What Happens When the Strongest Man in the World Faces Off Against the Word’s Largest Boxer!

For a duel that came down to mass, it was a good one!

A heavyweight fight like no other

This was a duel that weighed heavily on the scales. Back in 2010, Mariusz Pudzianowski and Eric ‘Butterbean’ Esch clashed in the ring to settle a dispute (it seems this was already fashionable at the time).

Butterbean had made fun of the Polish bodybuilder's fighting technique, saying that he ‘fights like a girl.’ So the appointment was made to settle this little matter properly.

A swift victory by submission

Mariusz Pudzianowski, already well-known in bodybuilding circles and a convert to an MMA fighter defeated Eric ‘Butterbean’ Esch by submission after only a few minutes of fighting. Once on the ground, Butterbean and his 31 stone could do nothing against the strength of his opponent.

A big victory for the Pole that Butterbean could hardly justify. ‘I never said that he fought like a girl. I said he hit like a girl. His takedown was good. I can't complain. He won.’

No hard feelings, then?
