Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Tim Sylvia Is Still a Fatty Boom-Boom

Tonight at the Historic Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas, former UFC heavyweight champ Tim Sylvia will take a break from almost suplexing mental ladies to face TUF 10 castmember Abe Wagner in the super-heavyweight main event of Titan Fighting Championship 16. Weigh-ins were yesterday, and Timmy punished the scales at 311 pounds, which is basically what he weighed for his ill-fated bout against Ray Mercer in June 2009. Back then, we took his weight as a sign that he wasn’t taking his opponent or training seriously. But just look at that grin in the photo above. Sylvia is owning his girth. It’s where he wants to be. 

We can’t seem to find full weigh-in results for the event, but we will say that Abe Wagner is looking mad beefy, and appears to be a hell of a lot more serious about the whole thing than his "aw fuck it" opponent. The Titan FC 16 main card will be broadcast on HDNet tonight at 10 p.m. ET. The full lineup — which also features UFC vets Rich Clementi, Drew McFedries, and Jason High — is after the jump…

Tim Sylvia vs. Abe Wagner
Jason High vs. Rudy Bears
Drew McFedries vs. Gary Tapusoa 
Rich Clementi vs. Aaron Derrow
Alonzo Martinez vs. Deryck Ripley 
Bobby Cooper vs. Drew Dober
Anthony Gutierrez vs. Jacob Akin 
Jon Hollis vs. Brian Phillips
Tony Cardello vs. Billy Thomas
Mac Bailey vs. Mirsad Bektic
Julian Marquez vs. Jason Perrotta

Criminals of Milan,

If Officer Sylvia is threatening arrest, just run. He will not catch you.

Sincerely yours,

The Obvious

Fatty Boom Boom, why does that always make me laugh? and Roy Nelson called, he wants to know which buffet Tim's been training at

Timmy looks like the ugly frat boy at a male auction. I can almost hear the auctioneer say "do i hear fifty cents anybody?"

The scales: the only thing Tim Sylvia can punish these days
Ufo-Guy- January 28, 2011 at 12:58 pm
He didn't punish those scales, he bent them.

I was going to ask if that was an empty buffet in the background of the Titan banner before implying that that explained Tim Sylvia's unusual smile, but I know you all expect classy, high brow humor from me.

A right hook from Sylvia will give you diabetes.

Punish the scales he did CP. I concurrrrrrrrrrrrrrr......
Sniffer-Piffits- January 28, 2011 at 9:16 am
That smile doesn't mean he is where he wants to be with his weight. He's like a baby, it means he's shitting his pants again.

Not that he's on track to make it back talent-wise...But you'd think that a former UFC Heavyweight champ would know that as long as he continues to push damn near 300lbs and fight in the Superheavy division, he'll never get back to the UFC...or even a shot at Strikeforce. Moron.

Timmy didn't even take his shirt off? Someone must be embarrassed of their bitch tits.

Rex are you a midwest/KC guy? I live and fight in the KC area. Memorial Hall is a kick ass venue.
Numa- January 28, 2011 at 8:59 am
Can't wait to see my boy Abe win this fight and get back on track!
intercept440- January 28, 2011 at 8:17 am
he's one cheeseburger away from turning into a Q-pee doll

Numa- January 28, 2011 at 8:15 am
Abe weighed in at 265.2
T.Bone- January 28, 2011 at 8:03 am
Is that an ass or a dimple on his face? Jesus. You can use a thighmaster on that thing.

That smirk on Tim's face says, "One of you lucky girls might just get the chance to come back to my room after the fight if you play your cards right. I don't have a championship belt anymore, but I could wear my police badge, and it doesn't get in the way as much."

What the fuck, BusinessWeek's power 100, didnt have 1 mma fighta on there list.
Are you shittin me, golfers and snowboarders and race car drivers are betta athletes than these guys.
Somebody needs to enforce mandatory drug testin at BusinessWeek's office cause there is a lot of crack bein smoked.
On topic, sylvia may be internin at there office cause this dudes fuckin out of his mind if he thinks hes shootin for anther ufc run lookin like that. Not that fat will hold him back but it shows a lack of motivation and disipline.

@se7ensenses: I wonder if they make belts, too.
se7ensenses- January 28, 2011 at 7:27 am
His shirt is apt.

They're not laughing with you Tim, they're laughing at you

I don't need no instructions to know how to ROCK!
RearNakedSpoon- January 28, 2011 at 7:12 am
hahaha on MMA Junkie radio the other day the organiser of Titan said he expected Sylvia to weigh in around 285 and that he was "on his way" to get back into the heavyweight division. Good luck Timmy if this is you putting effort into reducing weight.

If Overeem is genetically gifted Sylvia must be the exact opposite.

And now introducing... Tim "The Gummy Bear" Sylvia!!!
