Sylvia/Mercer Boxing Freak Show to Headline Adrenaline III


("Well I might be an asshole, but I’m the asshole who just killed this bobcat, so what’s up now?")

MMA Junkie has confirmed the ugly rumors: Tim Sylvia will be strapping on some boxing gloves to take on Ray Mercer in the headlining match of Adrenaline III (May 30th; Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort, Atlantic City). Though the bout was originally proposed as an MMA match between the former UFC heavyweight champ and the dude who got choked out by Kimbo Slice, Sylvia’s manager Monte Cox had this to say:

"We changed and thought it would be a lot more interesting in boxing. In boxing, who knows who is going to win. Mercer just beat a guy who is 30-2. He was ranked fifth in Europe and Mercer just beat him…I don’t care if he’s 47 (years old). He’s been boxing his whole life, won an Olympic gold medal, went to split decision with Lennox Lewis. Believe me, he’s going to hit hard. Tim’s going to have a hard time."

Here’s the problem as I see it: There aren’t too many people who want to watch Tim in an MMA match anymore, let alone competing in a less-interesting sport, against a guy who was a champion in 1991. (Though don’t get us wrong, Mercer’s a boxer and Sylvia isn’t, so this actually could turn into another high-profile, embarrassing loss for the Maine-iac.) But honestly, why headline an MMA card with such a meaningless exhibition? Does this mean that Sylvia, who has lost three out of his last four fights, might be transitioning to a new sport? Could we be that lucky?

Well, not so fast. Sylvia’s fight against Ken Shamrock may have fallen apart, but Cox is angling to get Timmy on Affliction’s third fight card against Paul Buentello, as long as it’s not too close to May 30th. Affliction III looks like it’ll go down in June, with Emelianenko vs. Barnett headlining.

Since 1990, cougars have killed 10 human beings in the USA. Thank you Tim.

2ndamendmentrights seem to talk an awful lot about cock and hunting in the same context...yet another reason to abolish hunting for sport. Oh, and as for being "educated" and "knowing what I am talking about", I am a Professional Environmental Engineer, with a background in conservation. So I have a full and capable understanding of the dynamics of different species and how they interact, and what are proper/logical methods to deal with wildlife & human interaction. Hunting for sport is not a method of conservation, period. It is a political issue, that has no scientific basis whatsoever. However from what you are saying, in your circles, hunting is somehow connected to cock. Fascinating.

That response is comical. All your "arguments" are subjective. You are so damaged that it's really sad.

And now that 2NDAMENDMENTRIGHTS is done fucking his cousins, you can give him the daily blowjob.

"Hey 2ndAmendmentRights. I love it when dirtbags like you use animal control as a validation for sport hunting. First off, animal control is a bullshit concept. If we truly need "animal control", then we should be leaving that in the capable hands of the conservation & wildlife professionals, and not some drunk ugly fucktards with shotguns."

Those "capable hands" are the ones who Sylvia (and all hunters) went to for permission to hunt. He asked and paid for the right to do their job for them, but its nice to see someone pro-bureaucracy.

"Second, mountain lions killing humans is not an excuse to hunt them."

Really? Seems like a good one to me.

"Remember something, those mountain lions were in that region LONG before your sorry ass was in San Diego. You are in THEIR territory."

Do you know what male lions do when they reach adulthood? They wander off into some older male's territory, kill him and any kids and take over his territory. Who was there first has no significance in the animal world, why do you think it should matter to us, if we're just animals too?

"If they attack you, do what you need to do to protect yourself. Simple. And if you kill them, or they kill you, that is nature."

You're right, if I'm walking in the woods and get attacked by a mountain lion I should calmly walk back to my car, retrieve my handgun which I had to go through lots of redtape to get, unlock the gunlock, and then defend myself. That's a much better idea than controlling the population so there are fewer mountain lions starving to death wandering into urban areas which they would normally be afraid of and attacking people.

"Just like if you are swimming in the ocean, you are at risk of getting attacked by sharks. Perhaps we should start to hunt sharks for the fear they might attack us?! Yeah, that's what we should do. We gotta control those motherfuckin sharks. But let's not stop there, those sumbitch bees and mosquitos bite my sorry ass, so we need to figure out a way to irradicate them bastards too! Come to think of it, I had an encounter with a rattlesnake in the desert a few years ago and it scared the bejesus out of me, so let's wipe them fuckers all out. Then me and all my fucktard friends can feel safe and secure as we chew on our Skoal, drink moonshine, and fuck sheep."

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the "slippery slope" fallacy, this is why gay people can't adopt children.

"You want to hunt an animal, make it fair. Naked against naked. His natural weapons against yours."

How about if I just give the mountain lion a gun instead?

Your argument is utterly stupid. What is man's natural weapon? His ability to make and use tools (yay opposable thumbs!) like guns for example. Using a gun to hunt is no different than chimps using a stick to "fish" for grub.

Hunters who hunt but don't eat their hunt are the same as Al-Qaeda. They all need to be put in their place.

@ anyone defending hunting...

Killing for food and killing for personal fun are two different things idiot...

He didn't kill a cat to eat it, he did it because he is a failure and needs to murder defenseless animals (much like yourself) to make himself feel better about his complete waste of a life.

Get raped by a large bear.

@ JPFighter

and believe me i know a thing or too when it comes to sucking cock. after im done hunting dear, my buddys and i have an outdoor orgy. no colored people though. the person who shot the lease amount of dear has to give blowjobs to everyone else. and sometimes i even miss the dear on purpose just so i can have the chance to suck off my buddys while they drink there beer. they love it. i love it. and we use every peace of the dear two. i even use the hide of the dear to help me get off because it stays warm for awhile. and we use the bones as dilldos and take pictures of the dead dear. so u better learn a thing or to about actual hunting before u comment.

Why is it everday I log onto the internet and hope to see the headline "MMA fighter Tim Sylvia critically injured with severe facial injuries while hunting with Dick Cheney"

When I saw this story, my heart raced for a split second. How anti-climatic. Sigh.

Thats a cougar not a bob cat, but I hope Timmeey gets beat by Mercer
2NDAMENDMENTRIGHTS- February 26, 2009 at 11:10 am
JPFighter dont tell the wildlife pro's how to do their job they dont go telling you how to suck a better cock.
2NDAMENDMENTRIGHTS- February 26, 2009 at 11:06 am
JPFighter your comments show exactly how fucking retarded you are. You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. I have never seen a drunk hunter nor have i had a drink while hunting, after the hunt is another story. No one is trying to wipe out a species. You are a pussy who talks big but wouldn't do a fucking thing. the wildlife professionals have done their jobs why do you think the tag was issued to tim to dispatch that animal? Because there was a need for it to help properly maintain healthy animal populations. Do some research into a topic before you make uneducated rants about why hunting is bad. i agree i wouldn't go lion hunting, deer is more my thing. me and my family eat every bit of meat. and i also use the hide. by saying im some drunk asshole with a shotgun and lumping me in to that stereotype of some dukes of hazard good ol boy, makes me want to say you are some rainbow flag waving, affliction shirt wearing, washington post reading, bleeding heart BITCH. So it isn't your thing to hunt, SO WHAT! Who the fuck are you to judge what is moral and immoral? Stick to subjects you know actual facts about, And not whatever just spews from your shit covered mouth.
lost in ok- February 26, 2009 at 10:34 am
Why would any self respecting MMA fighter transition from a sport in which they were once a champion to boxing to fight an unranked and old opponent? That's right Sylvia, like everyone else, doesn't have any respect for the Maine-iac. If he loses this fight, especially if he gets knocked out, he will never have another headling fight in any top flight fight organization. Sylvia and his managers clearly realize that his poor conditioning, age, and his public image as a douchebag have killed his fighting career so why not sacrifice all dignity gained by holding the UFC belt by selling yourself for money. He will star in a commercial for baby diapers dressed as a turd in the future, you just wait.
