It's about time. This is probably the fight that would have happened in the UFC if they were able to sign him.

Tim Sylvia will post a serious threat to Fedor's unbeaten record. Yes I know he has a loss, but it was a cut and I think the doctor's didn't let him continue. The only problem with Sylvia is that he has no ground game.
