Maybe Jens Pulver, Rich Franklin and everyone else in the MMA world was right…Tim Sylvia shouldnt have accepted the fight against Ray Mercer. Dude should have listened. After getting KOd in 9 seconds by 48 year old boxer Ray Mercer (dude has that old guy strength) now Tom Atencio, master chief of Affliction and fighter in The Ultimate Chaos (best name ever for anything), has pulled Timmy from the Affliction 3 card…or as I like to call it, the end of the world. Bummer for Tim Sylvia (and his hot girlfriend). Dude still has a career left in MMA but at least not with Affliction (or UFC).
On the bright side of all of this nonsense, Atencio said that Gilbert Yvel will most likely replace Tim Sylvia in the August 1st fight against Paul Buentello. Gilbert Yvel. The only dude that I know (I don’t know him personally…maybe things are better that way) that has been disqualified for attacking a ref, eye gouging and you can’t forget the classic biting of an opponent. Yvel is a posterboard for contemporary cannibalism and I respect the hell out of him (you pretty much are forced into it). Buentello vs. Yvel is going to be an absolute war. Both guys fight like they’ve never heard of ‘a ground game’ so its going to be a race to see who can survive on their feet with the fewest amount of brain cells active. Rawesome. [Source]
