Titan FC 16 Weigh-Ins: Tim Sylvia Tips Scale at 311 Pounds

Former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia weighed in at 311 pounds on Thursday prior to his Titan FC 16 fight against Abe Wagner. Wagner, a former cast member on the 10th season of The Ultimate Fighter, weighed 265.2.

Titan FC 16 takes place Friday night at Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan. The main card, headlined by Sylvia vs. Wagner, airs live on HDNet at 10 p.m. ET.

This marks the heaviest Sylvia has ever been prior to a fight. "The Maine-iac" weighed 310 pounds before his fight against Ray Mercer in 2009 and 305 when he fought Mariusz Pudzianowksi in 2010.

The 34-year-old Sylvia (28-6) has won his last four fights in a row against Vince Lucero, Paul Buentello, Pudzianowksi and Jason Riley.

He took this fight on short notice after Todd Duffee, who was originally scheduled to fight Wagner, accepted a fight against Alistair Overeem at Dynamitte!! 2010.

Other Titan FC fights to be televised on Friday night include Jason High vs. Rudy Bears, Gary Tapusoa vs. Drew McFedries, and Rich "No Love" Clementi vs. Aaron Derrow.

Below is a video of Sylvia tipping the scales at 311 pounds.
