And he sure doesn't sound like the "World's Scaredest Man" as Sylvia claimed the other day. Although once he's past Sylvia, he does have his eyes on a certain other Heavyweight. Just not right away. "Tim Sylvia is already past his prime, so the only thing he thinks about is the paycheck after the fight. When I’ll take him down and start landing my bombs, he will lose every desire to get up. His handshake at the press conference made me realize that he has a very soft body. I like big and soft people, they are fun to hit. I have to be careful from his striking in the early minutes of the fight, but I am still very confident that it will be a great victory. In two years from now, I would love to fight Fedor Emelianenko. He will rip my head off if we fight today, but in two years it could be a different story. It will be very interesting to see the bookmaker's odds for that fight."

I sure hope this dude doesn't go in there with the mindset that he should just try to survive the first couple of minutes. Regardless of whether or not he's over the hill Timmay will find his range and pepper his face if he's given a couple minutes to do so. That could put Pudz in for a loooonnnnng night

Yeah, I was kinda thinking the same thing. If anyone has to be careful for the first couple of minutes, it would probably be Tim...especially considering the fact that he loves to give his opponent the first crack.

On a side not: if Tim loses this fight, I can pretty much guarantee the UFC will never have him back.

Pudz is an animal. I was impressed by his leg kicks and aggression in his his 1st fight. I hope Sylvia doesnt look past him, but im sure he will. Pudz ftw by ko from low kicks lol

i don't know how anyone was impressed by this guy..every time he attacked he kept his hands low..and when he throw a leg kick..his hands were way down..that spells an easy ko victory for Big Tim..btw Pudzianowski gassed after a minute in the match..no cadio or just too much muscle mass..Big Tim should have an easy night with this guy...

A man that powerful might not need more than a minute to end the fight. I'm torn on this because i love comebacks (Sylvia) but a guy as strong as Pudz is interesting.

Tim Sylia hasn't got the chin to survive a hit from Pudz, nor does he have the technical awareness to pull of an amazing sub. His best chance is to try and tire out pudz, make his arms heavy.

Why does anybody still believe Sylvia is some great former champion, He fought a whole lot of one dimensional fighters in his UFC career, his greatest achievement was knocking out Arlovski when Arlovski was at his best. This isn't for the UFC Heavyweight championship, this is against a lazy former champion. It is very difficult to beat somebody that is three times as strong as you and in top shape, it's going to look like Donkey Kong kicking the **** out of Luigi.

I think Pudz will win this, by lifing timmy, shoulder pressing him for 2 reps, then slamming him. Then picking Tim up, squatting with him on his shoulders then throwing him out of the cage/ring...then celebrating with a protein shake

Big Tim might be getting a bit crusty but his overall skill set and EXP are a huge advantage. Muscles Ogorki looked pretty soppy in his debut... a long night is right.

Unless Mariusz somehow learned to slip a jab he is in for a long night.

sylvia did not look good at his last few fights, if he loses by KO in this one it could be all over. i dont think his career could take a KO loss the pudz.
