Tim-Ber: Tim Sylvia's Decline Continues In Kansas City
Tim Sylvia

It was just three short years ago that Tim Sylvia took on former Pride heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira for the interim heavyweight championship at UFC 82. Although he was unsuccessful in that bout, the two-time UFC heavyweight champion looked better than he had in awhile. The main gripe with Sylvia was that he had become gun-shy since being dropped by Andrei Arlovski in their first bout back in 2005.

After the loss to Nogueira, the UFC and Sylvia parted ways. It was time for Big Tim to move on and no one wanted to see him battle for the heavyweight title anymore. Luckily for Sylvia Affliction was looking to expand from a t-shirt company into a full-fledged MMA promotion and matched him up against the man many feel is the greatest heavyweight of all time in Fedor Emelianenko.
