What a bad time for Tim Sylvia. First he loses his shot at the UFC heavyweight belt. Then he was accused (sorta, many feel this was a case of ‘lost in translation’) of having no heart by Yushin Okami. Follow that up with Big Nog’s camp accusing him of greasing. With all that bullshit going on, I can almost understand why he lost it a little regarding Brock Lesnar getting paid more than him. But I still don’t get why he talked about jumping ship to M1. That’s about the worst idea in the world, and the dumbest thing for a guy to say when he works for sharks like the UFC.
Well, apparently Tim has smartened up and is trying to take back his words with another abortion of spelling and grammar on his website. Honestly, Tim writes like a 13 year old girl:
well let me just start off by saying people r fucked up by saying that i want to leave the ufc. I dont its my home and i would love to be there for the rest of my carear. Second I didnt say i wanted or even was thinking about m1 u guys (forum users) asked about it and I told u my manager runs it thats it, so please dont take shit out of context. Some of u people are going to get me in trouble with the ufc.
Just to refresh your memory as to what Tim Sylvia said, here’s his original message:
i have one fight left on my contract i want to stay with the ufc but i am going to go were the money is right now Brock is making more m0ney then me that has to change i have a better name then him and i am a better fighter then him, i case u didn’t know my manager runs m1 so i have a pretty good in so we will see what happens in the next few months.
I’d go through all of the points where his new message is contradicted by his old one, but I’m way behind on posts so screw it. Y’all are relatively intelligent people, and you don’t need me to hold your hand on this one. You figure this one out on your own, I’ll dig up more stuff to make fun of. Deal? Good!
