ZAGREB, 12 October 2020 – It is official, the RoboCop is back. KSW welterweight champion Roberto Soldic (17-3) will return at KSW 56 in Poland on November 14th.
Known as one of the most exciting prospects in the world, Soldic has thrilled the MMA world with his highlight-reel finishes since making his KSW debut in 2017. The Croatian won the KSW welterweight title in his promotional debut with the demolition of former long-time champ Borys Mankowski.
In his next fight, he would drop the title to Dricus Du Plessis but immediately gained it back in a rematch, finishing the South African in spectacular fashion. Since then he has scored a number of one-punch knockout wins and is currently on an 11-1 run since 2016.
The last time we saw Soldic in action was prior to the Covid-19 pandemic and now he is excited to get back into the KSW arena to defend his title. His opponent and challenger will be announced soon.
Also announced for KSW 56 are the returns of KSW light heavyweight champion Tomasz Narkun (17-3) and undefeated rising star Karolina Owczarz (3-0). Their opponents will also be announced in the coming days.
