Sylvia vs. Wagner Wiki Update Wiki

In the main event of Titan Fighting Championships 16, former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia took on Abe Wagner. Sylvia took the fight on just a few weeks notice and came in a heavy 311 pounds.

Sylvia came forward early and landed a right hand, yet Wagner answered with a hard right that smashed into the side of Sylvia's head, sending him stumbling backwards. Sylvia backpedaled, trying to stay in the fight, yet Wagner pressed forward landing one punch after another, finally dropping Sylvia. Referee Jason Herzog jumped in to call the fight, with Tim Sylvia protesting the stoppage, yet clearly having been unable to defend himself, face down on the mat.

Commenting to Frank Trigg in the post-fight interview, Wagner stated, "I thought I'd have a big speed advantage... I knew if I got inside his jab I was money... I knew I caught him with one."
