The main event of KSW Colosseum 2 will feature a trilogy bout between Mamed Khalidov and Scott Askham

Poland’s celebrated MMA promotion, KSW, has set the stage for two of their best fighters to face-off in the latest event for the summer. Mamed Khalidov and Scott Askham will battle it out once again for the title on June 3 at the PGE National Stadium in Warsaw. Excitement for the upcoming event has been building since the announcement was made earlier this week.

After two intense battles, the stakes are high for the upcoming match, with Khalidov and Askham levelhandedly holding one victory each. Originally, the two faced off in December 2019, where Askham took the victory by decision. The two then met again 10 months later, where Khalidov came back with a vengeance and secured a spectacular victory in a mere 36 seconds with a switch kick knockout.

Khalidov has shown to be an ambitious force, and he seems more determined than ever to keep adding to his pile of victories. He has taken part in some massive fights and prevailed as the winner in several divisions, including middleweight and light heavyweight. In his most recent fight, he beat Mariusz Pudzianowski, another KSW legend, at the KSW 77 by an outstanding first-round TKO.

Meanwhile, though Askham had a tough time after his loss, he is eager to take his place back in the spotlight. Unfortunately, an injury kept him away from the ring after losing to Khalidov the second time. Since then, he continued his 5-win streak, which snapped with his last altercation. Askham now aims to get himself back into the game with a fantastic comeback that will undo the unfortunate dip in his performance.

Details of the rest of the Colosseum 2 event are yet to emerge. Another already confirmed fight will take place in the heavyweight division between Mariusz Pudzianowski and the talented, Artur Szpilka. With the two decisive battles between Khalidov and Askham in the backdrop, KSW promises to offer yet again, some captivating records of encounters to its followers. With its unique combination of fervent style and a clientele that almost breathes and lives the sport, KSW is known for bringing together some of the most exciting fights on the MMA scene.
