Mariusz Pudzianowski wins in Poland, salvages Moosin fight with Tim Sylvia

http://sports.yahoo.com/mma/news?slug=mmajunkie-Mariusz_Pudzianowski_Poland_Sylvia

It wasn't the most exciting affair, but Mariusz Pudzianowski picked up his second professional mixed-martial-arts victory and assured a May 21 main-event fight with former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia hasn't lost its luster.

Pudzianowski (2-0), a five-time World's Strongest Man champion, scored a majority-decision win over DEEP super-heavyweight champion Yusuke Kawaguchi (11-2) at Friday's KSW 13 event in his native Poland.

Pudzianowski, who appeared to run out of gas early in the fight, meets Sylvia at "Moosin: God of Martial Arts," a pay-per-view event that takes place in two weeks at the DCU Center in Worcester, Mass.

Using his size and strength, Pudzianowski earned the decision primarily on takedowns and control of his opponent. However, he showed his inexperience during ineffective standup exchanges, lulls of inaction on the mat, and suspect conditioning that sapped the fighter of energy past the first few minutes of the bout.

Despite his recent skid (following a UFC title run that included six straight victories, he since has won just two of his past six fights), Sylvia (25-6) should have little trouble with Pudzianowski unless the Polish fighter shows brings a vastly different gameplan and gas tank to the upcoming fight.

Still, the 290-pound Pudzianowski, who made his pro debut in December with a 43-second TKO of fellow MMA newcomer Marcin Najman, notched a signature win with the performance. Kawaguchi, a DEEP and M-1 veteran, entered the fight on a three-fight win streak, and his only prior career loss came to British notable Rob Broughton (14-5-1).

Also on the KSW 13 fight card, World Victory Road/Sengoku middleweight Mamed Khalidov (20-4-2), who in 2009 defeated champion Jorge Santiago in a non-title fight, fought Ryuta Sakurai (20-15-6) to a draw. Khalidov, who retained his KSW middleweight belt with the performance, couldn't finish his opponent, and the fight was even forced into an overtime fourth round.

Aside from a loss to Santiago in their March rematch, Khalidov is unbeaten over his past 20 fights

I didn't see the fight, but I read that Pudz gassed badly. That does not bode well for him against Sylvia. Impressive that he beat a former DEEP champ in his second fight, though. Sylvia still ought not to take this too lightly.

Shows us how little 'technique' you need if you got 'otherwordly' strength and some notion of knowing what you're doing.

Still.. Sylvia is a lot more experienced in actually 'fighting' someone. Pudzianowski is strong, but has no technique and gets gassed badly.

Even though he claims he can hit quite hard (Pudzianowski), I haven't actually seen him use his hands in a proper manner...

Have to agree: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YcSyYsrP9Y&feature=related

His pad work looks awful. For someone with an alleged 4th Dan in Kyokushin, and some boxing experience, I would hope to see better stance. He is stood square on, and throwing his punches from a 'prayer' position frown
So all the massive potential for explosivity and hip torque that is lurking in that body is completely neutered, and he is throwing arm punches, and has no ability to move forward, or backward with any speed or use of momentum.
No way will he be able to negate Sylvia's reach without a powerful controlled ability to get inside.
He has a bad habit of 'karate blocking' head shots, leaving his chin wide open and not tucked in to his shoulder. Say what you like about Tim, but he has good enough hands to sting through that tactic at will.

I think Marius needs to step outside the comfort zone of Poland, and come train with a real team, because that dude (was it the cigarrette smoking man from the x-files?) is letting him get away with bad, bad habits.

Maybe his wild aggression and power will be enough, but I cant see it on the evidence available.

If Pudz is serious about going 'mma' he will need to do what Brock did. Get lean, train with a team, and learn to hit like a machine.

Brock might not be technically the most impressive guy, but I'd say between Brock and Pudz, I think Brock would easily manhandle the guy with more power than Pudz could generate. At least, Brock knows how to properly use all that horse-power.

???!!! Seriously, MP walks around at about under 10% bodyfat. He is leaner than Brock, who fights (by visual estimate) at 12-14%

Agreed.

Stand up? maybe so. But his wrestling pedigree is elite, and I am not talking WWE here. So he came to the cage with serious fight ability, just one dimensional.

Which is down to technique, and wrestling experience. The fact remains that Marius has the baseline advantage in functional strength and power, he needs badly to learn how to apply it to the mechanics of fighting.

If he manages the transition, then things will get very interesting indeed.

I think Taison may have meant that Pudz needs to cut back on the muscle-mass to help his cardio?

Agreed - Brock's wrestling is very good. He easily pinned BJJ black belt Frank Mir.

Not what you want to see in your cell the first night of your conviction shocked

He is quite a character though - this was from some celebrity reality show. He was also runner up on Poland's 'Dancing with the Stars', has his own rock group 'The Pudzian Band' and owns a chain of polish supermarkets.

Jack of all trades, master of one, being picking up heavy things, which he truly is superhuman at.
