Tim Sylvia Has Signed With Strikeforce, Fights Daniel Cormier In September

Tim Sylvia Has Signed With Strikeforce, Fights Daniel Cormier In September.


Sources close to the event today told MMAjunkie.com that Sylvia (30-7 MMA, 9-4 UFC) has signed a deal and will fight recent Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix champion Daniel Cormier (10-0 MMA, 7-0 SF) at an event planned for Sept. 29 at Power Balance Pavilion in Sacramento, Calif.

Sylvia and his manager, Monte Cox, declined to comment.

Regardless, Sylvia is now headed to Showtime for his Cormier bout.

Interestingly, Sylvia signed a multi-fight deal despite the impending close of the Strikeforce heavyweight division.

The five-time heavyweight champ has racked up three wins since a first-round TKO loss to “The Ultimate Fighter 10″ veteran Abe Wagner that drastically set back his comeback. Overall, he is 7-3 since he fought Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira for the interim heavyweight title at UFC 81 and lost by third-round submission.

For Timmy’s sake I hope it is true.
