Tim Sylvia and Sean McCorkle Impressively Defeat Unimpressive Opponents This Weekend

Fight Tour’s answer to the UFC’s Harley bonus. (Pic:

Two former UFC vets trying to climb their way back into the big leagues stepped up one minor, insignificant rung this weekend. What both fighters really need right now is a string of victories, so the names of the men they faced aren’t as relevant as the wins themselves, which is fortunate because you’ve never heard the names of the men they defeated.

Former UFC champion Tim Sylvia took a break from bustin’ perps to climb back into the cage at last night’s “Fight Tour” card. Momentarily standing across the cage from him was Patrick Barrentine, a 9-6 submission specialist. Barrentine took the fight on three weeks notice after a two year hiatus from competition, so he may not have come into the fight as sharp as he would have liked. gave a quick recap of the fight, which saw “The Maine-iac” dump Barrentine to the canvas and end the fight via ground and pound in just under three minutes. This was Sylvia’s first fight back since his quick loss to Abe Wagner at Titan FC.

Sean McCorkle made it to the UFC with a big win streak and an even bigger mouth. Though his trash talking abilities do little good when no one’s listening, he did put his experience to good use as he dispatched Alex Rozman on Friday night at “Legends of Fighting 48: Mega”. I’m not certain how much notice Rozman had for the fight, but with a 1-13 record he could have been notified at birth and still not have stood much of a chance in this fight. Just 1:29 into the bout, Rozman tapped out to strikes for the second bout in a row (and third time in his last four fights). This marks McCorkle’s second straight victory since being cut from the UFC following his guillotine loss to Christian Morecraft.

HOLY FUCK. I've posted here once in the past two years and love CP. You guys always made me laugh and shit, but XENOPHON is the cancer of this fucking site and it goes downhill every article when XENO name pops up. Clearly no one gives a fuck what his crack head ass has to say. Go to fucking sherdog if you want to be serious leave the fucking lol's to the pros.

Hate on the now fat fuck Sylvia all you want, but if he decides to trim his ass back down, and wins 4 fights, 1 against a known entity - he can no doubt still compete for a few more years, and likely bust the fuck out of a few big names who are protected by Joe Silva's carefully selected fight cards.
XENOPHON- August 22, 2011 at 8:36 am
Forgetting the long list of Jewish named front men I withheld, as I don't ever want to be accused of kicking the often slimy fucks, the same one's that have a lock on the capital of entrainment, Hollywood that I don't just love the same.
Garlin Holdings Limited, according to someone else who's name I won't mention:
"I’ll jump on the conspiracy bandwagon since everybody wants to lose their damn mind and go crazy out of nowhere...
...The Fertittas are actually running Garlin LLC through Frank J. Fertitta Sr’s, (who definately due to conspiracy linked to ZUFFA has had his wikipedia detailing his life removed) - as was Monte Cox's wikipedia entry, old organized crime connections in Italy with the Maceo crime family.
They signed Fedor to a huge contract through shadow investors bought up the stock and are gonna split the revenue from the stock gains on this boiler room operation with Baybek then use that to buy ProElite through another shadow company and pay off their true masters in Yakuza that own FEG."
Today, the fucks at Zuffa just pawned off through a 9 year lease to FOX a giant shell game. And how much is Fox going to pay the UFC?
Who is really getting outfoxed around here? Just like Intercept440 says: Go read or watch Freakonmics, and pay especially close to their expose of Sumo Wrestling.

First, you should all know who Brian Patton is. Patton recently entered the mixed martial arts world by assisting MMA legend Matt Hughes as a business manager.
Patton has since added Tim Sylvia, Jens Pulver, Robbie Lawler and Jason Black as clients. Patton has worked closely (hand-in-hand) with Monte Cox. Patton in his duties with these Cox managed fighters and mysteriously found himself with executive positions with M-1.
Now take a guess who is Garlin Holdings Limited?
XENOPHON- August 22, 2011 at 7:49 am
Considering that Cage Potato established back in 2008 that Monte Cox is busy, he has over 500 fight promotions to his credit. In his own words, Cox himself has only ever lost money on 6.
What was not mentioned in the Cage Potato interview with Cox is that he involved with nothing but the worst of MMA promoters. I am going to quote some of this, and it's from another MMA site.
First up is Mitchell Maxwell (Chairman, M-1 Global). Maxwell is a producer of Broadway and Off-Broadway shows. Maxwell serves as President, CEO and Director of Sibling Entertainment Group, Inc.
It’s a wholly-owned subsidiary of this company (Sibling Theatricals Inc.) along with mystery partner Garlin Holdings Limited, that are forming the M-1 Global parent company Sibling Sports, LLC.
Sibling Theatricals retained a twenty-five (25%) interest in Richfield Entertainment. Richfield Entertainment has been granted a limited option to finance and fund future projects developed by Sibling Theatricals with the primary source of funding to be provided by Garlin or sources introduced by Garlin Holdings.
Who is Garlin Holdings Limited? Garlin Holdings Limited is a "limited liability company", which means that most can't get the information about the structure, finance and real owners of the company. I will tell you who they are.

There is no doubt Sylvia today has let himself become a fat fuck.
I think that the combination of being let go by by UFC, then dropping in 2008 by two consecutive fights (Fedor and Nogueira, both to chokes may be partially to explain why he ballooned to 300+ pounds.
Keep in mind the weight gain happened in less than a year (he is big fucker at 6'8") and was also offset by a broken right hand (2009), plus later a broken foot (2010).
Aside from the UFC mind fuck they sent him, yes a mind fuck in that Sylvia had never lost 2 fights in a row (his complete UFC record stands at 13-4) he still got shit canned, why? He had just beat the hell out Brandon Vera.
Sylvia's biggest mistake was after he was mysteriously and prematurely let go from the UFC, is that he was enticed and got rung into signing-up with that fuck named Monte Cox. Does anyone here really know who Monte Cox is?
XENOPHON- August 22, 2011 at 6:03 am
I did see Freakonimcs on Netflix it was real good.
The Nipponese Sumo scene leaves a question. Does anyone think any other organization it any different with their big names or during big fights?
Thinking so would be naive in my opinion. There are many ways to manipulate and maintain rankings for propping up viewership, and delivering content that best lines the pockets.

Tim Sylvia relevant again and a top ten heavyweight?? yep, and all pigs cleared and ready for take off, seriously (shakes head in disbelief)
SethF- August 21, 2011 at 8:51 pm
Guys...I know it's fun to feed the trolls and all, but...

Tim Sylvia as a top ten heavyweight!? What, has James Toney retired from MMA competition?
Pen Fifteen- August 21, 2011 at 8:14 pm
And really, given that you refuse to acknowledge the shortcomings in your own argument, which have been pointed out to you repeatedly, I'd be happy to refer you to numerous sources that will help you understand the concepts of rhetoric and epistemology. Just post your email address, and watch the information flow forth.
Pen Fifteen- August 21, 2011 at 8:07 pm
XENO, let's put this in terms you can understand: we're both making speculative arguments about how well Tim Sylvia would fare against current UFC competition. So, at this point, it comes down to whose argument is more pursuasive. Do you see anyone siding with you? No, because your argument is terrible.
And why in the world do you think I'd disclose a single scintilla of personal information to you? Your desire to pursue the ad hominem line is completely paradigmatic of your inability to realize that you are not the radical provocateur you seem to view yourself as, but rather a fucking moron, as I've pointed out to you several times.
Zwhobs- August 21, 2011 at 8:06 pm
And he wins 70 in a row, doesn't mean UFC will take him back. Didn't he ask to leave UFC and out of his contract?
intercept440- August 21, 2011 at 7:55 pm
need i also mention it was at super heavywieght in all his last 6 fights?? that fat fuck cant even make weight in SF or the UFC.
he is done .. let it go homie ....let it go...
Zwhobs- August 21, 2011 at 7:47 pm
I'm not saying it is the only organization but strike force? Come on dog, give that a year and it's done. Japan is broke as fuck, so where? Shark fights or something? Cool, he can come back and be the champ of some d league org. Shamrock won Hella fights in his heyday, does that mean he's fuckin with the top 10 in 205 right now? Stop living in the past.
intercept440- August 21, 2011 at 7:42 pm
@xenon look bro at your own post, and the dates that all those things happened....thats a long ways from the current time period , who he may have beat in the past is completely irrevocable utterly factly irrelevant.. end of story.
the fight game has well progressed since then, sylvia couldnt stand with any current heavywieght in the top 15 period.
maybe even the top twenty.
thats my take and im sticking to it no matter what stats you throw up.
btw did you read freakonomics yet?
those sumos are fucking crooks
XENOPHON- August 21, 2011 at 7:42 pm
@Pig Pen Cunt,
I asked you once before, and you ducked the question, how old are you?
XENOPHON- August 21, 2011 at 7:38 pm
@Pig Pen,
Who gives a fuck if Rosa choked out 86 fighters in a row. Sylvia has only been "choked out" 3 times out of 36 fights.
I am about ready to demote your dumb ass to the "B" leagues.
XENOPHON- August 21, 2011 at 7:33 pm
There is nothing that says that Sylvia could not make his way back to the UFC, but he could go to Bellator, Strikeforce (as their ranks are dwindling) or any other international organization.
If you think the UFC is the only show in town, that's far from the truth. Today the are tied at the tit to FOX for about 9 years. Maybe good, but maybe not so good. That is yet to be seen.
And to point this out for the umpteenth time, FOX is not the only corporation with billions of dollars as a means for standing up competitive format.
Pen Fifteen- August 21, 2011 at 7:28 pm
Aaron Rosa choking out the most recent guy to beat Tim Sylvia has a hell of a lot more relevence to how Sylvia ranks against the current crop of UFC HWs than any of the 6-10 year old fights that you cite. If you can't figure that out, you are a fucking moron. Case close.
XENOPHON- August 21, 2011 at 7:14 pm
@Pen Fifteen
In August 2005 Sylvia defeated Telligman (by KO headkick), it ended his career.
In December 2004 Sylvia defeated Sims (by TKO punches).
In September 2002 Sylvia defeated Correira (by TKO corner stoppage).
During those years, nearly each of those fights was highly touted, if not marketed and shopped by gay Dana White and the UFC as the biggest fights of the era. Now you go on record trashing Joe Silva, the UFC, and some great historic fights - I'd like to see what all UFC fluffers have to say?
You post that Aaron Rosa (ranked at 23rd with/ 16-4 record) as the worst UFC HW, and point the fact that he choked out Abe Wagner (10-4).
Then you lead us believe Wagner, who had just destroyed Sylvia in his previous fight, that Rosa (who as only ever fought once in the UFC) matters?
Rosa never stood against Sylvia, and neither Rosa or Wagner ever held or defended a belt. Rosa and Sylvia never fought - so none of that shit matters. I see you chasing your tail over this.
It matters no difference that Rothwell (31-7) has won 15 of his 17 fights, or that his only 2 losses is to Velasquez (2009) and Arlovski (2008).
To Rothwell's credit in 2002 he fought 10 professional fights in 2002. He has bested, Soszynski twice, Fulton twice, and a long list of other professionals dating back to January 2001. What matters is that Sylvia beat Rothwell in 2001.
Sylvia has nothing he need prove to Ben Rothwell.
