Moosin Update: Tim Sylvia Has Slimmed Down to 305 Pounds

(If they were the same guy, this would be a fantastic ad for Trimspa. Photos courtesy of Sherdog.)

Last June, we saw Tim Sylvia‘s alarming weight of 310.6 pounds as proof that he didn’t take his fight against Ray Mercer as seriously as he should have. Well you all can put your concerns to rest now, because according to yesterday’s Moosin: God of Martial Arts weigh-ins, the Maine-iac has hacked off a full 5.6 pounds since that brutal loss, suggesting that maybe he’s leaving that last rib on the plate when he goes out and orders three slabs of ribs. We’re proud of you, buddy. In all seriousness, this isn’t a physique competition, and Mariusz Pudzianowski didn’t really impress anybody in his last fight, which took place just two weeks ago. But Tim’s unwillingness to get below 300 pounds (and his doughy, Wes Sims-like build) may be a sign that his heart isn’t really into training these days. After the jump: Full weigh-in results for tonight’s Moosin show, plus a video of Roxy Modafferi and Tara LaRosa getting all chummy before their fight. Have you made your Moosin picks on FightPicker yet?

There Back! In a movie based real life events, Arnold Schwarzenegger in his best roll yet stepping in as former strong man Marious Pudzianowski. And former UFC champ Tim Sylvia, played by nonother then Danny Devito. Universal Studios bring you…..Twins 2.

@ MR_Mis - +100 for that!

Pudyankskidooski looks different when he's not all lathered up with baby oil, somewhat more pink and fleshy, as if he was carved out of Spam.

I think Fedor actually permanently damaged Tim's brain when he battered him senseless (the choke was just for show-offs). It's sad to see a middle aged man dodder about in his adult diapers. Take him back to the turkey farm.

@ That_guy

save your empathy for Sims, dude. That's one muhfuh who's gonna be living under a bridge again, real soon. He got choked out by a rookie on TUF 10 in less than a minute. I think he lasted 37 seconds.

Horror Fighter - latest reports say that Tim trains exclusively at an unspecified all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet in downtown Maryland.

Rumors are flying all over the place on this fight, ranging from Ken Shamrock cornering for Big Pud to Shamrock being the Special Guest referee.

Tim looks like mayonnaise wrapped in saran wrap

as if either of them stood a chance vs Ken Shamrock

That was damn disrespectful towards Wes Sims. He may be a giant talentless buffoon but he wasn't as fat and soft looking as Tim. I see no muscles at all on Timmy.

If that's accurate that Puds is 273, that means he's dropped almost 27 pounds in a couple months or not less. I sure he's strong as hell, but I won't be surprised to see him go down even more, possibly in the low 260's or mid 250's. Some of his strength will obviously go with that. He's got a very short window for capitalizing on the size if he steps into fights outside a fairgrounds-size promotion and is gonna need to put together a striking game before it's too late. The lifestyle and supplements needed to maintain the strongman physique are behind him and he'll soon be "a big son of a bitch", not an "OMG freak of nature". I like the guy, but pulling a bus and getting punched in the face are two different things.

(aren't they?...)

horror fighter - no, Tim ATE the Miletich camp!
Robocop Didnt Tap- May 21, 2010 at 10:13 am
Two observations...
-Tim Sylvia does look a little baked in his photo. With the way his arms are held and the look on his face, I can just imagine him thinking "whoah, I'm totally floating dude!"
-Pudz reminds me of Joe Swanson from Family Guy for some reason...minus the paralysis.

Girls are weird.

I bet Tim strikes the same pose every day when he gets out of the shower looking for his nub.
Crap Factory- May 21, 2010 at 9:26 am
Now I get to have beers with LB tonight instead of watching him get his ass kicked.
Horror Fighter- May 21, 2010 at 9:16 am
Does Tim still train at the Miletich camp?
Viva Hate- May 21, 2010 at 8:50 am
Damn Massachusetts for once again shitting on everyones fun! I really was interested to see how Byers could do, he was fun to watch slug in the NHL and lets face it, Butterbean is no Fedor. I know it was a silly charity fight but it was going to add some fun.

The peepee comment reminded me about the fact that Timmy was able to bang that incredibley hot ( fake as well...and obviously retarted..but most models are) skank that Arlovski was dating. Just goes to show you that money/power crazy bitches have no scruples...and no logic. The bitch might as well started fucking the belt...cuz that's what she was there for....ooooh shiny! Yes I know that this comment would have been more pertinent in 2007.
Kicktothegroin- May 21, 2010 at 8:45 am
Is it just me or does Pudzianowski look like a roidier, less orange version of the "Situation"?
ytrebil- May 21, 2010 at 8:43 am
This is going to be the most boring, gassed fight since McSweeney Vs Shivers… Strong man to win by LnP.
Crap Factory- May 21, 2010 at 8:37 am
The Butterbean vs. Lyndon Byers fight was canceled. The Massachusetts Athletic Commission wouldn't sanction it.
DangadaDang- May 21, 2010 at 8:37 am
Will someone tell Morgan Spurlock that we all saw "Super Size Me" and he can stop living off Big Mac's and shame now?
ReX13- May 21, 2010 at 8:18 am
PingPong and Jimbo>> +1

Joedirt- May 21, 2010 at 8:17 am
I'm thinking i might toss a $20 on Pud... just because. Tim Sylvia NEVER fails to disappoint. Now if it were a chicken wing eating contest I may bet the other way.

Nice udders Tim, you put the Moo in Moosin.

This made laugh out loud. If only there was a shorter way of typing that. If only...
