KSW 1 tournament winner Lukasz ‘Juras’ Jurkowski (15-10) is donning the MMA gloves once more after a six year absence from the sport and will compete at the monumental KSW 39 stadium show in front of around 60,000 fans.
Back in 2004 Jurkowski made his professional MMA debut and, after winning three fights in one night, he etched his place in Polish MMA history as the very first KSW tournament champion. He followed this up with appearances in the finals of KSW 2 & 3, losing to another Polish legend in Antoni Chmielewski on both occasions.
Over the next six years the 35-year-old served as one of KSW’s big draws and in appeared in no less than five co-main events. In total Jurkowski holds a 13-5 record in the KSW arena and holds notable victories over Attila Vegh, Moise Rimbon, and Igor Pokrajac.

His last appearance in the cage came at KSW 15 in 2011 in a losing effort against Finnish veteran Toni Valtonen. Since then though Jurkowski has stayed with the juggernaut promotion and has served as their commentator and weigh-in announcer for many events.
When I reached out, KSW officials stated that this deal is a fight-by-fight scenario with Jurkowski and that his opponent will be announced soon.
KSW 39 will be available to watch around the world on KSWTV.com and tickets are currently on sale from Ebilet.pl.
