Tim Sylvia looked better than he has in a long time at Adrenaline MMA IV.

Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia made a successful return to the cage Friday night, Sept. 18, in Council Bluffs, Iowa as he defeated rising prospect Jason Riley with a first round TKO.

With three losses in a row, this was a must win fight for “The Maine-iac.” He said prior to the fight that if he could not defeat Riley there was no reason for him to keep competing.

For a time Sylvia considered branching out into professional boxing. However, after a very quick KO loss to elderly ex-boxing champ Ray Mercer, Sylvia realized that trying to start a boxing career at his age was not the smartest move.

The next wrestler could be Daniel Cormier

Even the MMA analysts who saw Joe Warren’s star potential did not think he would be this impressive this early on. In the wee hours of Tuesday morning, here in the States, the self-proclaimed “Baddest Man on the Planet” defeated perennial pound-for-pound fighter, Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto. In only his second MMA fight, Warren relied mostly on his wrestling skill and took the fight by decision.

Wrestlers crossing over into MMA is almost as old as the sport itself. The accomplishments of these wrestlers are so well documented, that there is no need to go through them once again. Now, it seems as if any person who won more wrestling matches than they lost is considered to be world-class.
