"Refs need to know the fighters. Did he see my fight with Andrei Arlovski – the second one – I got dropped, got up, and KO’d him. The Randy Couture fight I got dropped and fought for 25 minutes. It was stopped way too early… It was bull****. (And) the sad part is the ref told the promoter and my corner he was sorry because he knew he made a mistake and stopped it a little early.... I still love this sport and always will.... I will never fight at Super Heavyweight again. I fight much better at 265 so from here on out that’s what I am going to fight at."

-- Look out South Beach, 311-pound former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia alerts FiveOuncesOfPain.com that he is sick of pushing around an extra 45 pounds after losing to Abe Wagner via technical knockout (strikes) just 32 seconds into their main event fight at Titan Fighting Championships 16 this past weekend. The "Maine-iac" blames a bad diet, as well as a bum knee, for his sloth-like performance. Oh, the referee who stopped the fight "early" also contributed to Sylvia's first loss in more than a year. Sounds like a perfect storm, eh? The police officer in training does bring up a good point, however, describing his ability to eventually recover from damage sustained inside the cage. Frankie Edgar he is not (see Mercer, Ray), but in 35 fights Sylvia has only been stopped twice via strikes (Mercer and Wagner) and once via forearm snappage (Frank Mir). Should "Timmay" have been allowed to continue against Wagner or did the referee ultimately do him a big favor now and in the future by stopping the fight when he did? See for your self right here. Keep in mind that the loss snapped a four-fight win streak, as well as dashed any plans of a return to the UFC in the foreseeable future.

Effin' rights, T-man.

You got robbed like a pension cheque cashin' grandmother.

Get in shape and get back to the top!

Oh, and learn how to block an overhand right for crissakes.

You ask too much.

Thats like asking Rampage to check a leg kick, it just won't happen.

You can teach an old dog new tricks. I think.

In the fight game you can teach an old dog a new trick - but they forget it the instant the action gets turned up in the cage.
