Two blockbuster main-events have been added to October’s KSW 36 card. Long-time KSW middleweight title holder Michał Materla (23-5, 5 KO, 12 Sub) will look to make another step on his route to reclaim the belt, facing the most dangerous submission specialist in the world Rousimar Palhares (18-7, 15 Sub).
Back at KSW 35 in May the mighty Berserkers Team product rebounded from his title fight loss to Mamed Khalidov, dispatching another KSW legend Antoni Chmielewski in the first round. With another KSW championship title shot at stake, Materla will do everything in his power to defeat such renowned and cut-throat submission specialist as “Toquinho”.
In the event’s co-headliner the rising star of Polish mixed martial arts Tomasz Narkun (12-2, 10 Sub, 2 KO) will defend his KSW light heavyweight title for the second time against the former champion Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou (17-14, 11 KO, 1 Sub). After finishing Goran Reljic and Cassio Barbosa in his recent title fights, the 26-year-old BJJ black belt will look to score another quick stoppage in his impressive title reign. Meanwhile “the African Assassin” will try to reclaim the championship belt he held back in 2011.
Also on the card, the most-promising lightweight prospect in Europe Mateusz Gamrot (11-0, 4 KO, 2 Sub) will face yet-to-be-named opponent, while the hard-hitting Polish heavyweights Michał Kita (16-8, 9 KO, 5 Sub) and Michał Włodarek (7-1, 3 KO, 1 Sub) will square off against each other.
KSW 36 goes down on Saturday, October 1st 2016 in Zielona Góra, Poland.
