100 Fighters the UFC Should Sign Before Tim Sylvia

If you are on Twitter you have probably noticed a rather large campaign attempting to get Dana White to sign Tim Sylvia back to the UFC. It was interesting for the first 3 or 4 tweets, but it is getting rather old. The bottom line is that Tim Sylvia is past his prime and does not deserve another chance. He is much better suited to being knocked out by the likes of ray Mercer and Abe Wagner. I stated that there are at least 100 fighters that the UFC should sign before Tim Sylvia. I wasn’t just using hyperbole. I have named them. Yes, I have too much free time on my hands. With a limited roster, there are several of these fighters who belong in the UFC. If fans want to twitter bomb Dana White and Sean Shelby do it on these guys behalf. Many of these guys could hang in the UFC. Some of these guys could contend at the top. My Twitter campaign is for the UFC to take a look at some of these guys.

I could have added more. I could have added any fighter under the Strikeforce banner or any fighter under the Bellator banner. I could have named several other veterans more deserving of a second chance that Tim Sylvia, but I refrained. I hope you get the point.

    Gunnar Nelson should be UFC first choice. No doubt. It is totally baffling why they haven’t done so already. Maybe Joe Silva isn’t doing as good of a job as he should.Or maybe the UFC is more interested in what country the fighter is from, not how good he is. If so they are doing a big mistake by not signing Gunnar. He has some great supporters all over the UK, Ireland and also Scandinavia and his father roots are in the USA. His father brother even serves in the US marines and can be seen on Gunnar’s official website. Here is a video interview with Neil “Goliath” Grove done after Gunnar last fight in Ireland last month. Neil says Gunnar would win both Ben Askren and Douglas Lima 99 times out of 100!

    Yeah, Timmy will have a tough time getting back into the UFC, even if he were to string together some impressive wins.
