    Pudzianowski lost? I guess I just expect more from someone who can pull a truck uphill. Someone that ridiculously strong should be dominating in an mma fight.

    YouTube- Hanma Yujiro vs all fighters

    Pudzianowski did show that he can hold his own though. He held his own for over a round against a champion. He got dominated but he could still fight. He does not have a glass jaw. I think this guy will make in mma he only needs more fight experiance and maybe learn how to capitalize on that freakish strength. This guy could easily be another unstoppable force in mma.

    Just being the World's Strongest Man does not make you Yujiro Hanma.

    Yeah...I know. But I do expect to see some freakish acts of strength and power from him when he fights.

    I was talking with my instructor about Pudzianowski's gassing out in the fight. He said it's because Pudzianowski sheds over 30lbs to fight and that is what is killing his stamina. Thoughts?

    I don't think Mariusz sheds over 30lbs to fight. He's looking much smaller now than he did for WSM 2009.

    There have been some freakish acts of strength/power, mainly in the way he throw people to the ground like children. Unfortunately, he does this using up all of his strength, and gasses.

    you can only toss 300 pounds across the cage so many times before you've got nothing left.

    mariusz knows he's stronger, but he shouldn't use 100% of his strength all the time. a lot of people new to grappling do this and gas very fast despite the fact that they may be very fit.

    you need to choose the right moment for power. if it's not working, you stop and reset so you have enough gas in case your opponent recovers.

    i'm not saying pudz is an endurance athelete, i'm saying he could last a lot longer if he didn't approach fighting like a lifting event.
