Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Mariusz Pudzianowski’s Next Opponent: This Fat Guy

Five months after hacking through Marcin Najman in his MMA debut, five-time World’s Strongest Man winner Mariusz Pudzianowski will return to the cage at KSW 13 (May 7th, Warsaw), likely against 40-year-old Polish fighter Robert Paczków. A former Greco-Roman wrestling competitor and Sumo champion, Paczków’s only MMA fight took place at a Cage Rage event in December 2007 against TUF 10 vet James McSweeney, who was 1-0 at the time. As you can see in the video above, McSweeney was taken down and smothered by the 300+ pound Pole in short order. At the vid’s 2:10 mark, McSweeney is forced to tap to what the ring announcer calls an "arm choke," but what looked more like a reverse mooboplata from our angle. Though Pudzianowski will still enjoy a strength advantage against Paczków, it’ll be interesting to see if Paczków’s sheer girth and grappling prowess will pose problems for the 33-year-old strongman. If you can read Polish, you’ll find more info on KSW 13 right here.

After the jump: A rockin’ music video from Mariusz and his brother Krystian (aka Pudzian Band). Plus, Mariusz shows off his pad on the Polish version of MTV Cribs.

And McSweeney didn't kill himself after that? Amazing.

If Chris Farley and Patton Oswalt had a love child, it would most definitely look like Paczkow..

How is Mariusz Pudzianowski going to get hyped as a legitimate opponent for Bobby Lashley if he keeps fighting tomato cans like these?

If Peter Griffin ever decided to take up cage fighting, he very possibly would look like Robert Paczkow.......
