Thiago Silva vs. Martin Zawada added to KSW 49 on May 18

Recommended Posts

With two titles set to be on the line, next month’s KSW 49 just received a light heavyweight addition.

After a win over James McSweeney in his promotional debut, Thiago Silva (21-8-0) will return to the KSW stage against Martin Zawada (28-14-1), a promotion official told MMA Junkie. KSW 19 takes place on May 18 at Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland.

The event will also feature a scrap for the promotion’s vacant middleweight title, between Michael Materla and Scott Askham, as well as a welterweight title battle between champ Roberto Soldic and challenger Krystian Kaszubowski.

Silva, a UFC and WSOF veteran, comes into the bout following a submission loss in the co-main event of Russian Cagefighting Championship 5 last December. Two months prior to that, though, Silva successfully moved up to the heavyweight division in a short-notice call against McSweeney.

Silva first came to KSW after completing a four-fight stint under the Absolute Championship Berkut banner in which he went 2-2. The 205-pound veteran had a 12-fight UFC run, where he had wins over notables like Keith Jardine, Rafael Cavalcante and Matt Hamill before moving on to an unsuccessful one-off with WSOF.

Zawada also looks to bounce back from a loss at KSW 44 in June, to KSW 49 headliner and fan-favorite Materla. The loss snapped a two-fight winning streak for the 35-year-old veteran, which was capped off by a TKO over Łukasz Jurkowski at KSW 42. Martin, brother of UFC fighter David Zawada, had his KSW debut in 2007 and has competed for multiple promotions since.
