"This whole MMA ranking stuff is a big pile of B.S. Everybody is in such love with Brock Lesnar, who came from nothing, zero MMA experience, and now he's considered one of the best? He fought only five times and is now considered Mr. Untouchable? Why not me then? Nobody knows how hard I'm preparing myself. I'm training with the best Polish wrestlers; these are top guys. It's easy to do when you're not fighting for money - I'm already a very wealthy guy with a secured future - but for the love and new challenge, and always for my fans, here in Poland and abroad. I would never, repeat never, start fighting in MMA if I didn't believe I could be the best. First Kawaguchi, then Sylvia - sorry guys, you are in my way."
Five-time World's Strongest Man, Mariusz Pudzianowski, tells MMAWeekly that he's not much different from current UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar in that he too is going to make a late transition to MMA and start beating up everyone in his way -- starting with former Zuffa champ Tim Sylvia at the upcoming Moosin event on May 21 in Worcester. The Polish powerhouse has a lot to prove before he's considered a serious threat in this sport -- but that hasn't stopped him from setting some pretty lofty goals. Anyone think the muscular menace has the chops to make it as a top contender?
