Pudzian mania hits MMA this weekend
Pudzian mania hits MMA this weekend

The weekend picks are back. I thought about letting this feature die, but after my horrible performance on the TUF 10 Finale (4-5 record, the only sub .500 of my career) I had to save face. This week we take a look at KSW 12, Jeff Monson‘s ability to fight in two places at once, Bitetti Combat and more. As always for UFC 107 picks check out the PROMMA.info staff picks coming out later this week.

KSW 12
Marcin Najman vs. Mariusz Pudzianowski
The five-time World’s Strongest Man champion will make his MMA debut this weekend. Standing in the way of a glorious debut is Marcin Najman, a boxer who once fought for the Polish Heavyweight boxing title. When the bout was first announced I had visions of Ray Mercer standing over Tim Sylvia’s limp body. However, I decided to check out Najman’s record. At the time he fought them, his opponents have a combined record of 53-218-7. Only two of his opponents had winning records, and he is 13-4. Pudzianowski should be able to push for a clinch and win by grinding out his opponent.
Pick = Mariusz Pudzianowski
