Retrospective: Worlds Strongest Man MMA Debut Video – CRUSHING


Mariusz Pudzianowski is a five-time “World’s Strongest Man” winner. Though he had very little mixed martial arts training leading into his MMA debut, he did own a green belt in Kyokushin karate (whatever that counts for). Pudzianowski’s MMA debut was held on Dec. 11, 2009, at KSW 12.

He was matched with Marcin Najman, who he quickly sent crashing to the mat with leg kicks. Once Najman was on the canvas, the fight was over as Pudzianowski came down on him like the hulk, smashing him with ground and pound. Though Mariusz has not had too much success in mixed martial arts since then, he continues to be a Polish icon who can put people in seats.
