After being knocked out by Ray Mercer in ten seconds on Saturday night, more bad career news for the former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia. Affliction VP Tom Atencio has decided that a scheduled Affliction 3 ‘Trilogy’ fight between Sylvia and Paul Buentello has to be put on hold.
“It’s his second knockout in a row, and I don’t want to take a chance on anything … The fight is less than 60 days away. [MMAFanhouse]”
Tim Syliva and his management must have known that this would be a possibility if he suffered any injury during his fight with Mercer.
