Top Polish promotion KSW is set to host their first international event in October when they venture over to England for a show at the SSE Arena in Wembley, London. Atop the fight card will be Polish superstar Mariusz Pudzianowski, who is scheduled to face Peter Graham in a fight that will likely determine the next title challenger for the heavyweight title.
After suffering three losses during the first four years as a professional fighter, the former five-time World's Strongest Man has compiled a four-fight win streak that includes victories over the likes of former UFC fighters Sean McCorkle and Oli Thompson, Pawel Nastula, and Rolles Gracie in his most recent outing several months ago. He believes a win against Graham would serve as his final pit-stop before receiving a title shot in 2016.
"Defeating Graham is one of my last steps on my road to KSW heavyweight title, which is currently in Karol Bedorf's hands. Peter is a tough and experienced foe, but come October 31st I'll show everyone that I can beat he more decisively than Bedorf did" - Pudzianowski promises. "I can't wait showcase my skills in front of the Polish and British fans in London!"
The event will also feature an intriguing welterweight contest between UK MMA standout Jim Wallhead dangerous Polish grappler Rafał Moks. British heavyweight Oli Thompson will also face the undefeated Pole Michał Włodarek.
