On May 7th 2010 Polish fans once again will get the chance to see world class MMA action. For the first time in history Martial Arts Confrontation show will take place in Spodek in Katowice, Silesia, a venue, which hosted the biggest and most prestigious sports and entertainment events in Poland. – Warsaw’s Torwar hall was bursting at seams during our last event, many fans couldn’t buy the tickets because they were completely sold out. We decided to make next KSW available for wider audience, that’s why we chose Katowice – KSW Federation owners Maciej Kawulski and Martin Lewandowski say.

The promoters, in order to provide MMA fans with the maximum dose of adrenaline, prepared two co-main attractions. The first one will feature the best Polish and European middleweight fighter and hopefully Sengoku champion Mamed Khalidov. Chechen born warrior will perform in front of the Polish crowd for the first time since May 2009. KSW Team member will defend his 95 kilograms World Title, which he won knocking out Daniel Acacio last year.

World’s Strongest Man Mariusz Pudzianowski will fight in the second co-main event. Mariusz plans to get another victory under his belt, after a very successful debut on KSW 12 in December. – We will soon reveal the opponents for our fighters ? KSW owner say. – Once the contracts are signed, we will inform the media – they add.

The above are not the sole attractions of this card, as we are going to see another two title fights. KSW veteran and very experienced mixed martial artist from Czestochowa Krzysztof Kulak will square off against Vitor Nobrega. The talented Brazilian grappler was the last victor of the series of tournaments held by our promotion, that’s why in the Kulak vs. Nobrega bout KSW Federation 85 kilograms World Title will be at stake!

The heaviest competitors will fight for another belt. The best two fighters who competed in the first round of the heavyweight tournament at our last event in Warsaw will now meet in the ring. State wrestling champion David Olivia from USA will battle against Karate black belt Latvian Konstantin Gluhov.

Last, but not least after 18-month break we will start another 95 kilograms tourney. The winner of KSW 9 tournament Jan Blachowicz is so far the first confirmed participant for this prestigious competition.

In summary, the thirteenth Martial Arts Confrontation show will be held in Katowice on May 7th 2010. We will see two KSW World titles on the line, the light-heavyweight championship match will feature Khalidov and Kulak and Nobrega will battle for the middleweight belt. Also on the card Pudzianowski will have his second MMA bout, Olivia will face Gluhov in the heavyweight tournament final and a brand new 95 kilograms tournament will commence.

MMA fans will be treated to another spectacular show. It is going to be another huge event organized by KSW Federation in the last ten months. The previous ones were recognized as the shows of the century. What will we call the upcoming one?

  1. I was told by Artur, KSW promoter, that the Sylvia fight is not happening. Actually, here’s how he put it: “Not. He won’t certainly reach this contest!”

    I thought it all sounded like a joke anyway to be honest. Where did that even come from? Pudz would kill Tim and leave a little greasy spot in the ring that smelled like poop.
