Pudzianowski TKO's Butterbean at KSW 14

by Michael David Smith | source: mmafighting.com

Former World's Strongest Man Mariusz Pudzianowski beat up the 450-pound former boxer Eric "Butterbean" Esch Saturday in a freak show fight in Poland's KSW mixed martial arts organization.

Pudzianowski went for a takedown early in the first round and got Butterbean on his back, and from there he went straight into side control and just landed punches to Butterbean's enormous head until the referee stopped the fight. Butterbean looked like a fish out of water -- or a beached whale -- and really looked like he didn't feel like fighting at all.

The fight was the main event of the 14th fight card produced by KSW, a burgeoning promotion that is doing relatively big business in Poland. Pudzianowski is one of Poland's most popular athletes, and his involvement in MMA has coincided with something of a boom for the sport in his homeland.

But it wasn't a good fight by any stretch of the imagination. Butterbean was once at least a competent boxer, but that was many years and many pounds ago. Now he's 44 years old and so fat he can hardly throw a punch. The only person who looked worse than Butterbean on the KSW card was the hapless Polish singer who attempted to sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" but quit halfway through because he couldn't remember the words.

Pudzianowski says he's serious about MMA. If that's true, he should fight serious opponents.

Butterbean made it out of the event fairly unscathed, however the National Anthem is still lying there bleeding to death! Someone do something! LMFAO

 lol you're so confrontational. Tapping to strikes is a helluva lot easier to work than just about any other finish.

 Toney-Couture was a dive.  Bean-Pudz was an immovable object crashing into an unstoppable force.
