Last week we heard the fake news that Quinton "Rampage" Jackson would fill Mr.T's shoes in an upcoming A-Team movie. Finding out it wasn't really happening was heart wrenching.  Luckily, the heavyweights are in the house, capable as always of topping the little guys.  Sure Mr. T is an icon, but he's no Jason Voorhees.

Who is possibly awkward enough and slow enough of foot to play the plodding serial killer?  Only one man comes to mind: The Maine-iac Tim Sylvia. Fighters.com has the story. 

Former UFC heavyweight champion "Maine-iac" Tim Sylvia (24-6) is currently in Boston playing horror film icon Jason Vorhees in the yet-to-be-titled "Friday the 13th" sequel, Fighters.com has confirmed with a source close to the fighter.

 

Have no fear about Sylvia's training regiment while he works on the movie.  He'll be training with Mark DellaGrotte and Kenny Florian while he's in Boston for Friday the 13th.  Sylvia has lost three in a row.  The chances of making it four just increased ten fold with this latest distraction.
