Polish promotion Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki announced Friday that five-time “World’s Strongest Man” Mariusz Pudzianowski will make his return to the ring against well-traveled Englishman James Thompson at KSW 16.

The heavyweight tilt is likely to headline or co-headline the card, which takes place at Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Pomeranian Voivodeship, Poland, on May 21 -- exactly one year after Pudzianowski was handed his first defeat by former UFC champion Tim Sylvia. Also expected to participate at KSW 16 is middleweight standout Mamed Khalidov.

Since losing to Sylvia, “Pudzian” has competed only once, forcing Eric “Butterbean” Esch to submit to punches in 76 seconds at September’s KSW 14. The muscle-bound 34-year-old has gone 3-1 since turning to MMA in late 2009, having bested then-Deep Megaton champion Yusuke Kawaguchi and former boxer Marcin Najman before running into Sylvia.

Why do they keep letting Thompson fight? The guy has been finished eleven times by strikes, 9 since 2006, and will probably be finished again by Pud.

Yeah the dude needs to call it a day. Find something else to do before the punches catch up to your overall health.

He's the only guy I've seen TKO'd for a burst cauliflower ear

A win over Thompson is a prerequisite on the win column of every over-hyped heavy weight headliner.
