KSW 45 will take place on October 6 from The SSE Arena, Wembley in London, England. The UK’s very own Phil De Fries (15-6) will defend his recently acquired KSW heavyweight title against the former champ Karol Bedorf (15-3) in the main event of KSW 45.
Stemming from the famous ‘Punk’s Not Dead’ slogan comes KSW’s twist, a re-imagining and our effort to show the world that MMA’s is indeed Not Dead. On October 6 London – the hotbed of the youthful rebellious punk scene – will witness one of the biggest MMA cards assembled there.
KSW 45 will feature a heavyweight title fight between the UK’s very own Phil De Fries and former champion Karol Bedorf in the main event. This card will also see the rematch between two of the world’s most promising welterweights in champion Dricus Du Plessis and Roberto Soldic, as well as the beginning of a four-man tournament between former champ Michal Materla, Olympic hero Damian Janikowski, UFC vet Scott Askham, and ‘The Giant’ Marcin Wojcik to crown a new KSW middleweight champion.
And who can forget the unpredictable heavyweight collision between the infamous Popek Monster and bodybuilder & social media star Erko Jun.
