Poland’s KSW returned to action on Saturday, November 14 with a Nation vs. Nation themed event. KSW 56 was billed as “Poland vs. Croatia,” with some of the best fighters from both nations facing off atop the card.
In the main event, former KSW middleweight champion Michael Materla of Poland looked to prevent Croatia’s Roberto Soldic from establishing himself at a second weight class. No title was on the line, but as KSW’s reigning welterweight champion, a win over Materla could lead to a double-champ opportunity for Soldic.
The co-main event, meanwhile, saw light heavyweight gold on the line, as Tomasz Narkun, representing Poland, faced undefeated Croatian challenger Ivan Erslan.
To round out the Poland vs. Croatia format, a 150lb catchweight bout saw Poland’s Sebastian Rajewski face off with Croatian Filip Pejić. Argentinian-born Croatian Francisco Barrio, meanwhile, fought Mateusz Legierski.
Also featured on the KSW 56 card was German PFL veteran Max Coga, taking on Brazilian Daniel Torres.
