Newly Formed "Adrenaline" Promotion Signs Tim Sylvia

The following is provided courtesy of an Adrenaline press release:

NEW YORK — Adrenaline MMA announced today that heavyweight stars Tim
Sylvia and Ben Rothwell have signed multi-fight contracts with the
newly-formed promotion.

Sylvia (24-4) is a former 2-time UFC heavyweight champion, while Rothwell
(31-5) was undefeated in the IFL for the champion Quad Cities Silverbacks.

Sylvia, 6-foot-8 and 265 pounds, has fought 13 times in the UFC and
defeated top performers like Jeff Monson, Andre Arlovski (twice), Brandon
Vera, Ricco Rodriguez and Assuerio Silva.

“Adrenaline is a new promotion, but it allows fighters to fight for other
organizations… that’s huge,” Sylvia said. “I’ve got 3 to 4 years left
and want to fight as much as possible, so this is the perfect choice for
me at this time.”

Rothwell, 6-5 and 265, has won 13 straight bouts, including all 9 of his
IFL fights.

“Adrenaline will give me the chance to take things to the next level,”
Rothwell said. “I’m ready to see how I fare against the best heavyweights
in the world.”

Sylvia and Rothwell both train at Miletich Fighting Systems in Bettendorf,
