Multiple title fights are expected when KSW 50 goes down in London, England this September.

With its milestone 50th event pending, Poland’s KSW has begun to prepare for a big show — and a return to London, England. On Tuesday, the rising MMA promotion, which has been making advances in Europe, officially announced that KSW 50 would take place at the SSE Arena, Wembley this September 14.

Although no fights were revealed, both heavyweight champion Phil De Fries (17-6) and light heavyweight champ Tomasz Narkun (16-3) were announced for the card. The pair most recently faced off in a super fight, with De Fries retaining his heavyweight title. This time out, however, they’ll be defending their respective titles against new challengers.

The promotion also teased that more title fights were expected to be booked for the show.

“KSW 50 will be a special event,” said KSW co-owner Maciej Kawulski in a press release. “We are fifteen years now with KSW after launching in 2004 and we’ve just grown and grown. This event will be a celebration of the past fifteen years for us and the fight card we are putting together will be a gift for the fans. Unmissable!”

“After two very successful events at The SSE Arena, Wembley in the past I am very excited to celebrate our 50th event in London,” said KSW co-owner Martin Lewandowski. “This event will serve as a thank you to KSW fans across the world for the past fifteen years. Whether you can join us in the arena on the night or watch live on KSWTV.com, we are looking forward to celebrating with you.”

KSW 50 will be the promotion’s third visit to London, following trips in 2015 and 2018.
