    Tim Sylvia was just added to the UFC.COM heavyweight roster page 2 days ago

    Fighters who are listed on the roster page are almost always either
    a. Active fighters
    b. Inactive fighters still under contract
    c. Hall-of-famers

    Since Timmeh just retired and obviously is not still under contract (otherwise he couldn't have fought elsewhere) could it be that the UFC is going to induct him into the hall of fame???? I can't think of any other reason why he would be listed there, other than to maybe show him a bit of respect, although that seems illogical.

    Say what you want about Timmeh but in terms of accomplishments he's one of the most decorated UFC heavyweights. 2x champ (tied with Cain and Randy) and tied for most title defenses (2- along with Lesnar, Randy and Cain). Thoughts???? I mean why else would he be listed there????!?!?!

    There's literally no fucking way he's actually fighting for the UFC since he weighed more than 340lbs before his attempted last fight, so yeah, he may be inducted into the "HOF".

    Personally, I actually would like to see that. Big Tim doesn't get much respect around here, but he is one of the greatest UFC HW champs ever. He also went 16-0 at HW, which isn't easy to do when you can get KTFO so easily, before he fell afoul of the MIR MAGIC

    Someone ask Dana if Timmy is a Hall of Famer.

    I literally just tweeted 4 days ago, to Dana, that he should step up & add Tim to the HOF. If it happens, which it should, I'm taking full credit.

    I think he absolutely deserves a spot in the UFC HOF.

    He deserves to be in the HOF, despite what the haters on Sherdog think. He's the most accomplished UFC HW champion of all time, and that includes Cain. Cain is more skilled and the better fighter, but less accomplished.

    Tim Sylvia in the early 2000's was no joke. Don't let his fights later on fool you into thinking that.

    Why he's more accomplished than Cain?

    I wouldn't be surprised. He must've been fucking pissed to see a (then) high level UFC HW get absolutely shithoused by FEDOR.

    you know your hall of fame is pretty bad when the addition of tim sylvia vastly increases its legitimacy.

    Well, speaking in very literal terms, Tim had 3 cumulative title defenses whereas Cain only has two.

    Tim Sylvia is easily the most hated fighter of all time. For really no reason other then people will no life being jealous of someone who actually get's off there ass and does something.

    Never was a fan of Big Tims but cant deny he had a great run in the UFC. He deserves to be in their HOF.

    Dana has made amends with fighters he hated in the past and has seen them into the hall of fame

    Pat Militech was recently inducted. He and Dana hated each other for awhile
    Tito was inducted despite Danas hatred for him
    Randy hasn't been taken out of the hall despite Dana's disdain for him

    Now if we can only get Frank and Frye in there hahahaha
