A boxing match in a cage? That appears to be in Adrenaline’s plans as Mmajunkie is reporting that Tim Sylvia’s bout with real boxer Ray Mercer will be in a mixed martial arts cage. Adrenaline III: Sylvia vs. Mercer will be in Birmingham, Alabama June 13 at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex Arena. It’s like reverse Pride…

Randy Couture’s wife will hopefully not get her face smashed in again by Miesha Tate. Kim Couture is 1-1 in MMA competition.

I’m guessing Wall Mart, K Mart, and Food 4 Less were already booked for fights?
