Melvin Manhoef vs. Mamed Khalidov headlines KSW 23 on June 8th

Suhaimi Abdullah

Middleweights Melvin Manhoef and Mamed Khalidov are scheduled to compete in the main event of KSW 23 in Gdansk, Poland later this month.

A potential for middleweight fireworks is scheduled for June 8th at KSW 23 in Gdansk, Poland. The online PPV broadcast will be headlined by Melvin Manhoef and Mamed Khalidov, and co-headlined by the well traveled TBA against Mariusz Podzianowski. Sherdog has the news:

Mamed Khalidov and Melvin Manhoef are once again slated to compete under Poland’s KSW banner.

The middleweights will headline KSW 23, which takes place June 8 at Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland.

Khalidov (26-4-2) has won his last 6 fights, all against former UFC fighters, including submission wins over Kendall Grove, Matt Lindland, and Jesse Taylor, as well as a KO over Rodney Wallace.

Manhoef (27-10-1) is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Brock Larson at ONE FC 8 in Singapore last April. The Dutch striker previously won 3 fights in a row, including a TKO stoppage over Denis Kang.

If this matchup sounds familiar ... it's because they've tried making this before. Manhoef and Khalidov were scheduled to fight at KSW 21 but Manhoef was forced off the card with an injury.
