Tim Sylvia finally got back on track two Fridays ago with a victory over Jason Riley at Adrenaline IV, however he didn’t come away unscathed. The former UFC heavyweight champion suffered a broken right hand that will force him to postpone his Dream debut which was originally scheduled for October 25th.
Sylvia was riding a three fight losing streak prior to his win over Riley with losses to Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (UFC), Fedor Emelianenko (Affliction) and Ray Mercer (Adrenaline).
It had been announced that Sylvia would fight his debut bout for Dream at Dream.12, but the injury will keep him out of action for the foreseeable future.
Dream.12 as we reported yesterday will be the first Dream event to feature a cage. The promotion will use a six-sided fenced surface which they are calling “The White Cage”.
