"Tim Sylvia's fight tonight at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut has been cancelled," added promoter Monte Cox. "The Mohegan Commission did not give him medical clearance to compete."
Sylvia, 38, is mired in a three-fight losing streak and was last seen dropping a unanimous decision to Ruslan Magomedov at Fight Nights: "Battle of Moscow 13" last October. It should be noted that on Sylvia's official Facebook page, he's listed as a "Weight Loss Coach" at Visalus.
