"I think [fans are] going to see a lot of fights that weren't able to happen on other shows. [PWP has] done a great job and got a lot of great UFC vets. I think Paul and I is going to be possibly one of the fights of the year. I'm hoping to stand and bang and I don't see a takedown happening in this fight."
Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia is ready to fight like a "Maine-iac" when he goes toe-to-toe with fellow Zuffa castaway Paul Buentello at tonight's (Aug. 14) "War on the Mainland" event in Irvine, California. Tim-eh wants to show the world he's "back" by finishing "The Headhunter," a claim he already made after submitting Mariusz Pudzianowski at Moosin MMA earlier this year. Can Sylvia re-establish his credibility among the current crop of MMA heavyweights? And will Buentello stick the the script and keep it standing?
