A recently-reported event expected to be headlined by former UFC champion Tim Sylvia vs. five-time “World’s Strongest Man” Mariusz Pudzianowski, originally scheduled for April 23, has been postponed until May 21 to resolve a television conflict, promoter Corey Fischer recently told MMA Fighting.
The card, which is co-promoted by Eric “Butterbean” Esch and Korean-based promotion Moosin, will still take place at the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts near Boston and is likely feature Houston Alexander vs. Seth Petruzelli, Yves Edwards, and Rich Clementi.
Sylvia (25-6) hasn’t fought since snapping a three-fight losing streak, which included an 9-second knockout to Ray Mercer, with a first-round TKO of Jason Riley. Pudzianowski (1-0), who has also been announced for a May 7 fight in his native Poland, made his MMA debut in December, forcing former boxer Marcin Najman to submit to strikes in just 43-seconds.
An official announcement is expected this week.
