Dublin’s own Paul Redmond (12-6) vs. Polish veteran Łukasz Chlewicki (14-6-1) has today been added to KSW 40 at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland on October 22nd.
Hailing from the famous Team Ryano gym in North Dublin, Paul ‘Redser’ Redmond has long been one of the top fighters in Ireland. An impressive 7-1 run in Cage Warriors saw him signed to the UFC in 2015. After a pair of fights there he then signed to fight in the BAMMA promotion where he defeated tricky veterans Chris Stringer and Rob Sinclair and where he lost a narrow decision to KSW 40 co-main event fighter Norman Parke.
Over the years Redmond has developed a very solid striking game but it is his grappling his opponents much watch out for as if he grabs a hold of your leg then he will be taking it home with him. This will make for an interesting contest as the only time Łukasz Chlewicki has been submitted was back in 2005 to renowned grappler Demian Maia. The 37-year-old has been fighting for over 13 years and has faced the likes of Paul Daley, Artur Sowinski, Azi Thomas and Mateusz Gamrot over the years.
KSW 40 will be headlined by five-times world’s strongest man Mariusz Pudzianowski vs. James ‘The Hammer’ McSweeney in a heavyweight main event and the co-main event will feature the hotly anticipated rematch between champion Mateusz Gamrot and Norman Parke for the KSW lightweight title.
