KSW 17 went down yesterday (Sat., Nov. 26, 2011) over in Poland and featured a rematch of a KSW 16 bout pitting James Thompson, he of "got beat up by Kimbo Slice on CBS" fame, against bodybuilder Mariusz Pudzianowski.
The fight was ugly and Pudzianowski was granted a majority decision after just two rounds of action, though it looked an awful lot like Thompson should have been awarded the first round.
That's an opinion shared by many, including "The Colossus" himself, who voiced his extreme displeasure in a post-fight promo for the ages. He even called out the promoter. Here's the text:
"F*cking joke. Give Mariusz a big round of applause. Come on. What a f*cking joke. I thought KSW was really trying to be serious. If you can watch that back and call that serious, then you're f*cked, and KSW is going down the f*cking toilet."
That, my friends, is what happens when keeping it real goes wrong.
Of course, it meant nothing to the end result, which still reads a decision win for Pudzianowski. Watch the video of Thompson blowing up, along with complete results from KSW 17, after the jump.
