KSW 76 takes place on Saturday, November 12 in Grodzisk Mazowiecki. A small town placed near the Polish capital, Warsaw, will host this fight card headlined by a KSW interim lightweight title fight.
Originally the fight card was supposed to be headlined by a title affair between Marian Ziółkowski and Salahdine Parnasse. Unfortunately, the Pole had to withdraw due to a leg injury. Sebastian Rajewski, a former lightweight title contender steps in to take on the French fighter.
Main Event: Interim Lightweight Title Bout
Parnasse has a 16 – 1 professional MMA record. He made his promotional debut at KSW 41 back in 2017. Since then he stacked up an 8 – 1 balance and grabbed both the interim and undisputed KSW featherweight titles. The reigning and defending featherweight champion aims to be a two-division title holder.
Rajewski is a former kickboxing and a product of the Polish MMA circuit. He made his KSW debut at KSW 54. At KSW 71 he challenged Ziółkowski for the lightweight strap but lost via the Unanimous Decision. The fight was so evenly fought that many fans and experts thought he should win the belt. Rajewski was granted a rematch, but it was canceled due to the champion’s injury.
ARE YOU EXCITED!? 🤩 #KSW76
