    The Pudz fights again...

    ... And he won, at least according to the judges:




    Thompson was rightfully pissed:

    He weighed in at 255. He's not even a freak show anymore. I think I just gave my last **** about his MMA career.

    To be fair and honest, nobody becomes a top level fighter with a few fights, not even the WSM champion, let's give him a break, at least, you can't tell he's not trying.
    Also, his management sucks because, with no prior experience, they had him fighting a former champ(Sylvia, even out of shape), and oponents definently NOT beginners in any sence; they went right away for the big bucks, just because he was a strongman champion, he had a "name".
    Fighting isn't just about max bench press/squat/dead lifting, otherwise Bob Sapp would own the heavyweight boxing championship.

    Yes, he's just a "show" for me, but I can't blame him for his choice to fight; he'd NEVER have earned that kind of money out of strongman competitions.
    He'll never become a champion in MMA, but so what? There already exist hundrends of "fighters" who are " a joke", despite having trained specifically for fighting and not for lifting huge, WSM-kind heavy weights.

    He should get some DVD's on how to avoid promotions with biased officiating.

    Now that I think about it, those would've came in handy years ago when he fought Kimbo as well.

    Well eh, his skill level will always be of a journeyman. Those fights you mentioned also give him the best paydays.

    It's obvious he'll never be considered amongst the elite, but I'll be damned if he didn't deserve to win both those fights.

    The reason he was brought in to fight Kimbo and the Pudz was that he's known for having a really soft jaw (Ten knockout defeats will earn you that reputation). The expected outcome was that Thompson would be spectacularly knocked out, thus enhancing their star power. Thompson fucked that up three times.

    Hopefully, Pudzianowski will at least keep the Polish public interested in MMA long enough for some legitimate, non-freakshow stars to emerge.

    I hate Thompson. Perhaps the most experienced "giant" fighter around and yet he is so unbelievably sloppy. Does he not have a proper camp at all or is he just not really that naturally skilled?

    Probably doesn't have a lot of partners. I've come across guys that will only take instruction from people who can kick their ass.
