New MMA promotion Moosin is scheduling their second event following a successful debut with headliners Tim “The Maniac” Sylvia vs the former worlds strongest man Mariusz Pudzianowsk. The event is scheduled to take place Oct. 9 in Chicago, IL.
Moosin PR executive Corey Fischer has confirmed that both former headliners (Sylvia, Pudzianowsk) will be featured on the October card. The plans for the two stars is to get Sylia matched against 7-foot-2 Korean Hong Man Choi, and a shocking possible match-up of Kimbo Slice to the organization by Pudzianowsk.
Choi and Slice are yet to be confirmed. “I would say the Kimbo-Pudzian fight is the furthest from being finished, but we’re trying to work on it and make it happen,” said Fischer .
MMAFighting.com will be meeting with with Choi and his representatives tomorrow, Fischer said that he believes the Sylvia-Choi fight is a strong probability. The fight nearly happened at last year’s Dynamite 2009 show in Japan, but fell through.
“I think after we meet, we can get that done,” he said. “It will be a fun fight.”
“Chicago is a place with the biggest Polish market in America,” he said. “We’ll have Pudzianowski, but we’re also going to have fighters from all over the world. Moosin is not just about American fights. We want to bring in star-studded fighters from all over.”
The company’s first U.S. show, Moosin: God of Martial Arts, drew around 6,500 fans to the DCU Center in Worcester, Mass. on May 21. In the main event, Sylvia defeated Pudzianowski via tapout due to strikes in the second round.
