Manager and Adrenaline MMA promoter Monte Cox is currently in talks to have former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia take on retired 46 year old boxer Ray Mercer in the main event of an Adrenaline MMA fightcard set for May 30th in Atlantic City, NJ.
Mercer previous MMA experience, involved being ground and pounded in an exhibition fight with Kimbo Slice back in 2007.
Has Tim Sylvia fallen this far since leaving the UFC? First he fought the P4P toughest heavyweight fighter in the world, Fedor Emelianenko last year at Affliction ‘Banned”. Now he’s looking for payday by taking on a retired former boxing champion with no MMA experience what so ever.
