Last night (Sat., Nov. 5, 2011) at ProElite 2: "Big Guns" in Moline, Illinois, Tim Sylvia defeated Andreas Kraniotakes in the headlining bout of the evening. And while he didn't blow anyone away with his performance, "The Maine-iac" still has his sights set on bigger and better match-ups:
"I want to get up there. I want to get on the big stage again and prove myself. It's not about winning titles. I've won five of them in the UFC, I've won other ones in other organizations; I don't care about fighting for the UFC title again if it never happens. But I do want to get back in the UFC and I do want to fight all the fights that I think the fans want to see (and) the fights that I want. I want to fight (Antonio Rodrigo) Nogueira again. I want to fight Frank Mir again. I'd like to fight Brock Lesnar, you know, Alistair Overeem... I want to fight all those guys. I just think it would be great for the fans. Just keep me around and let me have those great fights. I'm going to put on a show no matter what. I'm going to fight. I'm going to show up and I'm going to fight. .... Dana White, I don't know if (you're watching) but give me a shout."
Anyone think the UFC is going to give him a call anytime soon? Do you even want to see Sylvia back inside the Octagon? How about the match-ups he mentioned? Interested?
