Two brothers will compete on the same KSW card.
On Sunday morning, a person with knowledge of the situation informed Sherdog that Lukasz Rajewski would be locking horns with Bartlomiej Kopera in a lightweight clash at KSW 54. The Polish organization officially announced the match a few hours later.
In his latest cage appearance, Rajewski (9-6-1NC) submitted Piotr Przepiorka via rear-naked Choke in the third stanza of their encounter at Babilon MMA 11. Prior, "Raju" went on a three-bout skid. His last KSW appearance dates back to the KSW 44 event, when he submitted Leo Zulic thanks to a kneebar in the opening stanza in June 2018.
Kopera (9-5) is still looking for his first victory under the KSW banner. So far, he dropped a couple of decisions to Filip Wolanski and Maciej Kazieczko at KSW 42 and KSW 47, respectively.
On the same night, "Raju"'s brother, Sebastian Rajewski (8-5), will put his four-bout winning streak on the line against Armen Stepanyan (6-3) in a 155-pound clash.
KSW 54 will take place in Poland on Aug. 29. The card will be headlined by the lightweight title clash between Mateusz Gamrot and Shamil Musaev. The card will also feature the MMA debut of former professional boxer and kickboxer Izuagbe Ugonoh, who will take on Quentin Domingos in the heavyweight division.
