Fresh off the monumental KSW 39: Colosseum event at Warsaw’s National Stadium, Europe’s leading Mixed Martial Arts promotion KSW will make their anticipated debut on the Irish soil as KSW 40 will take place at the 3Arena on October 22.
It will mark KSW's second event outside of Poland, after a very successful KSW 32: Road to Wembley event in London back in late 2015.
Famous for exceptional production values, KSW puts on one of the greatest combat sporting spectacles in the world and is the clear industry leader in Europe, gathering millions of viewers in front of TV sets and thousands of fans in the biggest arenas. And events are jam packed with some of the biggest and best fighters from around the world.
Dubbed by the world famous Fighters Only magazine as “The Greatest Show on Earth”, May’s KSW 39: Colosseum was the second most attended MMA event in the history of the sport and the biggest ever in Europe. This fall KSW plans to present another memorable and record-breaking show for the most enthusiastic Irish MMA fans and significant Polish community in Dublin.
The two main events fights will feature some of the biggest names in KSW. Five-time world’s strongest Mariusz Pudzianowski will square off against the world famous fighter James “The Hammer” McSweeney, while the undefeated KSW lightweight champion Mateusz Gamrot will rematch Ireland’s own “Stormin” Norman Parke.
