After being taken out by the world’s greatest fighter in only :36 seconds, Tim Sylvia is looking to get back on the horse against UFC Hall-of-Famer Ken Shamrock. The two were originally scheduled to meet on December 20th but that has since been postponed to February. Sylvia is now looking to fight on New Year’s Eve in Japan for K-1’s “Dynamite!!”
Sylvia and his manager Monte Cox both state that they are currently in negotiations to get Sylvia overseas to face Shamrock but Shamrock’s camp denies any serious conversations on their part.
Cox says that Sylvia has already gotten the green light to compete in other promotions and that Sylvia would sit out Affliction’s second event, “Day of Reckoning”, which is scheduled for January 24th.
