Polish promotion KSW was in action in Torun, Poland on Saturday, June 18 for KSW 71, featuring a lightweight title fight in its main event.
Headlining the card, Marian Ziolkowski was looking to make the third defense of his 155 pound belt, taking on Sebastian Rajewski. A five-fight KSW veteran, Rajewski had won three straight to claim his shot at gold.
Ziolkowski, who had likewise won three straight since coming up short against Mateusz Gamrot, had two finishes in his last three fights. With ex-champ Gamrot exiting the promotion to head to the UFC, Ziolkowski had claimed the vacant title in 2020.
In the co-main event of KSW 71, kickboxing legend Errol Zimmerman squared off with former heavyweight champ Marcin Rozalski in a hybrid rules fight. The fight was contested under the K-1 rule set, but using MMA gloves and three five-minute rounds.
