Starting from KSW 76 on November 12, Viaplay UK will become the official exclusive home of KSW for fight fans in the United Kingdom.
The KSW roster boasts some of the best UK talents including record-breaking KSW heavyweight champion Phil De Fries (22-6), former KSW middleweight champ Scott Askham (19-5), and Tom Breese (15-3), who faces Poland’s Pawel Pawlak (20-4-1) in an exciting middleweight clash at KSW 76.
The headline of this next event will see French sensation Salahdine Parnasse (16-1) attempt to become a double KSW champ when he meets Sebastian Rajewski (12-7) for the interim KSW lightweight title.
Viaplay UK will also showcase the tentpole XTB KSW 77 event on December 17 featuring one of the biggest fights in the history of European MMA as five-time world’s strongest man Mariusz Pudzianowski (17-7) meets former three-time KSW champion Mamed Khalidov (35-8-2) in front of a sold-out attendance of over 15,000 fans at the Arena Gliwice in Gliwice, Poland.

“I am excited that KSW will be part of Viaplay’s launch in the UK. In addition to our strong UK fanbase, this move will bring KSW into more homes across the whole United Kingdom and gives fans there more opportunities to not only support their own British stars but also enjoy KSW events every month.”
