UFC 81: Big Nog vs Tim Sylvia for the heavyweight title
The UFC subtly announced tonight that Tim Sylvia will fight Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 81 for the INTERIM heavyweight title.
Now I'm all fucking confused and thought this interim title bullshit was over and they go and try to sneak this tiny IMPORTANT fucking detail past everyone. I wouldn't know why in the fuck there would need to be an interim heavyweight title unless for some reason the UFC feels that Randy Couture is going to come out of his resignation/retirement. I'm just not quite understanding this shit anymore. I thought we could wash our hands of all this Randy Couture/UFC drama after Randy publicly turned down a fight with Big Nog. But no, just more god damn questions. Maybe this has to do with a championship clause in their contract that the UFC is going to try to use as leverage when this thing inevitably hits the legal system.
