Paul Slowinski Settles the Score with Peter Graham While Looking Huge in Australia

Paul Slowinski and Peter Graham met for the third time over the weekend after trading wins over the past few years only for Paul Slowinski to score a third round knockout and secure the ISKA World Heavyweight Championship. Reports from fans in Australia say that Slowinski went on a tear in the third round, dropping Graham a total of three times; the first time he dropped Graham with leg kicks, while the second and third were due to body blows and caused the fight to be stopped.

The interesting note from those in attendance is that "The Sting" Slowinski is apparently in the best shape of his career now. One person even told that Slowinski had an "Ubereem-like transformation." That is, as always, a big deal for a guy like Slowinski, who at 6'3" and 240 lbs (190cm, 110kg) most of the time, adding some more muscle mass and weight could only help him compete against Super Heavyweights at a higher level.

Slowinski has always been a fighter who has just been on the cusp of greatness but has been held back by losses to more aggressive fighters like Ben Edwards, Gokhan Saki and Melvin Manhoef, as well as defensive fighters like Remy Bonjasky and Semmy Schilt. Slowinski is on a 5-fight winning streak now and is looking to fight Errol Zimmerman in the fall. We are still on the lookout for photos or videos from the event, but nothing yet.

The LIVE stream of Battle in the Desert 3 is tonight, but check out the weigh-in results here

I'm not even sure how to approach the level of professionalism that's endemic to I can't open an article with an incoherent ranting about something I ate the previous night followed by a loosely associated Christopher Llyod reference. That's not going to work on this side of the MiddleEasy Network. These guys are kickboxing and Muay-Thai knowledge warriors. For today, I will play the guy in the back of the class copying off of Dave Walsh, Rian Scalia and Sam Sattler's homework. For the first time in the MiddleEasy Network history, I will leave in order to covertly hop over to and cover Lion Fight Promotions 'Battle in the Desert 3' being held in Primm, Nevada (yes, that's the same place Fallout 3: New Vegas took place). The event will be streamed LIVE at GFL at 8:00 pm EST so get your unhealthy and greasy snacks ready.

Here are the weigh-in results for the event, which also include some nifty pictures.

Sakmongkol Sitchuchoke “Zingano“ vs. Cosmo Alexandre - Muay-Thai giant, Cosmo Alexandre will face off against fellow Muay-Thai giant (and Lumpinee champion) Sakmongkol Sitchuchoke “Zingano“ in a middleweight superfight. Brazil meets Thailand, you don't want to miss this one. You meaning myself, at least.
