Sylvia v. Mercer: Worst fight promo commercial ever

Steve Cofield

"Former UFC champ Tim Sylvia is knocked out by 96-year old Ray Mercer"

It's a nightmarish headline for every fan of mixed martial arts. Sylvia, just two years removed from holding the UFC heavyweight title, has tumbled to the point where he's boxing the nearly 50-year-old Mercer.

On the bright side, this commercial featuring Sylvia and Mercer "hyping" the June 13 fight is so bad that the broadcast may get only 11 viewers.

How about a second take: "Hey Ray, can you try PUNCHING the heavy bag?"
