Video: Mariusz Pudzianowski knocks out ‘Bombardier’ in just 18 seconds at KSW 64

New, comments

Mariusz Pudzianowski needed just 18 seconds to wallop the massive Serigne Ousmane Dia—better known as “Bombardier”—ending the KSW 64 co-main event with a thrilling knockout.

Watch the amazing finish above.

Bombardier, competing in just his third pro MMA bout, marched right into the waiting hands of Pudzianowski, his own arms swinging out and hanging low, which left him exposed to the fists of the five-time World’s Strongest Man titleholder. A right hook from Pudzianowski completely shut Bombardier down and left the massive super heavyweight limp against the cage.

This was a long-awaited bout for the KSW faithful, with Pudzianowski and Bombardier first being booked to meet on March 20 only for Bombardier to be hospitalized on fight day with acute appendicitis. Pudzianowski went on to fight replacement Nikola Milanovic instead, who he beat by first-round TKO.

Pudzianowski has now won four straight fights, all by KO/TKO, his best stretch of success since 2015.
