I just stumbled across this and thought I'd post it up here. Apparently Tim's fighting somebody named Vince Lucero(who BTW is 19-18-1 and is winless in 7) in Minnesota this weekend on the same card as Jens Pulver and Travis Wiuff. Minnesota MMA: CFX/Extreme Challenge 170 Tickets On Sale Now!
I get that Sylvia's no longer a UFC HW champion and all, but SERIOUSLY Monte Cox??? This is the best they can do for him at this juncture? Tomato cans on a thirdrate card? No NYE in Japan let alone the Farce. I just don't understand the logic here aside from money, you'd think that a fighter of Tim's level would have gotten a little more publicity and this for all I know is the first I'm hearing of it. I can't think of the last time Josh Barnett or Andrei Arlovski got such a pointless fight with such little heralding. It's unfortunate and as always....what if he loses???
