The first-ever major pay-per-view Massachusetts MMA event is one step closer to reality with weigh-ins officially complete for tonight’s “Moosin MMA: God of Martial Arts” event.
The event, which features several fighters familiar to MMA fans, will take place at the DCU Center in Worcester and airs on pay-per-view for $29.95.
Headliner and former UFC champion Tim Sylvia weighed 305 pounds for his super-heavyweight bout with five-time World’s Strongest Man champion Mariusz Pudzianowski, who weighed 273 pounds. That is a far cry from Sylvia’s days in the UFC and their heavyweight division.
The full weigh-in results included:
- Marius Pudzianowski (273) vs. Tim Sylvia (305)
- Josh Barnes (262) vs. Travis Wiuff (253)
- Travis Lutter (185) vs. Rafael Natal (185)
- Mike Campbell (156) vs. Yves Edwards (157)
- Tara LaRosa (129) vs. Roxy Modafferi (128)
- Lukasz Jurowski (214) vs. Ho Jin Kim (196)
- Ralph Johnson (171) vs. Forrest Petz (170.5)
- Matt Lee (170.5) vs. Brett Oteri (175.5)
- Fred Belleton (185) vs. Anthony Lapsley (185)
- Paul Barry (245) vs. Stipe Miocic (241)
Pudzianowski (2-0) has only competed in his home country of Poland thus far. He has been a big draw for the show due to Boston’s large Polish community, although oddsmakers have him as a significant underdog for the fight.
