A heavyweight championship tilt between James McSweeney and Karol Bedorf will top the KSW 34 bill, promotion officials recently announced.
KSW 34 takes place on March 5 at Torwar Hall in Warsaw, Poland and will be available on KSWTV.com. In addition to the headliner, KSW revealed the signing of former M-1 welterweight champion Yasubey Enomoto, who will make his promotional debut at the event against Aslambek Saidov in a welterweight bout.
Bedorf, who captured KSW gold with a victory over Pawel Nastula in 2013, enters the bout on a a seven-fight winning streak. In 2015, “Coco” scored a head-kick knockout against Michal Kita at KSW 33 on Nov. 28 and took a three-round verdict over Peter Graham at KSW 31 in May.
A cast member of “The Ultimate Fighter 10,” McSweeney made his KSW debut on Oct. 31, when he submitted Marcin Rozalski with a rear-naked choke 2:16 into the opening stanza. The well-traveled Englishman is 15-13 as a professional, with all of his triumphs coming inside the distance.
Enomoto, 32, is coming off victories over Shamil Zavurov and Abubakar Vagaev in 2015. The Swiss muay Thai practitioner is 14-6 since beginning his MMA career in 2006. Saidov has won five of his last six bouts, including four victories under the KSW banner.
