Former UFC champion Tim Sylvia didn’t have a feel-good moment this past weekend when the UFC announced Michael Bisping’s Hall of Fame introduction.
In fact, the 45-year-old “The Maine-iac” felt quite the opposite as he watched the promotion introduce Bisping as the newest entrant into the UFC Hall of Fame during last weekend’s UFC London card. (via Twitter)
“I can’t help but laugh when I see stuff like this,” Sylvia wrote in response to a Big John McCarthy tweet. “When Frank Shamrock, Jens Pulver, and myself are all out here like WTF, really?”
Through the years, Sylvia has had a contentious relationship with White. That ended in his release after losing to Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 81 in 2008.
Still, Sylvia insists that the HOF is nothing more than a ‘popularity contest’ filled with a bunch of ‘yes’ men and women.
“Everyone knows Dana is a d-ck,” Sylvia said. “UFC HOF is a popularity contest on who kisses Dana’s ass and is a ‘yes sir’ to him. I never took his sh-t and never will. If I could get him in a gym with me I would slap his teeth down his throat. For me and all the other fighters.”
