Rumors are circulating that Tim Sylvia will face Ken Shamrock in a superfight at UFS 2: “Vindication”, a small promotion in Houston, Texas.Their inaugural event in July featured both Ricco Rodriguez and Mark Kerr.
Could it be true? Why would Tim Sylvia agree to fight Ken Shamrock when his last four bouts have come against Randy Couture, Brandon Vera, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, and Fedor Emelianenko? Has anyone ever taken such a huge step down in competition in just one fight as going from Fedor to Ken Shamrock? If the rumor proves to be true, it baffles my mind.
Sylvia’s five losses have come against Frank Mir, Andrei Arlovski, Randy Couture, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Fedor Emelianenko. That’s a who’s who list of top heavyweights on the planet.
