I'd say he's done, coming in against an old boxer weighing over 300 pounds and getting KO'd inside 10 seconds...

He's at a very low point in his career right now, but who knows, maybe he can make a comeback.

I haven't heard anything about him since he got KTFO by Mercer, but apparently he's got a fight next month:
Quote:
Monte Cox's Adrenaline MMA organization returns for its fourth show on Sept. 18 with a headline fight between former UFC champion Tim Sylvia (24-6) and Jason Riley (6-1).

Riley, an Ohio-based heavyweight, confirmed the fight via MySpace, though the organization has not officially announced the "Adrenaline MMA IV" event.

According a report earlier this month from The Northwest Times of Indiana, Adrenaline MMA IV takes place Sept. 18 (a day before UFC 103 in Dallas) at the Mid-America Center near Omaha, Neb., in Coucil Bluffs, Iowa, and is also likely to feature Jeremy Horn (81-19-5).

The report also stated UFC light heavyweight Houston Alexander (8-4) is expected to compete on the card. MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) spoke to a source close to the fighter and confirmed Alexander has agreed to fight on the card after receiving permission from the UFC to take an outside bout. Alexander, a popular fighter who's unfortunately suffered three straight losses, expects to return to the UFC later this year if victorious.

Sylvia returns to the cage for the first time since an embarrassing nine-second knockout loss to 48-year-old boxer Ray Mercer in June. The bout, and event, underwent venue and rules changes because of issues with the Sylvia-Mercer bout, which was originally slated as a boxing fight. However, after a move from Atlantic City to Birmingham, Ala., and pressure from regulators, the fight was changed to an MMA bout.

Sylvia has now lost three consecutive fights, which included a submission loss to Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 81 and a submission loss to Fedor Emelianenko in the headliner of "Affliction: Banned." The Mercer loss cost him a spot on the "Affliction: Trilogy" main card, though the event was ultimately scrapped anyway.

Riley, a Columbus, Ohio-based fighter who's recently competed in the popular Ohio-based NAAFS promotion, went 8-0 as an amateur before turning pro. Since that move to pro status in 2007, he's posted a 6-1 record (with five stoppage wins) but faces his biggest challenge to date with Sylvia.

No opponents have been determined for Houston or Horn, a UFC vet who recently snapped a three-fight losing streak with a win over Chris Davis (1-0 at the time) at Adrenaline MMA's third show back in June.

Two quick losses and people are screaming he's done... look at his record? He may not be an exciting fighter but he he knows how to win.

I don't think he's done, but he needs to rethink some aspects of his game.
