UFC can't get to Boston soon enough. The journey to get mixed martial arts legalized in Massachusetts wasn't easy and now the first show featuring professionals on May 21 has a chance to be embarrassing.
Tim Sylvia, a former UFC champ with 31 fights under his belt, is fighting 1-0 World Strongman champ Mariusz Pudzianowski. It's the kind of fight we see in Japan not the U.S. It's actually shocking Pudzianowski can even get licensed with such a huge experience gap. Problem No. 2 is that main event may not even happen because Pudzianowski also has a fight scheduled two weeks before the Worchester card back in his native Poland.
