Tim Sylvia has announced on his official website that he has been added to the UFC 81 “Breaking Point” fight card:
Just found out I’m fighting February 2nd, on the Super Bowl show in Las Vegas. I can’t say who I’m fighting yet, but I’ll let you all know as soon as I can.
Taking yesterday’s news that Randy Couture declined a title bout against Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira into account it would appear extremely likely that Sylvia will take on Nogueira at the February PPV event. The bout is expected to be promoted as a co-main event alongside Brock Lesnar’s UFC debut against former champion Frank Mir.
