Mariusz Pudzianowski’s win over James Thompson changed to a No Contest

Controversy struck Polish MMA organization KSW this weekend at their KSW 17: Revenge event. The co-main event bout Mariusz Pudzianowski vs. James Thompson went to a decision after two rounds and instead of going to a third round overtime, Pudzianowski was declared the winner despite clearly dropping the first round. Two judges scored the fight for the former strongman while the third judge had it even after two.

KSW officials came clean today about a scoring error made by judge Piotr Baginski. The bout should have gone to a third round, but since that is not possible today, the fight has been ruled a No Contest. No word if officials will try to put together a third fight between the two in order to settle things.

Before a third fight can come together though, Thompson will need to be convinced to fight for the organization again. Following the announcement of the decision, Thompson grabbed the mic and went off on the promotion saying, “”F—— joke. Give Mariusz a big round of applause. Come on. What a f——- joke. I thought KSW was really trying to be serious. If you can watch that back and call that serious, then you’re f—– and KSW is going down the f—— toilet.”

    This poor guy can’t catch a break; refs and judges have definitely done him some disservices over the years.

    If I were James, every fight agreement would include a “buy me dinner” clause, since he seems to always get fucked.

    Thompson has had 17 fights since 2005. He’s gone 4-12-1nc in that time. Even this fight and the Kimbo fight were over turned he still only be 6-11 in over 6 years and 10 of those losses have been by KO or Sub. No way in hell could he hang in Bellator.

    If guys won fights by just looking scary, James would be close to undefeated.

    I’m with Edub on this one. Lashley v. Pudz. Watch both these juiceheads gas after the first 90 seconds and huff and puff through an awful fight.

    The tag line for the event would be “Got ‘roids?”
