Video: KSW 49 media day faceoffs, where freak shows and title fights fill loaded lineup

Poland’s leading promotion returns to action on Saturday, and when an organization that admittedly draws its influence from PRIDE hosts an event, you know you’re getting an interesting lineup.

Such is the case with Saturday’s “KSW 49: Materla vs. Askham 2,” which streams live on DAZN from Ergo Arena in Gdansk.

In the night’s main event, former champ Michal Materla (27-6) takes on six-time UFC veteran Scott Askham (17-4) with the promotion’s vacant middleweight title on the line.

In the co-feature, knockout artist Roberto Soldic (15-3) puts his welterweight title on the line against undefeated challenger Krystian Kaszubowski (7-0).

Featured action includes a pair of beefy heavyweights squaring off with former KSW champ Karol Bedorf (15-4) facing UFC and Bellator veteran Damian Grabowski (21-5), “The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes” winner Norman Parke (26-6-1) against Artur Sowinski (19-10), and fitness model and social media giant Erko Jun (2-0) against Poland’s Akop Szostak (3-2).
