The man who holds more Worlds Strongest Man titles than any other strongman competitor Mariusz Pudzianowski, has decided that he wants to fight MMA. It seems like Mariusz just keeps changing his mind on what he wants to do. Mariusz has also dabbled in acting, singing as well as rugby but is the man with the most Worlds Strongest Man titles out of his league when he says that he basically wants to out power real mix martial artists? Where is Royce Gracie when we need him?
In december of this year Mariusz will be fighting in some Polish organization I have never heard of called KSW 12 against boxer Marcin Najman who is also making his mix martial arts debut. Marcin who is a much smaller man than Mariusz, has good record in pro boxing of 13-4 but no ground game. This fight is going to be bad for a guy who has no ground game. Mariusz being the strongman that he is at 305 pounds will be looking to take this fight to the ground and when he does, Najman will not be getting back up. A smart idea for Najmin would be to train like Chuck Liddell. Have enough wrestling to sprawl at the take down and keep it on your feet. This is going to be an early night for what has been dubbed as the most expensive MMA event in European history.
Just like Brock Lesnar when he was feed his first sheep in Min Soo Kim, Najin will be feed to the wolf in strong and overall bigger man Mariusz. I personally cant wait to see Mariusz get destroyed by a guy with ground game but I guess we will have to wait til then.
