KSW returns to action this Saturday, October 23, 2021, for KSW 64: Pudzianowski vs. Bombardier live from the Atlas Arena in Lodz, Poland. The main event will feature a main event that was originally set for KSW 59 in March with Serigne Ousmane Dia “Bombardier” vs. Mariusz Pudzianowski. Bombardier was forced to pull out of the fight literally hours before the bout due to appendicitis. Not to be outdone by the big guys, Sebastian Przybysz defends his bantamweight title against Team Maximo’s Bruno Santos. A special talent to keep an eye on out of Poland is Daniel Rutkowski, who will make his KSW debut against a very tough task in Filip Pejic. The event can be seen worldwide on FiteTV and the KSW app and KSWtv.
Mariusz Pudzianowski vs. Serigne Ousmane Dia “Bombardier”
After being pulled out of the initial contest just hours before the main event was set to take off, Bombardier is ready for his KSW debut against one of Poland’s most seasoned veterans. Though he is only 2-0 in MMA and lacks the experience for such a task, Dia greatly makes up for in Senegalese Wrestling. He is considered one of the top-tier greatest to ever compete in the sport. Standing at 6’6″ and weighing in at nearly 330-lbs, Dia will be one of the very few men to stand toe-to-toe with Pudz on a physicality scale.
Across the cage will stand a man with nearly more experience than any other man in KSW, Mariusz Pudzianowski, with a 15-7 record compared to Dia’s 2-0 record. Pudz has competed against the “who’s who” list of Polish and European heavyweights. Currently, the former World’s Strongest Man is on a three-fight winning streak with all three victories coming by KO/TKO finish. Either way this one goes, you can bet on a finish.

Co-Main Event Bantamweight Title Fight
Sebastian Przybysz vs. Bruno Santos
After earning the KSW bantamweight championship at KSW 59, Sebastian Przybysz is set to make his first title defense against Bruno Santos, who is currently 1-1 inside the KSW cage. Coincidentally, Santos’ lone KSW loss came to the hands of Antun Racic, the man Przybysz defeated for the title. With the champion showing a knack for the finish, he is able to win the bout a number of ways, four of his eight professional wins have come by KO/TKO while three have come by decision.
Others To Watch Out For On The Card
The former FEN and Babilon MMA featherweight champion, Daniel Rutkowski, (the two Polish organizations alongside KSW) is finally set to make his debut in the big league Saturday. Though his record shows 12-2, both of those losses came in his first two MMA contests. Since then, he has won 12 straight including six of those by KO/TKO and five by decision. This is a very dangerous fighter to keep your eye on as he ascends into the worldwide spotlight.
Shamil Musaev will make his return to action after his suspension for his post-fight antics with Uros Jurisic at KSW 58 in January. There is no doubt Musaev possesses the skills to become a future welterweight champion. Still undefeated in his career at 15-0, look for him to rebound from his post-fight event and show why he is one of KSW’s top talents.
