The Ohio Athletic Commission decided not to sanction the bout between the Ultimate Fighting Championship veterans Wes Sims and Tim Sylvia, calling it "non competitive". Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia (25-6) was scheduled to fight Wes Sims (22-13-1) at the Adrenaline MMA V event on March 20 in Youngstown, Ohio.

OAC executive director Bernie Profato released an official announcement on the issue:  "The Commission felt the fight was not going to be competitive at this time after comparing records and the opponents both fighters had faced."

Tim Sylvia reacted to the issue in his Twitter account saying "Damm u guys know more about me then I do they said he sucks. So I can't fight him cause it's a mismatch." Despite the disappointing news, Sylvia and Wes Sims will stay on the Adrenaline card, with Branden Lee Hinkle and 22-11 Kerry Schall (who are already cleared by the OAC) as a potential opponents.

    ahh Dan Henderson n your a retard for thinking nick Diaz Sucks.

    About the issue now i couldnt imagine being a proffessional fighter and not evening getting the chance to fight because some athletic commision says so, thats wrong the worst thing you can do is not give someone a chance to fight or rise to the occasion let the fighters prove something to the critics and themselves.

    Nick Diaz IS a really great fighter. does anybody know why he's not fighting in the UFC anymore? He had a bad run for a while, but his last 2 fights in the UFC were wins.

    Because he doesnt want to tone down the drugs + lifestyle.



    I mean shit, he can do what he wants, but there is going to be piss tests and so just stop doing it the week before and your fine. Seems stupid IMO why he doesnt just tone down everything.



    Dana has said that he wont come back into the UFC until he starts "Playing the game" aka toning down the shit that surrounds him.

    Would be funny if they said the same thing about GSP vs Hardy.
