Former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia might be making another big move soon--to the land of the Rising Sun.Sylvia's
manager, Monte Cox, confirmed to MMAInsider that Japanese promotions
Dream and Sengoku have expressed interest in importing the tree-limbed
fighter. No agreements have been signed, but negotiations are ongoing.Sylvia's
non-exclusive deal with Affliction allows the move, although Cox says
he would also like to see Sylvia face off with Paul Buentello or Roy
Nelson on Affliction's January card--i.e., someone a little less lofty
than Fedor Emelianenko--to lay the groundwork for a comeback.Save
for a few marquee names, Dream and Sengoku's heavyweight divisions are
paper thin. If Sylvia's in the mood for sushi, he might do some serious
damage in Japan.
