When “Bombardier” (Serigne Ousmane Dia) is referred to as massive, it’s for good reason. Ahead of his main event showdown with Polish strongman Mariusz Pudzianowski at KSW 59 this Saturday, the Senegalese behemoth tipped the scales at a whopping 333lbs.
In comparison, “Pudzian” came in at a comparatively svelte 265lbs. Good thing the main event is a super heavyweight affair.
KSW 59 marks the return to action for Pudzianowski after over a year away from the cage. He’ll be looking to build off a win over Erko Jun is his last outing. At 44-years of age, Pudzianowski’s fighting days will soon be coming to an end, so he can be forgiven for taking fun, freakshow style fights like this one.
Two fighters missed weight for the KSW 59 card at Friday’s weigh-in. Krystian Kaszubowski missed the welterweight limit, while Łukasz Rajewski was heavy for his lightweight bout. Both men were fined a percentage of their fight purse.
KSW 59 takes place Saturday, March 20 in Lodz, Poland. The event streams live on KSW TV.
