Tim Sylvia weighs 310 lbs for Adrenaline III ‘Bragging Rights’ event on June 13

The June 12 weigh-in event for Adrenaline III ‘Bragging Rights,’ featuring Tim Sylvia versus Ray Mercer, is officially in the books. The troubled MMA card is set to take place tonight (June 13) at the BJCC Arena in Birmingham, Alabama.

All 28 fighters who tipped the scales yesterday made weight without incident — though former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia stunned the crowd with a scale-busting weight of 310 pounds for his MMA-turned-boxing-turned-MMA fight against former pugilist powerhouse Ray Mercer.

The "The Maine-iac" typically fights in the heavyweight division, capping off at 265 pounds. In his fight with Fedor Emelianenko for example, Sylvia weighed in at 263 pounds, a staggering 47 pounds less than he is for this bout.

This new development has prompted Adrenaline officials to considered changing the name of the Adrenaline III card to "Sagging Rights."

It's unclear if this is part of a strategy that Sylvia had originally intended for his boxing match or just pure laziness on his part. For what it's worth, his cagey opponent "Merciless" weighed in at a svelte 256.6 pounds.

Not that I needed to remind anyone but this "attraction" has f'ugly written all over it.
