    Default Fedor vs. Tim appears to be likely

    Sometime this summer. Heard it from a reliable source, and it apparently up on the Sherdog forums somewhere.
    Jacob Schlottke---Gone too soon, and the world is a little less bright because of it. RIP, brother.

    One, two, Evans is coming for you...

    Is this the fight that will supposedly be in Chicago, the same weekend I am in Vegas for Olympic Trials? (They planned it that way, I know it!)

    I wonder how?

    I dont think Fedor wil fight outside of Dreams or M-1.

    Dangerous fight for Fedor. Tim is a big, powerful and dangerous fighter to surpirse more technical and more evolved fightrs. fedor should by all rights beat him six ays from suday; Tim is easily capable of throwing a right hand that could put Fedor out and ruin his career. If I were Fedor Im not sure Id fight him; their are more marketable fights

    Eventually Brock Lesnar will be a viable opponetn, Nog would be if it werent for the UFC, and Frank Mir would be an easy win, but a marketable fight. I dunno.....

    Tim Sylvia, reigning UFC heavyweight champ, dehtroned by the worlds finest (IMO)Randy Couture and then reisntated as champ after Coutures departure.

    He mis about 7 feet tall and a good boxer, but very unpopular due to a lackluster fighting style and public persona. He is a quality fighter who although awkwad; ko'd superstar kickboxer Pedro Rizzo, submission star Jeff Monson, and Ricco Rodriguez, who fought Minotauro to a draw.

    He was recenty defeated by Mintauro losigg the belt and will likely be booted from the UFC for his lackluster crowd response

    Unfair but the UFC is a cruel place

    Didn't Sylvia leave the UFC a few weeks ago and sign with Monte Cox's new Adrenaline promotion? (M-1 is dead now and Cox is promoting Adrenaline)

    Not 100% right, but most importantly, Sylvia lost to Nogueira for the title, so Tim was never reinstated as champ.

    Tim Sylvia and Ben Rothwell Sign with Adrenaline MMA
    by Dann Stupp [mmajunkie] on Mar 28, 2008 at 9:00 pm in - News -
    Former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia (24-4), a longtime UFC fighter whose relationship with the organization was oftentimes rocky, has left the organization and signed with Adrenaline MMA -- the promotion previously known as M-1 Global.

    Adrenaline MMA CEO Monte Cox announced that former IFL stand-out heavyweight Ben Rothwell (29-5) has also signed with the organization, which is working toward a June 14 show in Chicago.

    The announcements were made on today's edition of "Inside MMA" on HDNet.

    Both Sylvia and Rothwell are represented by Cox, who's also one of the sport's most prominent fight managers.

    Sylvia, who had spent more than five years with the UFC and held the heavyweight belt on two different occasions, had one fight left on his contract with the organization. He says the split with the UFC was mutually agreed upon.

    MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) reported his possible depature earlier today -- soon after Sylvia posted a message on his official website promising a big announcement on "Inside MMA."

    His deal with Adrenaline MMA is non-exlusive, meaning he will be able to compete outside the organization.

    "I'll be real active, fighting six or seven times a year," Sylvia said. "Adrenaline is a new company that's just starting up, but they're allowing fighters to fight outside of their organization. That's huge... Take for instance my last fight. Granted, I loss, but I came out of there unhurt and unscathed. I could have fought a week or two later.

    "Being 32 years old, I have four or five good years ahead of me. I plan to make the most of it."

    M-1 Global launched in October 2007 after the organization was purchased by a group of American investors from Sibling Entertainment. However, after announcing that Emelianenko signed with the organization more than six months ago, Cox admitted this week that the fighter only signed a letter of intent. The organization and M-1 Global split ways this week, and the M-1 name will return to Emelianenko's manager and former M-1 president, Vadim Finkelchtein.

    Sylvia, who suffered a third-round submission loss to Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in his host recent fight, specifically mentioned Emelianenko, who's now a free agent, as a fighter he wants to face in the future.

    As for Cox, he is committed to getting Adrenaline MMA off the ground.

    "It's a chance for me to build an organization," Cox said. "We're not going to come in and be the UFC. Anyone who tries to do that is crazy.

    "We're brand new. What we want to do is I want to identify exciting fighters, up-and-coming fighters, and give them a chance to perform on a big stage. And hopefully, we'll gather a big following and someday down the road be doing pay-per-views and such."

    Rothwell, a Miletich fighter like Sylvia, has competed exclusively with the IFL since April 2006, going a perfect 9-0. He's currently riding a 13-fight win streak.

    "We have two of the best heavyweights in the world to start off," Cox said of Adrenaline MMA. "There are a lot of organizations that would like to be in our shoes."
