Tim Sylvia Pulled From Affliction: Trilogy

Fresh on the heels of his somewhat-shocking KO loss to aging former boxer Ray Mercer last week, Tim Sylvia has been pulled from the upcoming Affliction: Trilogy card.

Affliction honcho Tom Atencio pulled Sylvia from the card due to the former UFC champion’s brutal knockout. He likely wouldn’t have been ready for the show anyway, since he’ll be serving a medical suspension that will almost certainly carry past the fight date. Did Atencio pull Sylvia for medical reasons, or was Tim pulled from the show because any kind of marketability he had left was swept away with one punch from Mercer?

We’ve got an inquiry out to Tom Atencio and will follow up on this story later.
