Mamed Khalidov vs. Paulo Filho says it all for this card. This main event bout between two top notch middleweights speaks for just how far the KSW promotion has come along in nearly eight years of promoting. We can expect fireworks from the top of the card with Khalidov still within range of Zuffa radar (still waiting on Strikeforce to sign this guy, can't quite figure out what the problem is), and Filho probably not far from a big stage signing himself.
The co-main event brings former Strongman Mariusz Pudzanowski seeking revenge for his last loss against James Thompson. Sokoudjou will defend the KSW 205lb. title, looking to defeat Jan Blachowicz for a second time, and former IFL Middleweight Champion Matt Horwich will make his Poland debut against Michal Materla.
