No it wasn't, they released him, he had one fight left.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

I like this match-up a lot better because this is a HUGE test for Fedor, and an even bigger one for Tim. I feel pretty confident Tim is going to win this one, only way I see Fedor managing to win this is by submission.

I agree. But I DO think Tim will win.

ALSO - Listen folks. Tim had one fight left on his contract, and it was revoked, so he could go elsewhere.
Let's remember that Dana White is a very smart man. He PROBABLY said to Tim..
"Tim, go fight outside the UFC, and beat Fedor, so the world will shut up."
If Tim does beat Fedor, it only makes Randy look BETTER, considering Randy smoked a less-then-100%-Tim. And it makes Dana look better, because Dana has said that Fedor was afriad of the UFCs heavyweights.

You don't know who I am? You must be new.

He's been with Monte Cox for a while now.

it's obvious what's going on here.

it's a win win for Dana/UFC.


A. Timmeh goes there, beats Fedor, and comes back to the UFC for a new contract with the buzz behind him that he beat the 1# P4P.

or

B. Timmeh goes there and gets smashed by Fedor and the UFC is glad they let him go.

They did something similiar with Monson a while back

I think that's what happened here as well. Only, I think it will fail because Fedor will beat Sylvia... then Couture.

Wow fellas... The one week I can't get on the boards and Timmy leaves. Now I feel like a retard. Thanks for clearing it up for me.

I'm rooting for Timmy. I liked him a bit more after his comment following his lost to Nog. Something to the effect of "I finally get the crowd cheering for me and then I go and lose." Plus, I still remember his older days when he would dominate people.
