UFC Quick Quote: Monte Cox reiterates Tim Sylvia wants to remain a UFC fighter ... if possible

Tim Sylvia

"My situation with Tim is (that) we're looking to re-sign with the UFC. We think he performed well against Nogueira. He got caught but he certainly showed he's top five in the world right now.... We'd like to re-sign with the UFC. (But) if that's not possible there are lots of options now."

-- Monte Cox -- the agent of former heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia -- tells that he is working to get a contract extension for his client with the UFC. "The Maine-iac" has one fight left on his current deal and has mentioned that he's looking for Brock Lesnar-type money. Cox indicates that other options will be explored if the two sides can't come to terms.
