Top European middleweight and Elite XC and Sengoku vet Mamed Khalidov will face former UFC contender and Team Quest fighter Matt Lindland at KSW 15 on March 19 in Warsaw, Poland.

Khalidov recently defeted Yuki Sasaki at the Sengoku: Soul of Fight event on Dec. 30. He has good stand up but his limited wrestling skills could be the key for this fight, with Lindland an Olympic-level Greco-Roman wrestling practitioner.

Also at KSW 15, UFC, PRIDE, and Strikeforce veteran Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou will fight KSW light heavyweight champ Jan Blachowicz. This is big fight for John and a win over Sokoudjou could get him a shot in Bellator or Strikeforce.

Former judoka Antoni Chmielewski, fresh off of a decision win over Victor Nobrega, will fight James Zikic at KSW 15. This will be condender match for the chance to face current KSW middleweight champion Krzysztof Kulak .

Also at KSW 15, lightweight champion Maciej Gorski will defend his title against Nikko Pukhaka from Finland. This fight also represents the finals of a lightweight tournament that began at KSW 14.
