That's right, Mariusz Pudzianowski vs Tim - freakin -Sylvia!! If this is real, then this marks a GIANT step up for the multi-time WSM competitor Pudz!

http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2010/2/27/1329384/mariusz-pudzianowski-vs-tim-sylvia#comments

"Pudzianowski has won the World’s Strongest Man title a record five times. The 33-year-old made his MMA debut in December and this show will mark his U.S. debut.

Also signed for the card are UFC veterans Rich Clementi, Yves Edwards and Houston Alexander.

"This will be the biggest card ever done, probably in the Northeast," said [promoter Corey] Fischer. "The UFC is coming here in August and they’re going to have a hard gate to beat. I think this fight card will be better than what they’re bringing."

"It’ll be on pay-per-view and shown live in Korea, Poland, Canada and about 14 other countries," said Fischer. "This will have more viewers than (the UFC’s) show."

As of now, Moosin will be the first big MMA organization to come to Boston. As announced earlier, Bellator Fighting Championships will head to the Citi Performing Arts Center Wang Theatre on May 6 and the UFC makes its Massachusetts debut on August 28 at the TD Garden."


If Tim shows up in shape, he should take this easily. But if he deson't show up in shape....... Mercer 2.0.

Mariusz will win. I like, and rate Sylvia more highly than most on here, but his stand up does not stand up to high pressure. He likes a boxing match.

Its easy to see Mariusz as a novice, and in some respects he is, but he has solid karate and boxing experience along with his Strength titles.

I think he will be less wild than his debut, and his power will be too much for Tim.

Damn, it looks like it was too good to be true:

http://www.mmafighting.com/2010/03/01/ex...nd-fight-in-po/

"Former multi-time World's Strongest Man Mariusz Pudzianowski has effectively extinguished rumors of a bout against former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia, as he has been officially announced for a follow-up appearance in the Poland-based KSW promotion.

Pudzianowski, who needed just 43 seconds to defeat Marcin Najman in his first pro bout in Dec. 2009 (video below), will co-headline a May 7 event in Katowice, Poland against a yet-unnamed opponent.

Though some published reports have named Robert Paczkow as his foe, KSW co-owner Martin Lewandowski told MMA Fighting in an email that information was incorrect, and that Pudzianowski's opponent would be revealed within a few days.

The 33-year-old Pudzianowski is one of the biggest sports stars in Poland, after having captured the World's Strongest Man competition in five different years.

Over the weekend, The Boston Herald reported that Pudzianowski-Sylvia would headline an April 23 show in Worcester, Mass., but that seems unlikely with Pudzianowski contractually bound to a show in Poland just two weeks later."

Pudzianowski for the win. Sylvia is a bone they are throwing to him. Pudzianowski is going to come out like WWIII with bombs flying; something Sylvia cannot handle. It will be lights out once again.

To my knowledge, Mariusz has not announced his retirement from Strength athletics, so presumably, intends to persue a 6th WSM title as well as his MMA career.

This means, quite frankly, that he will not pass any US state comission's drug testing protocol's, so he is unlikely to fight in the US until such time as he changes his pharmaceutical regime to fit in with those regulations.

That's not meant as criticism, its just a simple truth.

Oddly enough, I don't think Pudz would have any problems with the drug testing. I imagine that most pro-MMA'ers are on something, and they understand how to get past the tests.

I hope he continues to fight, and get better opponents, while holding off on the Sylvia-level fighters for a bit.

Who tests pro MMA'ist anyway in the USA? Is it the state athletic comission (e.g. Nevada)? I know they handle pro boxing tests.

You got it, state athletic comissions do the testing in the USA.

Its not that he would be the only one on juice, its that, as he is still a competetive strongman, and this is still his primary sport, his drug-cycling will be based around that, not his mma bouts. This would cause him problems.
