The "Windy City" sure is cold this time of the year

It appears the Illinois State Professional Athletic Commission (ISPAC) has put a stop to a potential bout between former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia (29-7) and relative unknown Andreas Kraniotakes (12-4) for ProElite 2.

The installment of the revived promotion titled  "Big Guns" is scheduled to take place on Nov. 5, 2011, at the iWireless Center in Moline, Ill. The entire main card is scheduled to air live on HDNet and also features former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski vs. journeymen Travis Fulton.

The ISPAC contends the German didn't have enough 'sanctioned' fights on his professional record. After a few hours it appears the decision was reversed.

That was a few hours ago and it appears the fight is back on according to HDnet fights CEO Andrew Simon:

Andrew Simon Andreas Kraniotakes is ON ProElite card. Thanks to IL commission for making the right decision. Watch out for him! 1 hour ago

 

So it appears the lack of sanctioned fights disagreement for his original refusal has been over-turned. So Maniacs, who ya got?
