MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Full Lineup Set For Tim Sylvia’s Boxing Debut; Arlovski’s Postponed Due to KO


(Tim Sylvia — undisputed heavyweight champion of the Comfort Inn.)

Remember that thing about Tim Sylvia boxing a 50-year-old man? Yeah, that’s happening this Saturday, in the main event of "Adrenaline MMA III: Bragging Rights" at the Birmingham Jefferson Civic Center. MMA Junkie has the list of the MMA fights that will be supporting Sylvia/Mercer, and they’re only slightly less pointless than the show-closing boxing exhibition.

For instance, you’ve got Rich "No Love" Clementi taking on a guy named Sasuke Zapata, who isn’t quite established enough to have a fighter profile on Sherdog or mixedmartialarts.com. (You can get a shaky look at him here.) Then, there’s Jeremy Horn with his 104 career fights taking on the allegedly 5-0 Chris Davis, who might be one of these guys. Also, jiu-jitsu-champ-turned-MMA-fighter Roberto Traven takes on John Salter, who you might have heard of if you’re related to him. Anyway, I just don’t have the energy to cut-and-paste, so if you really want to look at the complete lineup for this show, click away. And speaking of boxing…


Andrei Arlovski, whose beep-beep-beep Tim Sylvia may have inadvertently tasted at some point, will have to wait even longer to make his pro boxing debut, due to a 60-day precautionary medical suspension resulting from his knockout loss to Brett Rogers at Strikeforce: Lawler vs. Shields. MMA Mania recaps Arlovski’s bad luck with the sweet science:

Arlovski will not be medically cleared in time to make his professional boxing debut on June 27 at The Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, on the undercard of the Victor Ortiz vs. Marcos Maidana fight on HBO…
 
While no injuries were reported, the suspension will remain in effect, forcing the popular Belarusian to postpone his boxing debut until later this year.
 
He was originally rumored to be making his debut last September in the opening fight on the Casamayor vs. Marquez card on an HBO pay-per-view (PPV) telecast against an unnamed opponent.
 
While that bout, as well as an attempt to get him on the undercard of the Paul Williams vs. Winky Wright event on April 11 didn’t materialize, Roach was eager to get him lined up after the Emelianenko fight, even mentioning a possible throwdown with current WBA heavyweight title holder Nikolai Valuev.
 
Fortunately cooler heads prevailed.

Maybe Slyvia and Arlovski could have a boxing rematch, the ultimate who-gives-a-shit bout...

When Hal's around, why are we wondering who's the biggest douche?

@ HAL... It's cool man, but you should apologize to him maybe.

Also, wasn't this the card that was rumored to have Lashley vs. Sapp?! That's not on there leading to my theory that one Mr. Robert Lashley is currently in Las Vegas, NV on Team Sugar.

OH YES SIR. I'M SORRY SIR. I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WAS THINKING. WILL YOU PLEASE FORGIVE ME MASTER SIR.

LOL

Be interesting to see Tim's duck footwork. He does have a ridiculous oddness about him.
straight face-tim sylvia vs fedor- June 10, 2009 at 3:03 pm
gosh. part of me was tempted to go see this. sad to say i live in birmingham alabama and for a second i thought, "maybe i should go check this out." tickets being over $3.00 ended that thought. i dont know, we'll see. to tell tim sylvia that my cage potato screen name is (straight face-tim sylvia vs fedor), might be worth it.

we'll see what happens.

It's hard to look extremely uncoordinated in a still photo but Sylvia pulls it off with ease.

Nice socks.
