KSW standout Marcin Wrzosek (12-3, 3 KO, 5 Sub) will face one of the most dangerous jiu-jitsu players in the world Kleber Koike Erbst (21-4-1, 2 KO, 18 Sub) in his first featherweight title defense at KSW’s Colosseum event on May 27th at Warsaw’s National Stadium.
Boasting an impressive record of twenty-one wins and just four defeats, Koike is one of the most successful BJJ black belts in MMA today. With eighteen of his victories coming by way of submission, Erbst poses a difficult challenge for anyone he faces.
The Japanese native of Brazilian descent is coming off three consecutive submission victories, including a spectacular performance against Leszek Krakowski back in October. It will be the second time the 27-year-old challenges for the title. In 2015 at KSW 33 he lost a close decision to Artur Sowiński, after multiple submission attempts.
KSW will once again make history with its first ever stadium show scheduled for May 27th in Poland – Warsaw’s National Stadium.
The star-studded fight card features Mamed Khalidov (32-4-2, 12 KO, 17 Sub) defending his KSW middleweight crown for the second time, the World’s Strongest MMA fighter Mariusz Pudzianowski (10-5, 4 KO, 2 Sub) returning to the KSW cage and the long-awaited debut of Olympic bronze medalist in Greco-Roman wrestling Damian Janikowski. In the heavyweight title clash Fernando Rodrigues Jr (11-2, 8 KO, 2 Sub) squares off against the KSW superstar Marcin Różalski (6-4, 3 KO, 2 Sub).
