KSW 68 will take place this March, and a number of the fighters set for the card have been revealed.

Promotion officials announced the news Wednesday. With names like Daniel Rutkowski, Damian Janikowski, and Shamil Musaev in the mix, the event is set for March 19, 2022 at the Radomskie Centrum Sportu in Radom, Poland.

Also appearing on the KSW 68 card this March will be Patryk Kaczmarczyk and Albert Odzimkowski. Match-ups have yet to be officially announced.

Janikowski (6-4), who took the Bronze medal at the 2012 London Olympics in Greco-Roman wrestling, will be looking to get back in the win column at KSW 68. He saw a two-fight win streak snapped in his last outing, against Pawel Pawlak.

Musaev (15-0-1), most recently competing at welterweight, started his pro career a perfect 15-0. Last year, the Russian ran up against Michal Pietrzak, a fight that ended in a majority decision.

Featherweight Daniel Rutkowski (13-2, 1NC) has been pulling double duty of late, with a boxing career in full swing alongside his mixed martial arts exploits. In 2021, he went 2-2 in the boxing ring, while winning his lone MMA fight by way of head kick against Filip Pejić at KSW 64.

Prior to KSW 68 rolling around, KSW 67 takes place later this month, and sees heavyweight champ Phil De Fries take on former UFC fighter Darko Stosic. That event takes place on February 26, 2022 in Warsaw, Poland.
