Report: Tim Sylvia vs. Wes Sims Rejected By Ohio Athletic Commission

New, 8 comments

From MMAJunkie:

 The Ohio Athletic Commission has turned down a proposed heavyweight bout between former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia (25-6) and "The Ultimate Fighter 10" alumnus Wes Sims (22-13-1) at the as-yet-unnanounced "Adrenaline MMA V" event on March 20 in Youngstown, Ohio.

The bout was deemed 'non competitive', and therefore will not take place.  Wes Sims is coming off a one sided loss to Bobby Lashley at the Strikeforce: "Miami" event.  Sims had actually agreed to this bout prior to taking the fight with Bobby Lashley on short notice.  Sylvia hasn't fought since September 2009, a TKO win over Jason Riley.
