Tim Sylvia vs. Mariusz Pudzianowski scheduled in Mass

by Mark Daniels | source: bostonherald.com
 

With Massachusetts’ new mixed marital arts regulations going into effect on Monday, there is already a card being planned for the DCU Center in Worcester on April 23.

Promoters Corey Fischer and Eric “Butterbean” Esch have told the Herald that they have scheduled the bouts under the Korean-based promotion company, Moosin, and the featured fight will pit former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia against Mariusz Pudzianowski.

Pudzianowski has won the World’s Strongest Man title a record five times. The 33-year-old made his MMA debut in December and this show will mark his U.S. debut.

Also signed for the card are UFC veterans Rich Clementi, Yves Edwards and Houston Alexander, according to Fischer.

“This will be the biggest card ever done, probably in the Northeast,” said Fischer. “The UFC is coming here in August and they’re going to have a hard gate to beat. I think this fight card will be better than what they’re bringing.”
According to Fischer, Moosin will be traveling all over the country. After the stop in Massachusetts, the company will stage fights in Poland and Shanghai, China. The April 23 card will be shown all over the world.

“It’ll be on pay-per-view and shown live in Korea, Poland, Canada and about 14 other countries,” said Fischer. “This will have more viewers than (the UFC’s) show.”

How did you come to the conclusion that Pudz is a good wrestler? So far, he has one takedown on a 0-1 MMA fighter. And even if he was a good wrestler, is he as good a wrestler as say, Monson (an elite wrestler/grappler that couldn't do anything to Timmay on the ground)?Obviously MPs best chance is on the ground, but we're talking about different levels of the game.

Pudz tries kicking Tim with his hands as low as they are every time he kicked in his last fight and Timmy's going to knock him out.

Tim has the advantage on the feet, but Pudz is a good wrestler, and his strength is enough that it will be a huge advantage in this fight. I see Pudz winnin gby GnP.

Card is definitely happening. Butterbean and one of the promoters were in town meeting with commish last week. They were also at WCF talking about it.
