Default Ohio commission turns down Sims vs. Sylvia

"The commission felt the fight was not going to be competitive at this time after comparing [Sims' and Sylvia's] records and the opponents both fighters had faced," Profato stated in an email response. "And even though it was 2004, Sylvia previously stopped Sims at 1:36 of the first round."
haha wow, sort of crazy.

Fascinating...is it usual for a SAC to worry about whether an match will be competative...if so, how do they explain sanctioning ANYONE to fight GSP, Anderson Silva, or BJ Penn in the UFC

That is not to say I have an issue with any such decision or investment...i'm just suprised...I do hope this isnt some kinda Armando Garcia type who is doing this to snub monte cox

It is normal for them to do it, but only with aging fighters who they think have suffered a lot of damage recently or over the course of their career.

They're also not likely to sanction a match between a newcomer and a top veteran. However, Sims on his way up (arguably) against Sylvia on his way down doesn't seem THAT lopsided to me.

I dont know if I would say that Sims is on his way up but Tim is def on his way down.

I guess Tim has decided to fight cans for the rest of his career.

This is the first time I recall hearing about them doing it in MMA,
does it happen often in boxing?
