MMA Quick Quote: World's Strongest Man not afraid of Tim Sylvia -- or a 15-minute fight

Mariusz-2_30320_medium

"I know what it means to fight three five-minute rounds. I get another new opponent every minute when I spar and I handle that. So if I can deal with five foes in one round, there won't be any problem with only one. Obviously there's a possibility that I will break a leg or pull a tendon. It's occupational hazard, but I don't take it under consideration. I'm not concerned at all. I have a clause in my contract that once I sign it, within 24-hours I will receive certain percent of my purse for this bout. If it's not there, I'm not going anywhere. Listen, I'm not afraid of anyone. I have my next fight on May 7th and another two weeks later, if everything goes as planned I'll face Pawel (Nastula) in September. I do it step by step."

Five-time World's Strongest Man, Mariusz Pudzianowski, tells Fighter's Only that he's signed on to face former UFC Heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia at the upcoming Moosin event on April 23 in Worcester -- despite already being booked to fight for Polish promotion KSW on May 7. All in a day's work for the budding mixed martial artist, who's off to a torrid 1-0 start and hopes to step up his competition this September. Anyone think the Polish strongman has a career in MMA? Or will "Dominator" get sent back to the weight room by "The Maine-iac" in Boston?
