Tim Sylvia Makes Comments Calling Brock Lesnar A "Baby"
Posted by Randy Harrison on 01.04.2008
Does "The Maine-iac" have an axe to grind lately or what?
After his already scathing comments about Fedor Emelianenko released earlier this week Tim Sylvia was apparently not done talking. The former UFC Heavyweight Champion had plenty to say when asked about Brock Lesnar by Steve Cofield of ESPN Radio.
"I've trained with Brock. I think Frank Mir's gonna submit him. He's a baby. Don't kick him because he'll get hurt. He's a hell of a wrestler man, the guy can wrestle and he's strong, but he can't punch and he can't get kicked. And he don't know how to kick. He can only go straight forward. I think Mir will submit him," Sylvia said, "I think Mir has what it takes to submit him. They could be lining this up between Frank Mir and myself down the road. They tried to [set up the] fight when I was supposed to fight Randy, but the Nevada State Athletic Commission would not sanction it. They thought I was too good for him. If he wins this fight I don't think they could say he's not good enough to fight me anymore."
Sylvia and Lesnar are both scheduled for UFC 81 with Sylvia squaring off against Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira for the vacant UFC Heavyweight Championship and the aforementioned Lesnar/Mir showdown.
