Fight Picks Analysis:
If physical appearance determined the winner of fights than the 6’1” 273 Lb. mountain of muscle Pudzianowski would steamroll the roly poly bodied Sylvia. This is organized fisticuffs however and skill trumps brute strength most of the time. The 34-year old Sylvia is past his prime but is still a well-rounded and experienced pro. The MMA Moosin Tim Sylvia vs. Mariusz Pudzianowski Fight Odds have Pudzianowski as a +180 MMA Odds underdog.
The “Dominator” Mariusz has no fundamental skill to speak of and really doesn’t possess dangerous striking power despite his awesome strength. Pudzianowksi could pop a man’s head off with a headlock but he is hittable, slow and has a very small gas tank. The 6’8” 305 Lb. Sylvia should be able to use movement and straight punches to dominate the shorter clumsy Pudzianowski. Go heavy on Tim Sylvia for 3 UNITS on the MMA betting money line.
