If you have been following Mariusz Pudzianowski’s mixed martial arts career then you will be happy to hear that Mariusz will be one of the stars headlining the show-stopping KSW 35 mixed martial arts event this May!
Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki (KSW) has been Poland’s premiere mixed martial arts (MMA) organisation since 2004. Famous across Europe for its extravagant arena events and spectacular opening ceremonies, each KSW event comprises of four man and eight man tournaments which match some of the best known and most feared MMA fighters in the world against one another.
Speaking on Polish television, KSW co-owner Maciej Kawulski announced several of the fighters who will be headlining KSW 35 this May. Kawulski enthused how;
“We are at this moment at the stage of planning three main events. Set to appear is Mamed Khalidov, and Mariusz Pudzianowski, and there is a high probability that Michael Materla will also be on the card. All in excellent clashes. I can not reveal who’s is fighting who, but I can say that each of these fights will be interesting. However, it is no secret that Michael Materla is trying to face Kendall Grove, they already fought once and it was ‘fight of the year’ in 2014 and it could be once again. We know what is being said in regards to Mamed Khalidov, but I’ll leave that as a secret for now”.
Although the full details of these tournaments have not yet been officially released, promoters have suggested that Pudzianowski, Khalidov and Materla will also be joined by fellow MMA pros Kendall Grove and Marcin Rozalski at KSW 35 which will be hosted within the Ergo Arena in Gdansk on 28th May 2016.
Mariusz’s last KSW appearance was on 31st October 2015 at the KSW 32 : Road To Wembley when he fought Peter Graham. The event marked the first time that a KSW event was ever hosted outside of Poland. Although Mariusz lost this match via TKO (Strikes, Round 2, 2:00), he still retains an impressive 9 Wins, 4 Losses, 1 No Contest record which he has accrued during his six year career as a professional MMA fighter. Who will Mariusz fight against in KSW 35? Will he be victorious? We’ll soon see!
