We are only a few weeks away from the Martial Arts Confrontation 15 mega card scheduled for March 19th in Warsaw’s Torwar Hall. This will be a historical event for MMA in Poland as the KSW ring will see the best Polish fighters squaring off against some great opponents from all over the world. Those who were lucky enough to buy the tickets for the event will experience an unforgettable show with amazing fights.
KSW promoters prepared a star-studded fight card with nine extra fights in five weight division. In the lightweight (under 70 kilograms) tournament final KSW Team standout Maciej Gorski will battle experienced Finn Niko Puhakka. The welterweight (under 77 kilograms) tournament commenced at the KSW Extra 2 – President Cup event will be concluded with the intriguing final featuring Polish representative Aslambek Saidov and German prospect Ruben Crawford.
The KSW 15 show has also two very interesting middleweight (under 84 kilograms) scraps line-up. Antoni Chmielewski will face Englishman James Zikic, while Krzysztof Kulak and Michal Materla will fight for the KSW Middleweight World title. Kulak and Materla already fought each other at KSW 6, when the Berserkers Team fighter earned the submission victory. Who will be better this time? We will see soon.
Heavyweights will be present at the Torwar show as well. Karol Bedorf will make his return to KSW ring, his opponent will be announced in the upcoming days.
Many KSW fans are very interested in Marcin Rozalski’s MMA debut. The popular Rozal is one the most successful K-1 fighters in Poland and now he decided to test his striking skills in the MMA ring. Rozalski was supposed to fight other Polish K-1 veteran Pawel Slowinski, however the Sting withdrew from the fight due to personal reasons. The replacement opponent will be revealed soon.
We waited almost two years for Lukasz Jurkowski’s return to his home promotion – KSW. The popular Juras has a tough come-back fight ahead of him, as he is scheduled to face top ten European light heavyweight Toni Valtonen.
The two headlining fights are the icing on the KSW 15 cake. The best light heavyweight in Poland Jan Blachowicz will try to prove his enormous talent against Rameu Thierry Sokoudjou. The Cameroonian fighter is a formidable warrior, who fought for the best organizations in the world: Pride, UFC & Strikeforce. The second main event will feature one the top middleweights in Europe Mamed Khalidov. Olsztyn-based fighter outings are always very exciting and it shouldn’t be different this time as he’ll face a yet-to-announced world class opponent.
All the vacant spots in the fight card will be filled up with the upcoming announcements. The Torwar event is already sold out, so in order to watch KSW 15 live we invite you all to tune in to Polsat (at 9:30 pm) and Polsat Sport (at 8 pm) for the live broadcast.
