Completely Unnecessary Rematch Alert: Wes Sims vs. Tim Sylvia II


(Sylvia vs. Sims @ Superbrawl 38, 12/12/04. You had me at that intro music.)

According to Wes Sims‘s manager Ken Pavia, the A-Hole Show will try to follow up his paycheck-collection at Strikeforce: Miami by taking on Tim Sylvia at an Adrenaline MMA event in Youngstown, Ohio, on March 20th. The bout will be held under special rules, in which spectators will be allowed to throw peanuts at the fighters during the match. Just kidding, but with both men drifting near the low points of their careers, it’s hard to look at this meeting as anything but a freak show — even if it’ll surely be sold as a grudge match between two extremely dangerous tall UFC vets.

Sylvia and Sims fought once before in Superbrawl, following Sims’s 0-3 stretch in the UFC and Sylvia’s loss via broken arm to Frank Mir. It was an easy mauling for the Maine-iac, who won by TKO in a minute and a half. In his last appearance, Sylvia rebounded from a humiliating knockout loss against Ray Mercer (and snapped a three-fight losing streak) by scoring a first-round TKO over Jason Riley at Adrenaline 4 in September. Sims most recently put on a ton of weight and lost to Bobby Lashley, following an exhibition loss to Justin Wren on The Ultimate Fighter 10 last year. Is it even worth asking who ya got?

I would rather watch Tim Sylvia fight himself, oh wait we've had about 5 years of that .......nevermind. Seriously WTF is up with the promoters, Tito vs Chuck for the 100th time, Shamrock vs Miletich why not just open up a seniors division??

Let's stop skating around the real topic here, peeps. You know it, I know it, we all know it, but everyone's too embarassed to say it. So OK, I'll do it.

Since these two jokers are so universally loathed, the only thing left for them is to be forced to ass fuck each other into submission. This contest can only end in death, and will be held in a temporary octagon with no visual access, that will be burned immediately after the match. When the winner emerges, he'll be taken by a sniper in the rafters, Last Boy Scout style.

The media will say, "Well, that was pretty shitty." The global MMA community will pause for 6 seconds to reflect on these events, then happily get on with life in the knowledge that we won't have to hear about these douchebags anymore.

I'm just sayin'...

They could call the event "Battle of the Bulge II" and while they're at it go track down Sam Hoger to take on Roy Nelson (since Dana hates him anyway) for the first UFC/Strikeforce co promotion.

They could have a competition to see who has the biggest beer gut and sausage tits. That's the only competition between these two that could be competitive.

Your in for the fight of your life

SUPER TALL!!!

Anybody else catch that they came out to the same song because neither wanted the other to have it? I LOL'd.
aaronb- February 2, 2010 at 12:45 pm
I'm just saying.

There are maybe 10-15 heavyweights in the world that would expect to do 2-4 or better against the Monson,couture,vera, nog,fedor,Mercer in a row type of schedule.

Mercer almost shouldn't count because it was supposed to be a boxing match.

anabolic steroids.

Whoever wins, I predict its going to be by Princess Leia Jabba Choke.

Assuming that both of these men don't collapse in on themselves like dying stars first.

Wes "The Project" Sims?
I've seen projects with better results at a kindergarten science fair.
Sabado Gigante- February 2, 2010 at 10:06 am
I'd rather watch that stupid Kardashian show.

Even is Mercer was his only loss, he would still be hated.
The guy did not just fuck it up for himself, but for all of MMA. Why did they HAD to pick him for that fight.
aaronb- February 2, 2010 at 9:24 am
I don't get the Sylvia hate? Guy was UFC champ 3 years ago and other than Mercer hasn't had a bad loss.

Couture
Nog
Fedor

Beat Brandon Vera and Jeff Monson in that timeframe.

Is he goofy as hell? sure

Could he beat 90% of the Heavyweights out there still? Probably yes

Sims couldn't even get past the first round of noobs on TUF. If this turns out to be anything less than a squash match, then I'd say Sylvia's done for good.

Best case scenario: Sims trains his ass off, destroys Silvia, Silvia retires, Sims gets signed by WWE.

And I thought the only fight to not care about this year would be Liddell Ortiz 3 ... I was wrong.
frndlylion- February 2, 2010 at 8:41 am
Both of these guys are irrelevant. I think Cyborg could take either one of them.

I got a bucket of fried chicken.

am I the only one that hates Ken "the Pav" Pavia?
J-Dog- February 2, 2010 at 8:02 am
I pick the tall doughy guy
reddemon3- February 2, 2010 at 7:53 am
Wes Sims and Silva together in a zoo. we can throw peanuts at them all day lol
los_Hated- February 2, 2010 at 7:41 am
Throwing peanuts? Next match would probably be throwing natural light bottles..
I think he did "kick his little pussy ass"
Double knock out or retirement for both would be good...Fuk even if both join a yoga cult and never fight again.....
ReX13- February 2, 2010 at 7:26 am
Agree with RearNakedPoke--if there's any way that both of these guys could lose that would be great.
Evil Jim Norton- February 2, 2010 at 7:05 am
Wha...

The hell does Sims have down the front of his shorts? It looks like the head of a snoopy doll poking out there. Damn.
