KSW 19: "Pudzianowski vs. Sapp" went down last night (Sat., May 12, 2012) at the Atlas Arena in Lodz, Poland, and featured the latest in a long series of dives from disgraced mixed martial artist (if you can call him that), Bob Sapp.
This time he laid down for Marius Pudzianowski, who willingly unloaded as many punches as his oversized muscles could possibly deliver in the shortest amount of time he could deliver them. He even landed a takedown, though it looked like a grown man simply toying with a child.
A very large child.
Though this has become the norm when dealing with Sapp, it's beyond embarrassing that he continues to get fight bookings, even when the promoters may have done so simply because this was the result they desired.
Pudzianowski also deserves criticism for the manner in which he conducted himself immediately following the referee's orders to stop the bout. In short, he didn't listen and had to be physically pulled off Sapp, who spent almost the entire fight just covering up.
All in all, it was sad.
But they weren't the only two competing on the card. In fact, middleweight mauler Mamed Khalidov did his thing on the undercard, knocking out Rodney Wallace in the first round. Matt Horwich was also victorious, winning a majority decision over Jay Silva.
