KSW 16 Videos: Lindland vs. Khalidov, Pudzianowski vs. Thompson

(Matt Lindland vs. Mamed Khalidov)

From today’s KSW event at the Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland. The night’s headliner between Mariusz Pudzianowski and James Thompson — which turned out to be a surprisingly entertaining back-and-forth brawl — is after the jump. (Damn, check out those shots Thompson survives at the 4:27 mark.) Go to for the rest of the videos from the event; full results are here.

"surprisingly entertaining back-and-forth brawl" - are you serious? Some of the other fights were excellent, I'm really starting to wonder whether or not Khalidov could make it in the US for example, but the Pudz fight was completely ridiculous. Neither fighter had energy to even move after 2 minutes and I've never shittier boxing than what they did in that fight.

reportedly Pudzianowski already gassed in the warmup

If I ever thought that there would be a CP thread boasting Thompsons chin...

Beating Thompson doesn't add any credibility to your freakshow career so being beaten by an out of shape Thompson must suck.

Do you guys see Trigg vs Phillips? Holy cow, Trigg was cutting him up with scissors. Let this be a reminder to always have the doc put vaseline on your face before competition. Or sex

Goog, its only gay if you are gay. Otherwise, its just law of the jungle.

Both Standing and on the ground, Pudzianowski really needs to work on his guard.

@mother- Well, if they ever make enough Hulk sequals for Phil Collins to get a look in, we know who's a prime candidate for his bulky alter-ego!

Damn, has Thompson got a chin of cold forged steel or does Phil Collins, sorry, Mariusz atualy punch like a 7 year old girl with asthma?

Thompson is always very game, but is basically a big lump. Shows how far Su-su-sudeee-o has to go.

Is it gay that I always root for the guy with the better physique?
Naked Rear Poke- May 21, 2011 at 11:34 pm
@Higgz - You're right, he didn't seem to be complaining about it. The over-enthusiastic towel boys were a bit much. How much fluid spills in the corner during a break anyway?? Maybe Mariusz peed himself. Those guys could wring out the towels and sell the remnants at local gyms, it's practically pure juice!
Higgz- May 21, 2011 at 11:09 pm
@Naked Rear Poke - I agree, although, Thompson isn't known for his cardio either so I'm sure he didn't mind :)

Jesus Lindland looked totally out of his element. It kinda looks like he is getting worse and worse. He better hang 'em up.

That was some awkward-assed grappling between those meatballs. Funny fight. I'd WAY rather get punched by one of those guys than Jose Aldo.

It's time for Matt Lindland to pick up a sponsorship from a good smelling salts company.
David_Banner- May 21, 2011 at 8:01 pm
Bye bye Matt. Go back to selling used cars and sueing your friends.
Naked Rear Poke- May 21, 2011 at 7:57 pm
...Didn't help the gasping, purple monster much anyway I guess.
Naked Rear Poke- May 21, 2011 at 7:55 pm
Is it just me, or did Mariusz seem to receive a bit of hometown favouritism here? The bogus glove repair halfway through round 1 that wasn't exactly rushed? The TWO AND A HALF!!! minute break between rounds (helped along by some excessive mat mopping)? His cardio is infamously bad, it just stinks a bit of 'let's give our guy a break whenever we can' syndrome.

Watching it on mute, it kinda looks like the ref defeated Lindland via rape choke...
Ring_Rust619- May 21, 2011 at 7:30 pm
Since when did Thompson get away from the gong and dash gameplan??
Payday- May 21, 2011 at 6:34 pm
DAMN! Thompson's head must be made of granite...
ShortBus- May 21, 2011 at 5:38 pm
That was quite a battle between Thompson and Pudzianowski! Not very technical but it was balls to the wall. I didn't even recognize Thompson. He must've put on 100 lbs since last I seen him. Damn! Matt Lindland can't catch a break anymore. I swear he grew that beard with the hope that it would provide some cushion on his chin. Lot of good that did him since he still lost conscientiousness in yet another fight.

All guys who are afraid of a shot or have been KO'd easy before wear big ass beards. Andrei Arlovski, Matt Lindland, Lesnar, Randy, BJ Penn, Urijah, Belfort... ok, I made up the last ones.
RaginAsian- May 21, 2011 at 5:19 pm
Looked like he was out on his feet and more punching woke him back up.
just some dong- May 21, 2011 at 5:15 pm
My god, Lindland sucks shit.
