Former 2 time UFC heavyweight champion Tim “The Maniac” Sylvia went up against Jason Riley last night at Adrenaline 4 pulling out a 1st round TKO. Some would be impressed by this because Tim has lost his last 4/5 fights leading up to this fight. Sylvia had even said that if he does not get through Jason Riley, then it was time to hang up the gloves. But how did he preform?

Well, where is Brett Rogers when you need him so like Kimbo Slice (after his fight with James Thompson), he could also call Sylvias performance “garbage”. Although he secured a first round TKO, I wasn’t impressed at anything Sylvia had to offer other than his reach which ultimately sealed his win over Riley. Neither men gave good preformances and looked a lot like the freak shows of Kimbo Slices fights at Elite XC. So again, where is Brett Rogers when you need him to call someones preformance “garbage”?
Tim Sylvia may have been a 2 time former UFC heavyweight champion but in no way can he compete at the level that is todays UFC heavyweight division. If you don’t believe me, then check out the fight for yourself and sorry if you get bored by the lack of martial arts in this video.
On another not former UFC lightheavyweight competitor who was also on the Adrenaline 4 card, Houston Alexander looked very impressive with his first round TKO of Sherman Pendergarst. Unlike Sylvia, he looks like he could again compete in the UFC. Check out his fight below.
There you have it. What do you think?
