Tim Sylvia on UFC: “besides the Top 5, if you put me in there I’ll beat them all.”

Former UFC heavyweight champion, Tim Sylvia says he would be willing to fight for $5,000 if he could have a chance at winning “Knockout of the Night” honors, adding beside the top 5 heavyweights he can beat all the UFC has to offer.

Slyvia, speaking via MMAFighting, said:

“Have me come in, put me against Stefan Struve, Cheick Kongo, (Matt) Mitrione. I’ll fight anybody. I don’t care. And see if I can hang with them. If I can’t, I tell you what, it’s going to be a hell of a fight. If the UFC comes to me with an offer for $5,000 and $5,000 I would take it. I know that’s very entry level money but I’d have an opportunity to win Knockout of the Night and make $50,000.”

“Right now you have three studs: Alistair, Junior and Cain, and the rest are OK. There’s also Frank Mir and Shane Carwin, but besides the Top 5, if you put me in there I’ll beat them all.”
