The Polish promotion recently announced the booking, which will be contested at heavyweight. Four other contests were also confirmed: Damian Janikowski vs. Jason Radcliffe at middleweight; Lukasz Rajewski vs. Mateusz Legierski at lightweight; Sebastian Rajewski vs. Savo Lazic at lightweight and Krystian Kaszubowski vs. Michal Pietrzak at middleweight.
