia has lost three of his last four fights and hasn’t beaten a legitimate opponent in two and a half years. But he’s hinting on Twitter that he expects to be fighting high-quality opponents soon, possibly in Japan.
Sylvia tweeted on Wednesday, “I am on the comeback but I didn’t get into fighting to fight bums.” That followed a tweet on Tuesday in which Sylvia said a scheduled fight with Brandon Lee Hinkle (a 36-year-old who’s lost four of his last five fights and would be described by some MMA fans as a “bum”) has been canceled.
