Inside Fights: In recent years, the UFC has made both Kimbo Slice and Roy Nelson go through “The Ultimate Fighter” process to get into the UFC. As a former heavyweight champion, you shouldn’t have to do this, but if you were offered the opportunity, would you take that as an opportunity to earn another UFC contract?
Tim Sylvia: Absolutely. 100%.

In the event you haven’t seen it, here’s Sylvia’s passionate plea and thank you to the fans that want to get him “home.”
