KSW 33 Review

Poland’s leading MMA promotion KSW returned to Krakow, Poland for KSW 33 after treating us to KSW 32 in London, England last month.

The show, headlined by a huge European Middleweight Title fight between Champion Michal Materla and challenger Mamed Khalidov, may have started off slow with a number of decision victories but soon picked up as it headed towards the top of the card.

The main event had been a fight, 5 years in the making and many have argued that these two 185lbers are the best two outside of the UFC. Materla went into the bout as the Champion but Khalidov made short work of the Champion knocking him out inside 31 seconds and racking up his eleventh win on the bounce. You can check out the fight ending sequence in the video below;

Elsewhere on the card there was another big stoppage, this time at the hands of the ladies on the card as Ariane Lipski stopped Katarzyna Lubonska in devastating fashion, as you can see below;
