The full card has been finalized for KSW 17. Two rematches have been scheduled for the event with Jan Blachowicz facing Theirry Sokoudjou for the seond time this year. Sokoudjou defeated Blachowicz back in March to take home the KSW belt. In the co-main event slot, former World Strongman Mariusz Pudzanowski searches for redemption against James Thompson. Thompson subbed Pudz in the second round of their May 21 meeting.
At the top of the ticket, reigning KSW Light Heavyweight Champion Mamed Khalidov will put the belt on the line against Pride and WEC veteran Paulo Filho. Khalidov has been on Strikeforce's radar for some time now. He currently rides a 3-fight win streak while Filho has dropped losses in his last two outings.
Also, Matt Horwich will be making his KSW debut against Michał Materla.
