Just when you thought the latest boxing-MMA crossover couldn't get any stranger, it does. The planned boxing match between boxer Ray Mercer and MMA fighter Tim Sylvia at Adrenaline MMA 3, moved from New Jersey to Alabama over regulatory concerns, will now be held in an MMA cage instead of a boxing ring. Monte Cox, on the change, says it "just makes sense".

Will it be no holds barred? Sylvia hitting Mercer with a metal chair would be instantly memorable.

This matchup is now past insane.

Ummm, no, Monte...it DOESN'T make sense. I'd rather watch them Wii Boxing each other.

The last I read, they were thinking about setting the outside of the cage on fire while the fight was happening. Anyone hear anymore about that???

I don't think that concept passed fire code...so they had to settle for it surrounded by a moat filled with alligators.

Unlikely just because Mercer's still a big name in boxing circles and we are talking about TIMMAY!! on the MMA side.
