KSW 70: Mariusz Pudzianowski vs. Michał Materla is this Saturday.
KSW 70 is this weekend and the main event will feature Mariusz Pudzianowski and Michał Materla colliding in the main event. For many, the world of KSW is new and wondrous. It’s been called PRIDE of Europe, an organization that has some of the best fighters in the area and isn’t afraid to get weird. Like that time they booked Pudzianowski against Senegalese wrestler Serigne Ousmane “Bombardier” Dia. It was a bout that had a 67 lbs weight difference.
Because KSW is just different like that. It has that “super fight/freak-fight” feeling of old PRIDE Fighting Championship. Hence the moniker. They’ve had some real bangers recently too, like Mamed Khalidov, who had an eight-year unbeaten streak. Then you have Roberto Soldić, aka Robocop, who since October of 2015 has lost twice. Once to unbeaten welterweight Yaroslav Amosov.
KSW has produced some real bangers too who have gone international. Names like Karolina Kowalkiewicz, Mateusz Gamrot and Jan Błachowicz.
So when we tell you to keep an eye on KSW 70, you really should. The main event will feature two KSW legends, with Pudzianowski and Materla facing off in the main event. Pudianowski is a former five-time world’s strongest man, and Materla has 31 career wins and is a former middleweight champion of the promotion.
The co-main sees former Chelsea FC goalkeeper Ricardo Prasel take on former UFC fighter Daniel Omelianczuk. You also have former international WBO, WBA, & IBF boxing champion Izu Ugonoh going up against Marek Samociuk. Plus, you’ll have former Glory middleweight champion Jason Wilnis looking to extend his unbeaten record to three wins, with a fight against fellow-undefeated prospect Radosław Paczuski. Both men are former kickboxing stars, but Wilnis is getting a lot of hype as he defeated UFC fighter Israel Adesanya in a kickboxing bout in 2017.
