Worlds Strongest Man set to kick ass in MMA
This comes as interesting news for fans of mixed martial arts – the most decorated worlds strongest man in the history of the competition is scheduled to make his MMA debut in Poland at an event called KSW 12 in the near future.
The man that can currently lay claim to being the strongest man on the face of the planet is set to bring some serious pain to the world of mixed martial arts in the near future.
Five-time Worlds Strongest Man, Mariusz Pudzianowski, has been announced to face off with fellow MMA newcomer Marcin Najman in a heavyweight match-up set for Warsaw, Poland as the headliner for an event titled KSW 12. The most decorated champion in the history of The Worlds Strongest Man, Pudzianowski captured the title a record five times during the years of 2002, 2003, 2005, 2007, and 2008.
Also affectionately referred to as Super Mario, Pudzian, Dominator, and possibly the gnarliest nickname of all time, The Big Python, Pudzianowski is a fourth kyu green belt in Kyokushin kaikan Karate which he has been studying and training since just eleven years of age. On top of his many years spent practicing Karate, Mariusz has also trained in competitive boxing for over seven years now.
As it stands right now, the 6’1″, 285 pound freak of nature is also listed as the top competitor in this years Worlds Strongest Man competition, which is slated to take place between the dates of September 26 and October 3. This years event will be hosted from Malta, a beautiful independent island in the center of the Mediterranean.
I’d like to see how he fares against established MMA stars in the future (especially those who rely primarily on submission techniques), but the poor dude he’s fighting in Poland is most likely going to get absolutely destroyed. Pudzianowski is an absolute beast, and as well as possessing animalistic raw strength he’s well skilled in boxing as well as a variant of karate meaning he’s a dangerous machine quite simply.
If he’s as good as he looks and eventually joins the ranks of the UFC he could also be the only man in mixed martial arts able to physically dominate Brock Lesnar the way he’s done with his opponents himself since debuting, whatever the case that would be a fight I’d absolutely love to see.
