Concerning the Tim Sylvia situation:
Tim Sylvia was not medically cleared to fight late Friday evening. The cancellation of the fight had nothing to do with Tim’s weight which has been reported in some circles. Due to his age, Tim was required to get an updated MRI which was performed on Friday morning. Due to findings on this test, the neurologist that works with the Mohegan Commission would not clear Tim to fight. Tim passed his pre-fight physical and stress test (that was also required in order for him to fight). We attempted to save the fight Saturday morning but there was nothing else that could be done and the fight was called off. Once the fight was cancelled, every major MMA media source broke the news.
We regret that the fight did not happen and did all we could to try and make it happen. We were extremely excited for this fight. It was an unfortunate circumstance that forced the cancellation of the fight and ended the career of Mr. Sylvia.
