The MMA promotion Moosin is bringing some big fighters — in both name and size — right here to Chicago according to MMA Fighting. The event is scheduled to take place on October 9th at a venue that has yet to be determined.

Moosin wants to match up Tim Sylvia against Hong Man Choi and Kimbo Slice against world’s strongest man Mariusz Pudzianowski. Moosin executive Corey Fischer told MMA Fighting, “I would say the Kimbo-Pudzianowski fight is the furthest from being finished, but we’re trying to work on it and make it happen.” With Chicago’s huge Polish population, Pudzianowski against anyone would be a huge draw here. But pitting him against the former Elite XC and UFC fighter Kimbo makes it sensational.

Sylvia is coming off a win against Pudzianowski at the first Moosin event in May, “God of Martial Arts”. Slice hasn’t fought since losing by TKO to Matt Mitrione at UFC 113. He was cut by the UFC after that loss. Hong Man Choi is most famous for having fought Jose Canseco, as well as being submitted by Fedor Emelianenko on New Year’s Eve in 2007. He last fought in October of 2009, losing to Ikuhisa Minowa. He holds a 2-4 MMA record, with other losses to Badr Hari and Cro Cop.
