Can Tim Sylvia make a real comeback?

Former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia is fighting

Former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia is fighting May 21, 2010 against strongman Mariusz Pudzianowski at Moosin MMA's God of Martial Arts event.

Those of you with HDNet can watch this Friday as former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia fights Abe Wagner on Titan FC's card.

You may remember Wagner as the guy on Season 10 of "The Ultimate Fighter" who got his head cut deeper than we've ever seen before.

You may also remember Sylvia from his heyday with the UFC. He's on a four-fight win streak, one of which was against Polish strongman Mariusz Pudzianowski. And of course, there was that 9-second knockout loss to former boxer Ray Mercer back in 2009.

But it does seem interesting that Sylvia keeps fighting and winning. Perhaps there's a chance he could make it back to the UFC one day. Maybe a rematch with Randy Couture? That would certainly draw some interest in pay-per-buys and ticket sales, don't you think?
