Former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia was rumored to be fighting Daniel Cormier this September in his return to the Zuffa family. However, UFC president Dana White denied the fact, and now, Frank Mir has been signed to face Cormier.
Sylvia, who has been begging for a second chance in the UFC, recently commented on the entire situation via Twitter Thursday.
“Well sorry guys I guess I am not fight dc in sf now mirr is taking the fight i was asked to fight him and said yes it was all a done deal,” Sylvia posted.
Sylvia has won three consecutive fights since a TKO loss to Abe Wagner. He is 31-7 in his career, and 7-1 in his last eight.
