Reminder: Two Socially Awkward Men Fight Tonight



Perhaps it was because of their cuts, but both fighters were uncooperative at the weigh-ins.

("I realize you’re self conscious, Tim,  but please take your floaty off while you weigh in. And Mariusz, we know you love your bling, but please.") 

Well, we were apparently all wrong.

The Moosin: Gods of Martial Arts fight between former UFC heavyweight champ Tim Sylvia (25-6) and "World’s Strongest Man" Mariusz Pudzianowski (2-0) is a go for tonight in Worchester, MA. Butterbean likely slept like a big fat baby last night knowing that the main event of his promotion’s show tonight finally received official approval, despite it being a major mismatch.

Both fighters have each had their share of facepalm moments.

You may recall the fabled story about Tim crapping his pants during his UFN 3 fight with Assuerio Silva, which he later confirmed in various interviews. Seriously, though? Who admits something like that? I’d deny it to the grave and play the stain on my shorts off as ass sweat or Xyience.

Although a lot less embarrassing than Tim’s story, for his part Mariusz spent 19 months in jail for assault in 2001. According to the "The Dominator," the incident was a misunderstood case of him "standing up for a smaller guy in trouble" even though he was accused by the victim of beating him up and stealing his gold chain.

If you ask me, the guy was asking for it.

If you want to watch their fight tonight with a different understanding of who these guys are, check out the videos below.

Poor Timmy. He gets pressured into forgoing his usual girl drinks for shots of tequila and boilermakers, only to find out it was all for naught since the girl he’s on the blind date with thinks he’s physically and sexually repulsive.

I’m not sure what Pudz was thinking here. Even with the female back-up singer, Mariusz still comes off looking like he just came from the Blue Oyster.

Gods of Martial Arts? Someone should sue em for false advertising

There was no gods of martial fighting on this card... the best they had was Bas on commentary....

That chick is not near hot enough to be so troubled and expect to get anywhere in life...

Also, in the "coming up next" thing at the end, that Wes Sims is a charmer!

What's the difference between a bitch and a slut?

did they really leave LaRosa-Modafferi off the fight poster? That's pretty bad given the other fights on this card.

I don't think the word "God" has ever been misused like it is for this show.
qrampagej- May 21, 2010 at 2:40 pm
Holy shit, can someone track down the video of Wes Sims? That looks like reality show gold!

Why was Dale Earnhardt sticking up for Mariusz in 2001? I'm very interested to see more in-depth reporting on this relationship.

Need a nickname for Pudkazoweeski.

Mariusz "Pounding the" Pudzianowski?
Kintamachikara- May 21, 2010 at 12:37 pm
was being kinda sarcastic but kinda serious too. I'm really not sure who is outclassing who here??.... washed up, bloated, out of shape former world champion, has been (grizzled veteran) or tough new up n cummer, with a few fights who's obviously in shape (strength-wise anyway) and is certifiably The World's Strongest Man (hungry young gun).

Anyway, should be a train wreck to watch. It's a horrible sight but I can't look away kind-o thing.

Not sure why but I'm hoping that Maine-iack-ack-ack get pounded by the Pud.

JZ89.... Nice Brian Regan reference.

where is the ken shamrock comment on this one? i love those comments and i have been trying to come up with a shitty fighter to take up for myself.
Elentius- May 21, 2010 at 12:05 pm
Hey Kinta,

I think they may be saying that Tim is the favorite even though he got knocked out quick fast and in a hurry by a boxer with only a couple MMA fights... yes yes I know it is a boxer and not a giant muscle, but the first guy Pud beat was said to be the favorite as well and had decent highlight reels.

On the other hand, if you are being sarcastic than I will simply say that I hope Pud destroys the big poop stain.

Moosin....Butter bean...Timmy...looks like they let a couple moose in.....and that's where the name comes from. Really though with those bloated bastards...they need to call it whale-in.
J-Dog- May 21, 2010 at 11:46 am
I'm with face7biter... that bitch was a dumb lush.
Kintamachikara- May 21, 2010 at 11:42 am
"...finally received official approval, despite it being a major mismatch."
I don't think it's such a major mismatch. IMO Tim has a legitimate chance of beating Pud-kapow-ski

LOL! I almost choked on my lunch reading that comment! So funny!
