MMA Quick Quote: Tim Sylvia is an OxyMoron

"I’m going to be up in the Boston area shooting a movie called OxyMorons. I’m one of the main characters and will be up there for three weeks (filming) ... This is definitely going to be a busy year for myself in fighting. I’m looking to have three fights between now and the end of summer. I’m getting back in there and I’m looking to get into title contention in whatever organization I make a home ... They want me on the card for Affliction 3 – and I want to be on the card – but we don’t know about opponents or what’s going to happen yet."

-Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia talks to MMAWeekly about his busy year in and out of the fight game. In addition to boxing former Olympic gold medalist and world heavyweight boxing champion Ray Mercer at the Adrenaline III card from the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, NJ on May 30, "The Maine-iac" will be starring in a film about OxyContin as well as keeping his MMA career afloat with Affliction or any other promotion still interested in the avid hunter and outdoorsman.
