Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight prospect Sean McCorkle has been tapped to face off against Mariusz Pudzianowski at the upcoming KSW 23 event, booked for June 8, 2013 at the Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland.
"Big Sexy" tweeted the good news earlier today.
After rattling off six straight wins in his post-Octagon endeavors, McCorkle (16-5) finds himself mired in a three-fight slump, having last seen action in a losing effort to Satoshi Ishii at IGF: "Genome 24" back in February.
Pudzianowski (5-2) is a staple in KSW after rising to fame as the "World's Strongest Man." He's coming off back-to-back technical knockout wins over Bob Sapp (lolz) and Christos Pilifas.
