Bad Indian food, maybe? Check out the 0:16 mark to see him swallow it back down. Lovely.
Oh, and about Timbo’s “huge news”: Yeah, it actually was pretty huge. Here are the brass tacks:
— Tim Sylvia has left the UFC in a “mutual separation” and is officially a free agent.
— He has signed a non-exclusive contract with Adrenaline MMA (formerly M-1 Global). Between his fights with Adrenaline, events in Japan (likely referring to Sengoku and DREAM), and “the Affliction show,” he expects to fight 5-6 times per year.
— Adrenaline plans on holding its first event on June 14th in Chicago. Ben Rothwell has also signed to the organization.
— Notable Tim quote #1: “I’m out of the UFC for a couple years, and maybe I go back. I want to end my career in the UFC…Right now, this is the best thing for me.”
— Notable Tim quote #2: “There’s a guy out there named Fedor who I’d like to fight, and I think the only way that’s gonna happen is by me leaving the UFC.”
Holy crap! Can you imagine if Tim got a crack at Fedor before Randy Couture? It seems a little shocking that Dana White would let Tim leave the UFC without putting up a fight (Sylvia had one match left on his current contract), but maybe this is just an elaborate scheme to screw Randy. Dana, you brilliant asshole!
