Sengoku middleweight contender Mamed Khalidov fought to a draw against a former DEEP champion, while five-time World 's Strongest Man champion Mariusz Pudzianowski was victorious against a DEEP champion Friday at KSW 13 in Katowice, Poland.
In his second professional MMA fight, Pudzianowski (2-0) squeaked through with a majority decision win over DEEP Megaton (the promotion's XXL division) champion Yusuke Kawaguchi (11-2) after two rounds.
The fight was basically a sloppy brawl with Pudzianowski taking the fight on four takedowns, the highlight being a powerful suplex in the first round (video above). But it's probably not going to look good for him when he faces Tim Sylvia at Moosin on May 21 in Worcester, Mass. Pudzianowski's cardio faded early, stuck his chin out in his punch exchanges and proved inefficient once the fight went to the floor.
