Fighters Only Magazine has the scoop:

Former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia would like to appear in the next season of hit MTV show Bully Beatdown.

Sylvia (24-6) wants the show to let him face two of his childhood tormentors. He says he would donate the prize money to charity.

"I was bullied all through high school, where I was never a big guy. I grew and became a big guy. I still have a chip on my shoulder for all those assholes who picked on me and beat me up," he told Fighters Only recently.

As improbable as it seems now, Sylvia says he was "picked on a lot" in school. He also had a traumatic youth due to alcoholism in the family home.

"If everything goes right, I will be on the second season of Bully Beatdown. What I want to pitch to them is, bring in one or two bullies that bullied me, and what I want to do is take the money - the ten or twenty thousand dollars you win - and donate it to charity, I don’t need it," he revealed.

You'd think that the success Tim has achieved in MMA would be the best revenge against his tormentors. Even with his dramatic knockout loss to Ray Mercer, he has a lot to be proud of. With few discernible natural athletic abilities beyond sheer size, he managed to become a UFC champion with a 24-6 MMA record in MMA. That's nothing to sneeze at.

However, this revelation doesn't look good for Tim's future MMA, because it shows that his eye is off the ball. When an MMA fighter 1) assumes he can waltz into multi-million dollar big-time boxing matches with no effort and 2) cares about going on a silly TV show to even scores from decades ago, he's just not focused on moving back up in the heavyweight division.
