Butterbean: Pudz punches like a girl

by Bob Trieger | source: thegarv.com

Eric "Butterbean" Esch has put himself at odds with Moosin officials when he criticized 5-time World's Strongest Man Mariusz "Dominator" Pudzianowski.

Moosin officials believe in Pudzianowski and want him featured on their proposed October 9 show in Chicago. Butterbean, who works for Moosin, doesn't see it that way.  He thinks Mariusz did not earn a second shot.

I know he allegedly broke his foot in the fight against Sylvia, but he didn’t show anything before he quit. Pudzianowski has no stand-up and as strong as he is, he punches like a girl. All he does is throw arm punches. He needs a lot of help. He’s the 5-time World’s Strongest Man but hits like a 130-pounder, not a strong man who weighs 270 pounds. He doesn’t have the skill level to get to the level he wants to fight.

Once he gets a stand-up game – you can’t have a ground game working without one – he could be a force in MMA. He still needs some work on his ground game, too. We all know he’s very strong but that’s not enough at the highest level of MMA. I don’t know who has been coaching him but that trainer should be fired. Pudzianowski needs to prove himself, showing he has a good stand-up game by beating a good MMA fighter, before he gets another big fight like a spot on the October 9th show.

slow down with the accusations there my little keyboard warrior, you're the one getting your panties in a wad b/c i said, "who the fuck cares?!?!" in regards to your little man crush you got going on with GBNo worries/anger here, i just didnt know the "Punctuation Police," were here to critique our posts, and then when one corrects/revise their posts, with a subtle, "get off your knees!" (notice the single exclamation point) the other seems to think he's angry? LMAO!!!...glad to see you stick up for your man though....pretty cute!

Even butterbean would maul Pudz, Pudz is not a fighter

 the funny thing is Bean's % of wins by sub.  He had a good jab and if he used it Pudz would never reach him.

 I'd be interested in Butterbean-Tank and Shamrock-Coleman while there at it

They sold more PPV's than Fedor-Lindland I enjoyed it and would purchase a Kimbo-Pudz card.

 I googled it and there were something like 5.7 million viewer with 340k ppv buys. Mostly in Europe though

 I heard it was like 300k ppv's and some gate money. Hope they do well, for the fighters sake.

All good points Zippy...I was eluding to the fact that the Beans look and personality made him "The King of the 4 rounders" rather than any world class boxing skill.
