Five-time world’s strongest man champion brutally KOs 23-stone unbeaten heavyweight in just 18-second in MMA Brawl


FORMER world's strongest man champion Mariusz Pudzianowski brutally knocked out Serigne Ousmane Dia in 18 seconds.

The super-heavyweight pair met in the cage with Polish promotion KSW, with their combined weight reaching almost 41 STONE.

Dia, a 23-stone Senegalese wrestler, came into the fight unbeaten at 2-0 against 16-7 veteran Pudzianowski.

And the experienced showed as early on 19-stone Pudzianowski landed with a perfectly timed right hand to close the show in quick fashion.

The Pole, 44, only made his debut at the age of 32 after deciding to pursue an MMA career opposed to strongman competitions.

He won 'world's strongest man' in 2002, 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2008 while taking silver in 2006 and 2009.

Pudzianowski now has 11 knockouts in his career and insisted there is still more to come.

He said: “The opponent could not be underestimated, he is a great boy.

“I worked honestly during the training period, as always. Mariusz is a craftsman who works, works, works, and it pays off in the end.

"I’ve been here for twelve years, thanks to the fans that allowed me to develop. I’m still here and I still love what I do.”

Pudzianowski revealed Dia, 45, protested the stoppage after the punch connected.

“‘This is the end now? How the fight is over?’. He was still a little dazed. He didn’t know what happened.

"But I’m not surprised. I have some strength. I hit really hard.”
