Who does Tim Sylvia really want to fight next? (Video)

Tim Sylvia

During the in-ring UFC 77 post-fight interview "The Maine-iac" called out Cheick Kongo after he defeated Brandon Vera. He did it again in the UFC 77 post-event press conference.

In the video above (also just after UFC 77), however, he says he's fighting Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. "Minotauro" says he's fighting Sylvia at UFC 81 in February on SuperBowl weekend.

What gives? Does Sylvia want Kongo but is facing "Big Nog" instead? Confusion.
