03:07 PM ET 05.14 | Former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia still yearns to get back into the Octagon. He is slated to fight Tony Johnson at the end of the month, and is still tied for the most UFC heavyweight title defenses. "Well I'm 37, so my ultimate goal was to be done around 40, 41 at the very latest," said Sylvia. "No one has beat my record, yet. Randy (Couture) and I have tied it. I don't know what is going to happen in the future of the UFC heavyweight division. Ideally I would like to finish out my career where it started and that is in the UFC. There's great fights out there for me and I'd like to put on a great show for the fans on the biggest stage there is, and that's obviously the UFC."
