Either he's underrated by the UFC or KSW is paying him a good amount of money.

KSW pays him a lot. UFC offered him 20 to show 20 to win IIRC and he turned it down because he makes more than double in Poland. If he loses in the UFC his contracts go down when he returns to Poland. In a way it is a lose-lose situation for him.

I heard that as well Bresko. He is a big star in Poland. I have an ex girl friend out there, she knows two MMA fighters, Mamed and Pudz and she knows nothing of MMA at all. She made it sound like he has a good thing going on out there. I think he would fit in easily in the UFC though, good talent.

So apparently MMA is big in Poland and money is prosperous for fighters there.

At least you can find big KSW ads even on the freeway there. You won't find MMA ads in Germany or France shown to a bigger public. So it is comparably big in Poland. Even though he isn't a good fighter, basically everyone there knows Mariusz Pudzianowski.

and when someone finally puts the over hyped can on his ass with pure stand up (see robbie lawler)

it's like he did something special.
melvin beat the shit out of lawler what fight were you watching, manhoef has a suspect chin we all know that but its not due to his stand up which is excellent and the man put mark hunt to sleep at 185lbs so he deserves to get talked about when regarding his knockout power because nobody at 185 comes close to hitting as hard as he does.

Exactly. Melvin doesn't have a great chin and if you touch it you can put him out. But that doesn't change the fact that he hits like a freaking HW, actually he probably has more punching power then 90% of the HWs in MMA. His punching power is elite.

That makes him a force to be reckoned with but also gives opponents an obvious weakness.

Manhoef is a freaking mini Randleman. He should be winning fights.

Randleman was a wrestler, Manhoef a striker.

If anything he's the K1 Mike Tyson with a glass jaw.
