KSW 43: ‘Robocop’ is now an MMA fighter and he’s ready to kick South African ass

If you’re an ignorant American (guilty), you probably don’t know much about the International mixed martial arts (MMA) circuit, but Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki — mercifully shortened to KSW for tongue-tied Yanks like myself — is pretty fucking huge in Europe and the top combat sports promotion in its native Poland.

How huge? KSW 39: “Colosseum” drew more than 57,000 fans.

KSW 43 is going down in less than a month (April 14) inside Hala Stulecia in Wroclaw, pitting Olympic medalist Damian Janikowski (2-0) against former BAMMA & EFC middleweight champion Yannick Bahati (8-3) in the 185-pound main event.

In the KSW 43 co-headliner, Roberto “Robocop” Soldic (13-2) defends his welterweight title against two-weight EFC champion Dricus Du Plessis (11-1), a grudge match featured in the recently-released preview video embedded above.
