Immediately following the bout, minds of MMA fans the world over went to work, imagining the possibility of what a Pudzianowski vs. Fedor, or a Pudzianowski vs. Lesnar fight might look like one day.

The gargantuan has only had one fight thus far. Let’s give the guy a chance to get some experience under his belt. He obviously knows the dedication it takes to be an elite level athlete, and if he continues to apply that focus to developing his fighting skills… he is going to be a hand full for anyone, to say the least.

Pudzianowski started the fight by delivering brutal leg kicks to Najman. These are the same kicks that broke one of his sparring partner”s legs with one blow in preparation for this fight.

The leg kicks dropped Najman to the mat, from there, Pudzianowski used his massive arms and fists to pulverize the boxer with ground and pound until the referee was forced to stop the fight just 44 seconds into the first round.
