UFC president Dana White was asked on Twitter Friday night about Tim Sylvia signing with Strikeforce, which was reported earlier in the day. White denied the signing of the former UFC heavyweight champion to a match with Daniel Cormier in September.
White confirmed that former Octagon girl Logan Stanton is back, but that “No to Tim” being back with Zuffa. Sylvia has tried to get another contract for several months, but White has continued to say no.
It remains unknown who Cormier will fight in the final heavyweight bout for Strikeforce. The division was absorbed by the UFC, and “DC” is expected to be added to the UFC’s roster after the fight.
