Materla, the reigning champion, tipped the scales at 184.9 pounds for his clash with Drwal (185.2). In addition, heavyweight co-headliners Mariusz Pudzianowski (259.7) and Rolles Gracie (253) hit their contracted marks without issue.
KSW 31 takes place at Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland, on Saturday and also includes a light heavyweight title tilt pitting former Bellator king Attila Vegh (204.3) against Goran Reljic (204.8).

A longtime staple of the Polish promotion, Materla has lost just once in his last 10 outings. Most recently, the 31-year-old known as “Magic” stopped Jorge Luis Bezerra via second-round TKO at KSW 28. Drwal, a six-time UFC veteran, enters the contest riding a four-fight winning streak.
