Because Tim Sylvia is left with no real opponent for UFC 68. Tim beat AA twice, Cro Cop is fighting Sanchez at 67, Vera blew his chance by trying to get more money, and Gonzaga decided to pull out. That pretty much leaves the Champion wide open to any challenger.
Also, he probably wants to put some excitment back into the heavyweight division. He knows how lacking it is and probably wants to give the fans something for thier money.
