According to reports, former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia will face Daniel Cormier in the final Strikeforce heavyweight fight. The bout will take place September 29 from Sacramento, California.
Sylvia (30-7) has pushed hard in the past few months for a return to the UFC, but UFC president Dana White has continued to deny that. It seems he will return, but under the Strikeforce banner.
The report, first posted by MMAjunkie.com, claims that Sylvia has signed a multi-fight contract. That would mean he might eventually fight in the UFC if he defeats Cormier.
