Reminder: KSW 17 Goes down Tonight, Should be Completely Insane

In the absence of a UFC event tonight, many of you are going to tune in to Bellator 59 to catch this season’s Heavyweight and Bantamweight tournament finals. But let’s say that Bellator isn’t your scene. Let’s say that you’re the type of person to watch an event and say “This is fun and all, but I’d much rather watch freak show fights and can crushing”. Well, good news: Your favorite Polish promotion, KSW returns tonight with both of the above.

It’s almost fitting that a fighter known for pulling out of fights would pull out of his retirement fight. Astute readers may have remembered that KSW 17 was supposed to be Paulo Filho’s final fight, but that FIlho, as he’s known to do, pulled out of the fight at the last minute. Jesse “JT Money” Taylor has been recruited as a late replacement to take on Mamed Khalidov, who was last seen choking out Matt Lindland at KSW 16.

Speaking of KSW 16, this card also features a rematch between Mariusz Pudzianowski and James Thompson. Their first fight was a surprisingly entertaining affair that saw Thompson walk away victorious. Shogun vs. Henderson it will not be, but it should be a decent fight nonetheless.

Also in action tonight: Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou defends his LHW championship against Jan Blachowicz, who he defeated at KSW 15 to win the vacant title. Meanwhile, Matt Horwich attempts to pick up his first victory since 2010 when he takes on Michal Materla. Horwich has gone 4-9 since the start of 2008.

So yeah I've never complained about anything here on CP, but can you guys just do away with your god awful fighter wiki. It hasn't been updated in over 3 years and looks terrible. Why do you even still have it? It was never that good to begin with, and now its a joke that you even still link to it.

@ Lenoz, Yeah I liked Jewtuszko, he knocked out Njoukouani in the WEC and I was expecting big things from him, oh well.

Much obliged dickholes.

Sounds like Pudz's decision win was pretty controversial. There's a video out already of James Thompson grabbing the mike and shouting some shit about KSW and calling the whole thing a joke, should make an interesting-ish story tomorrow.

Huerta and War Machine are also fighting tonight in Texas.

Didn't realise Maciej Jewtuszko got dropped from the UFC after one. Hope he gets back on the win tonight, his highlight package was fun.

Also, what's up with your L key?

Update - 7 ZT is 2.16 CAD. That's a steal, even on a shitty stream.
kellyman- November 26, 2011 at 12:33 pm
To be fair, it looks like KSW pulled him before he had a chance to pull out. Anyone ever use I want to know how their stream looks, and if I can afford 7zt's.

At first I thought you were talking about Karma
