Tim Sylvia got knocked out so that Ray Mercer could pay his bills

Props: CBS42 (via Bloody Elbow)

Quoteworthy:

"I whooped that ass! I mastered my game and his. No days to train, two days notice. You ain't shit Tim! The underdog always comes out on top. They tried to take it from me by making me fight this shit. I trained eight weeks for a boxing match and they gave me two days notice (to fight MMA). I need money, so I knocked a motherfucker OUT!"

Former boxing champion Ray Mercer celebrates his ten second knockout win over Tim Sylvia at Adrenaline III last Saturday (June 13) in Birmingham, Alabama. Apparently "Merciless" was just that -- and also a bit ornery after training for a boxing match only to have it changed to MMA at the last minute. Perhaps Mercer would have canceled the bout under different circumstances instead of fighting a former UFC Heavyweight Champion, but in this economy even Ray-Ray has to take any payday he can get. In the end it didn't matter, as "The Maine-iac" got put to sleep before any semblance of mixed martial arts was displayed.
