A heavyweight bout between Mariusz Pudzianowski and Sean McCorkle looks to serve as the KSW 23 co-main event

Headlined by a bout between Mamed Khalidov and Melvin Manhoef, KSW 23 has added another marque matchup between heavyweights Mariusz Pudzianowski and Sean McCorkle. KSW 23 takes place Jun. 8 from the Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland.

A former 'Worlds Strongest Man', Pudzianowski has fought a who's who of formally notable heavyweights clinging to the edges of relevancy. Fighting nearly exclusively in his native Poland, 'Pudzian' has enjoyed mixed results under the KSW banner since turning pro in 2009. With back to back wins over Bob Sapp and Christos Piliafas, Pudzianowski could get a bit of streak going with a win over McCorkle.

After putting together a lengthy six-fight win streak since bouncing out of the UFC, McCorkle has gone on to lose three straight. Interestingly enough, he's fought in 10 different promotions in 10 fights. His upcoming bout with KSW would make that 11.

Also on the card, former 'Ultimate Fighter' winner Kendall Grove faces Michal Materla for the vacant KSW middleweight strap while Karolina Kowalkiewicz fights Marta Chojnoska for the women's 55 kilogram title.
