Two-weight KSW champion Mateusz ‘Gamer’ Gamrot (15-0) will finally, after fifteen months away, return to action at KSW 53 in Łódź, Poland on March 21. The featherweight and lightweight champ comes back to face Brazil’s Edimilson ‘Kevin’ Souza (18-5) in a non-title bout set for 155lbs. Souza went 3-1 in the UFC before losing a decision to Patricky Pitbull in the main event of Bellator 152. The 35-year-old enters KSW having won his past two fights on the Brazilian scene.
This news also comes with the announcement that five-time world’s strongest man Mariusz Pudzianowski has had to withdraw from KSW 53 due to an undisclosed injury and as a result Roberto Soldić (17-3) versus MMA legend Marius Žaromskis (22-9) will now be the new main event.
