MMA Quick Quote: Mariusz Pudzianowski likes to hit big, soft people like Tim Sylvia


"Tim Sylvia is already past his prime, so the only thing he thinks about is the paycheck after the fight. When I’ll take him down and start landing my bombs, he will lose every desire to get up. His handshake at the press conference made me realize that he has a very soft body. I like big and soft people, they are fun to hit. I have to be careful from his striking in the early minutes of the fight, but I am still very confident that it will be a great victory. In two years from now, I would love to fight Fedor Emelianenko. He will rip my head off if we fight today, but in two years it could be a different story. It will be very interesting to see the bookmaker's odds for that fight."

Five-time World's Strongest Man, Mariusz Pudzianowski, tells that he's going to have fun beating on former UFC Heavyweight Champion 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 eying a future fight with heavyweight deity Fedor Emelianenko. Anyone think the muscular menace has the chops to make it as a full-time fighter?
