    Mariusz Pudzianowski, Strongman to MMA conversion. Respect?

    4 yrs ago one of the greatest "worlds strongest men" competitors, Mariusz Pudzianowski, decided to try out MMA. He started out as any would expect, a sideshow act like Kimbo Slice or Butterbean. But he has clearly made a markable improvement in his striking and cardio, and has dropped from 300 lbs to a 265 to 275 on fight night. He is 5-2-1NC with losses to Tim Sylvia in a clown fight (his 3rd fight) and James Thompson.
    At 35 yrs of age, I'm not saying he's ever gonna make any waves in MMA, but I kinda respect his going out and training SERIOUSLY in the sport of MMA. Maybe he's got a successful Career as Poland's biggest draw? KSW does good work there as far as I have seen. What you guys think?

    Pilafas is not exactly a elite HW, but Pudzian pulled this fight off nicely. If he keeps his cardio up he may (may) earn a shot at a ufc fight or 2 in his career. Especially when Dana decides (and you KNOW he will eventually) to expand his Europe domain.
