Tim Sylvia is a total putz.

About three years ago, one of his friends and training partners, Ben Rothwell, lost by submission to Dan Christison in an event in Atlantic City. Later that year, Dan appeared on Season 2 of The Ultimate Fighter, upon which he lost in his only fight, to Seth Petruzelli.

Right after the show in which that fight aired (it had actually taken place about three months earlier), Sylvia does this interview trashing Christison - obviously planned and premeditated.

Well when Sylvia defended his UFC heavyweight title against Randy Couture at UFC 68, guess who helped Couture train for that fight, which Couture won by unanimous decision? None other than Dan Christison - who, at 6'8", was of invaluable help to Randy in preparing to face the 6'9" Sylvia.

Gotcha!
