KSW - Road to Wembley
KSW in SSE Arena Wembley:
The biggest mixed martial arts organization in Europe, Poland’s KSW Federation makes history with its first international show, scheduled for October 31st in the famous The SSE Arena, Wembley in London, England.
MMA aficionados from all over Britain will be now able to witness the most spectacular combat sports event in the world, featuring some of the most exciting European fighters competing in the KSW’s circular cage.
In the event’s headliner five-time World’s Strongest Man Mariusz Pudzianowski (8-3, 2 KO, 2 Sub) will fight for the first time on UK soil. In five years of his professional career, the world-famous athlete has made an incredible metamorphosis from a freak show attraction to a complete mixed martial artist. In his most recent outings Pudzianowski defeated two former UFC fighters Sean McCorkle and Oli Thompson as well as judo Olympic champion Paweł Nastula.
Also on the card, one of the most decorated heavyweight kickboxers in Poland and the extraordinary personality Marcin Różalski (5-3, 3 KO, 1 Sub) will make his return to professional MMA after one-year hiatus. After collecting three consecutive victories over Rodney Glunder, Paul Slowinski and Nick Rossborough, the mighty Pole was matched against kickboxing legend Peter Graham last October. Before he lost due to knee injury in the second, he was going blow for blow with a dangerous Australian. Now he returns to KSW cage for another memorable war.
Including the announced headliners, KSW: Road to Wembley will feature some of the biggest and most recognizable KSW stars along with top British fighters in the seven main card bouts.
Winner: Peter Graham TKO (Punches and Elbows)
Round 2 - Time 2:00
Pudzianowki (9-4) was visibly exhausted in round two, and Graham wasted no time in attacking on the feet. Pudzianowski’s only response was to fall to his back, which allowed Graham to go to work with ground-and-pound. When “The Chief” decided to return to his feet, it took some serious effort just for Pudzianowski to follow suit.
Moments later, Graham sent his reeling foe to the canvas once more, and from there, the finish was academic. The defeat snaps a four-fight winning streak for Pudzianowski; Graham, meanwhile, won for just the second time in six outings.
Winner: Borys Mankowski, Belt defender (Guillotine Choke)
Round 1 - Time 3:02
Moments after losing a point for landing an illegal knee, Borys Mankowski submitted Jesse Taylor with a guillotine choke to retain his KSW welterweight strap in the evening’s co-main event. The end came 3:02 into round one, giving Mankowski his fifth straight triumph in the Polish promotion
Winner: James McSweeney (Rear-Naked Choke)
Round 1 - Time 2:16
James McSweeney took fellow kickboxer Marcin Rozalski out of his element, submitting his opponent with a rear-naked choke 2:13 into round one of their heavyweight clash. The win snapped a two-fight skid for the London native, who initially rose to prominence during his time on “The Ultimate Fighter 10.”
Winner: Tomasz Narkun, New Belt Holder (KO (Punches)
Round 1 - Time 1:55
Tomasz Narkun avenged a previous loss to Goran Reljic in decisive fashion, as he captured the KSW light heavyweight title with a first-round technical knockout victory. Narkun put his foe away with a pair of massive right hands from inside guard at the 1:55 mark.
Winner: Mateusz Gamrot TKO (Punches)
Round 2 - Time: 3:21
n a battle of up-and-coming lightweights, Poland’s Mateusz Gamrot earned a technical knockout victory over Russia’s Marif Piraev. A barrage of hammerfists from top position brought a halt to the contest 3:21 into round two.
Winner: Jim Wallhead TKO (Punches)
Jim Wallhead avoided the traps of submission specialist Rafal Moks en route to a second-round technical knockout triumph in a welterweight scrap. A left uppercut-right hook combination from “Judo Jim” sent Moks (10-8) stumbling backward to his seat, and a follow-up left put the Pole out for good at the 2:26 mark of the period.
Winner: Oli Thompson DQ (Knee to Head of Grounded Fighter)
Oli Thompson defeated Michal Wlodarek via disqualification when Wlodrek landed a pair of illegal knees to his downed foe in the third stanza. After a brief halt in the action, the English strongman, bloodied near his left eye, informed the referee that he was unable to continue and was awarded the victory.
