"He’s not the best pound-for-pound fighter, not even close, but he’s one of the four or five best heavyweights...But we all have to thank him for getting rid of Tim Sylvia. He’d been stinking out the joint the last couple of years and Fedor did everyone a favor by beating him so easily and getting rid of him."

-- Dana White, in a new Kevin Iole column, thanking Emelianenko for "getting rid" of Sylvia. Interestingly, Emelianenko somewhat corroborates White's assessment by saying he doesn't consider himself the top pound-for-pound fighter in the world either.

Oh yeah, so much for Sylvia returning to the Octagon to finish out his career. I suspect White might be holding his tongue in the event Arlovski returns, however.

UPDATE by Kid Nate: I went ahead and added a pic from Tim Sylvia's stinkiest moment ever in the Octagon.
