- Tim Sylvia To Head Adrenaline 2 In September

Although the debut of fledging mixed martial arts promotion Adrenaline won’t take place until June 14, the promotion’s president and CEO, Monte Cox, already has plans for a follow-up event.

“My next show for Adrenaline will be Sept. 6 and that's going to be at the i wireless Center in Moline, Ill.,” said Cox.

The i wireless Center is a 12,000-seat multi-purposed facility that is home to both a minor league hockey team and an arena football team.

“That's basically the Quad Cities, home of the Miletich Fighting Systems,” Cox continued. “That show will include Tim Sylvia and Ben Rothwell.”

Adrenaline is the end product of the dissolution of the original M-1 Global partnership that was planning on building around Fedor Emelianenko, highly regarded as the No. 1 heavyweight fighter in the world.

Following the separation between the business factions behind M-1 Global, Adrenaline moved forward without Emelianenko, immediately signing former Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight titleholder Tim Sylvia.

Sylvia and Rothwell also happen to be managed by Cox.

Adrenaline held off on utilizing Sylvia – who is under a non-exclusive contract with the promotion - for its June 14 event, instead opting to allow him to face Emelianenko. The heavyweight bout is expected to headline a July event operated by popular clothing company Affliction.

“We signed Tim Sylvia to Adrenaline. That's a great sign for us. Then the Affliction thing comes along, what am I supposed to do? Tell Tim that he can't fight the No. 1 fighter in the world in one of the biggest fights ever?” said Cox of the decision to allow Sylvia to fight for another promoter. “I'm not gonna tell him that. Why, just because I have a contract for him to fight for Adrenaline?

“We're not going to do that stuff. If there are better fights out there that they have a chance to fight in and they want to do them and we want them to do them. Then that's what we're going to do, we're going to fight outside of our own event.”

No opponent has been named for either Sylvia or Rothwell for the Sept. 6 Adrenaline event.
