Mariusz Pudzianowski Likes To Hit Big, Soft People Like Tim Sylvia
(mmamania.com)
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."

At least in the eyes of upcoming opponent Tim Sylvia. On his upcoming fight with the multi-time World's Strongest Man, Sylvia said "He's a big boy, but I can tell he's scared. He wouldn't stare at me straight on, eye to eye. He kept turning away. So he's definitely worried already."
