Don't see what harm it could do if he's offering to fight for $5000. He's better than Rothwell, Broughton, De Fries etc. I'm not a massive fan of his but i'd give him another chance.



FORMER UFC CPL CHAMPION

CPL RECORD: 5-3

Events Attended: UFC 120, CWFC 45, CWFC 52

In a sense I do feel for em, but I'll say this to him. It always looks greener on the other side. His mistake was intentional and aimed to maim the organization by joining a rival one. Had Affliction somehow thrived does one think Tim would be begging for his job back with his million dollar pay. Doubt it...

With that said I'd make him do a public apology denouncing the other orgs and then take him on his offer of zero show purse. Only bonus pays for two fights.

Same goes for Dos Santos, Carwin, Gonzaga, Mir. In fact, pick any other heavy weight you want, I'd rather watch them than Silvia.
lol. I may pick Shogun in a few of those fights.

Do I think Sylvia is at a point in his career to make some serious noise in the UFC? No.

But like I said, he is still somewhat a name, a former UFC champion which holds some initial value to the UFC to help promote an event, and lets just see what he has left in the tank. Lets give him one last run in the UFC.

Hell they let Hardy stick around the stacked WW division after how many losses?

Fav Fighters:
BJ
GSP
Askren
JDS
Belcher
Shogun
Fedor
Hendo
Sonnen

Agree with you on Hardy. Can't believe he got a shot at the belt!!!

Tim is quite delusional, but I would love to see him back in the UFC. HW division is stacked rather slim past the top 7-8 fighters, it couldn't hurt.

Dude has (something of) a name/record, and is a freak- that's always marketable.

HW can never have enough guys in terms of injury replacements, undercard options, and whatnot.

I agree with posters saying they don't see the harm. Give a single-fight contract for a modest paycheque, and tell Timmay his UFC career as a gate-keeper is in his hands: show up in (some sort of) shape, fight your ass off, and you can keep getting paid.

If not, one-and-done, and no biggie.

I could see bringing him back in a fight by fight contract. But as soon as he has a boring performance or gets KO'ed, cut his a$$.

It's kind of like walking into a club and your ex-girlfirend is there plus a whole bunch of other hot chicks. Your ex is all over you wanting you back, telling you she loves you, misses you and is ready to blow you in the washroom. Meanwhile you look around the room and drool over the hot babes chekcing you out. The easy thing is to take one last shot at the ex knowing that you're going to regret it in the morning. The alternative is to hit up a new babe and wait it out the few days you may have to before she gives you a taste.

Silvia is the ex-girlfriend who is willing to blow the UFC in the washroom for a chance to get back in.

I say do the smart thing and move on.

P.S. For the ladies in the forum, just switch the "chicks" for the "dudes". This is not a sexist post!
