Salahdine Parnasse will square off against Filip Pejic in the KSW 61 co-main event on June 5.
The Polish promotion recently announced the featherweight pairing. KSW 61 takes place at the Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland, and marks the organization’s first event with fans in attendance since the COVID-19 pandemic took hold worldwide. The card is headlined by a heavyweight clash between Mariusz Pudzianowski and Lukasz Jurkowsi and is available via KSWTV.com.
Parnasse is coming off the first loss of his professional career, when he relinquished the featherweight crown to Daniel Torres in a first-round knockout defeat at KSW 58. Prior to that, the 23-year-old Frenchman had been victorious in his first five promotional appearances.
Pejic, meanwhile, snapped a two-fight losing streak in his last outing, as he scored an 11-second knockout of Sebastian Rajewski at KSW 56 on Nov. 14. The one-time UFC competitor is 15-4-2 over the course of his pro tenure and 2-2 under the KSW banner.
