Sources: Phil De Fries, Szymon Bajor Booked to Collide in KSW 84 Main Event on July 15



July 15’s Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki card will see the return of heavyweight kingpin Philip De Fries in an intriguing matchup with Szymon Bajor.

According to sources with knowledge of the situation, De Fries and Bajor will collide in the KSW 84 headliner at PolSat Plus Arena in Gdynia, Poland.

De Fries (23-6, 1 NC; 9-0 KSW) is the most dominant champion in KSW history, with eight title defenses under his belt. The Ultimate Fighting Championship alum captured the vacant heavyweight championship with a first-round stoppage over Michal Andryszak at KSW 45 in 2018. He then overcame challengers such as former 205-pound titleholder Tomasz Narkun (twice), Michal Kita, fellow UFC vet Darko Stosic, and more. In his most recent assignment, De Fries crushed Todd Duffee with punches in the opening period at KSW 79, vindicating a defeat at the hands of the American dating back to 2012.

Bajor (24-9, 0-0 KSW) is coming off a brief stint under the Professional Fighters League banner, where he dominated Ronny Markes en route to a unanimous decision in August. A former Fight Exclusive Night heavyweight titleholder, Bajor is 7-1 as of late and is riding a four-bout winning streak. The 34-year-old Polish fighter boasts an 84% finishing rate with 10 stoppages by strikes and 10 submissions.

The upcoming KSW 84 event will also feature former 135-pound champion Sebastian Przybysz and 2012 London Olympics Greco-Roman wrestling bronze medalist Damian Janikowski clashing with yet-to-be-announced opponents.
