(mmajunkie.com)

Former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia, who had put together a respectable four-fight run heading into Friday's Titan Fighting Championship 16 event, lasted just 32 seconds against "The Ultimate Fighter 10" cast member Abe Wagner. The super heavyweight matchup served as the main event of Friday night's HDNet-broadcast event, which took place at Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan.
