Butterbean: Pudz punches like a girl

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

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.
